Change has been constant since Spring of 2020 and never was that experience more than at the workplace. With so much disruption, where would a HR professional or CFO get highly valuable, relevant and timely information to help navigate their benefit programs needs in 2022and beyond?
With our organization as nothing is more powerful than giving away the knowledge of 25+ years in voluntary. Pamela wrote and designed the course “Voluntary Benefits and Enrollment Best Practices in the New Covid World” in summer of 2020. Immediately it was approved launched for Continuing Education (CE) for both SHRM (Society of Human Resource Manager) and the State of Alaska for Life & Health producers.
Moving the agency to Oahu, Pamela gave the (updated 2021) course to 75 Hawaii agents and brokers on July 15th and over 44 SHRM members Nov 4th.
In February of 2022, Pamela designed a new CE for both Life & Health agents/brokers in Hawaii and also for SHRM (Hawaii and Alaska). This CE focuses not on Covid, but where the workplace is now and where it’s headed. Excited to share this course in the future as this one is all about RECRUITING & RETENTION
