In an effort to meet the needs of all business people in the personnel field, the Human Resources Council has tailored their programs to meet the needs of business personnel situations. The traditional forum for this Council includes tours of other local businesses, discussion relating to human resource issues, sharing of forms and policies, and colleague networking. The Council also brings in speakers who make presentations on timely topics or topics of concern to the profession such as worker’s compensation, FMLA, employee benefits, workplace violence, drug testing policies, etc. Some of the meetings are held jointly with the Safety Council if the topic is of interest to both groups.
The group generally meets every other month, usually the 2nd Tuesday for a lunch meeting. Contact Machelle Dykes or call 217-442-6201 for more information. Upcoming meetings include February 13 with a presentation on the proper inspection process of safety eyewash and showers, and on March 13 with a Business Preparedness update by the Vermilion County Emergency Management Agency.
