HUMAN RESOURCES PROGRAM
The Human Resource group offers a wide range of topics in the area of HR and training. The evening meetings include a speaker or panel/group discussion on a topic, along with a light dinner. Meetings are held either in a member’s home or office. And there is plenty of opportunities for networking. Another valuable spin-off of the group is the pooling and sharing of information, whether it is on career opportunities or new developments in HR or Training or notification of workshops/courses taking place.
The Human Resource group is open to all PrimeTime members, regardless of professional background. If you find the meeting topic of interest, you are welcome to join the session.
