The Santa Barbara Human Resources Association presents The Inside-Out Conference: The Workplace through the Eyes & Hearts of Employees Annual Half Day Conference on Wednesday, October 16, 2013 at Hotel Goleta in Goleta, CA.

Instead of discussing what HR programs are and how they work, this conference examines an organization from the perspective of employees – what’s important to them, and why.

The Why is how engagement and commitment directly affect the success of the r organization’s workplace objectives productivity goal and impact on profitability and success.

“This event is designed for you” says “Kristina Kiefer, SBHRA President. “Unlike most professional development conferences you have attended in the past, here you will gain perspective into the views of the Workplace as Employees See It and Feel It”.

Why is this important? It’s called Engagement and Commitment. Research has revealed that employees care about what they do, but do they really and to what extent? Lack of Commitment impacts on productivity, and that, in turn, impacts on profitability.

Says Kiefer; “We are fortunate to bring to you three highly regarded experts who will share their insight and stimulate our senses on how an employee views their direct impact in the workplace. Join us to take in and enrich ourselves on the bigger scope on this discussion with leading Thought Leaders.” This event will not only allow you to network with an array professionals from Santa Barbara and surrounding counties, but will also provide you with vital information to take back to your workplace. You will not want to miss this opportunity.”
