Mission Statement

The NVTC HR & Benefits committee's mission is to create a community of members interested in sharing best practices, collaborating, learning about the latest advancements in human resource management, and staying informed on employee benefit issues including developments and requirements of the Affordable Care Act. The committee will hold quarterly events featuring guest speakers and smaller committee meetings for members to collaborate and share ideas in a more intimate setting. The committee will produce an electronic newsletter with relevant content as well as an annual work/life survey, and provide CE credits to those in attendance as appropriate. If you handle HR or employee benefit functions within your organization, consider joining the committee!

Tone At The Top: Leading Successfully Through Crisis

Tone At The Top: Leading Successfully Through Crisis

The success of leaders is often tested during times of crisis. As reflected in recent current events, an organization's reputation is inherently linked to its public response. Crises present tremendous opportunities for company leaders to exhibit empathy, transparency and dedication to strong ethical values. In doing so, an organization can garner long-lasting respect from stakeholders and employees that can help the organization succeed after the crisis.

Organizations' reputations reflect the values and ethics of the leaders that run them and performance under stress can highlight a leader's strengths, or on the contrary, may bring to light a leader's weaknesses. Join the HR & Benefits Committee for a dynamic panel discussion as we examine the traits needed to demonstrate successful leadership during challenging times. Through our collaborative discussion, we will explore how executive leaders have shined despite challenging circumstances.
