According to a U.S. Small Business Administration survey, small and medium businesses (SMB) spend up to 80% more per employee on federal regulatory compliance than large companies. Even more, SMB owners who don’t have a designated HR manager increase their risk unless they stay vigilant with current compliance news and policies. Whether you’re an HR team of one or many, keeping up with the complexities of operating a business and managing HR tasks can be daunting.
In this keynote session, Josh Bersin, a global industry analyst in the HCM space, will share his unique insights and best practices based on years of research to help SMBs effectively manage HR and adapt to the needs of the modern workforce in today’s ever-changing landscape.
