Moravian College offers three workshops addressing human resource issues

(Bethlehem, Pennsylvania)— Continuing and Graduate Studies at Moravian College will offer a human resource workshop, “How to Build a High Performance Culture,” on May 7, 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m., in the UBC room, Haupert Union Building, on the Moravian Main Street campus. The workshop will be led by Richard Cipoletti, president of RCC Associates and regional human resource consultant.

The workshop will demonstrate to human resource professionals how to help their employees meet the challenges of improving productivity and performance. Topics will include clarifying the vision and values of the organization, modeling the behavior desired in employees, communicating clear expectations, hiring for cultural fit, and evolving the high performance culture to meet new needs.

Richard Cipoletti will also present the human resource workshop, “How to Effectively Handle a Reorganization,” on May 14, 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m., in the UBC room, Haupert Union Building, on the Moravian Main Street campus. Human resource professionals will learn how to avoid the need for major reorganization, to be ready to handle legal and employee considerations, to implement communication and training strategies to ease the pain of reorganization, and to monitor changes for effectiveness and agile modification.

“How to Help Employees through Difficult Economic Times” is the topic of a free breakfast presentation on May 20, 8:30 a.m., UBC room in the Haupert Union Building. Dick Brown, president of Retirement Education Associates, will lead an open forum for human resource professionals on how to help employees understand and utilize employee retirement plans. In a climate of economic uncertainty, war, and corporate malfeasance, employees often distrust their company’s 401/k profit-sharing plan at the very time they need to invest for their future. Brown will share his experience in working with local firms and will lead the discussion of delivery system choices and acceptable cost factors.
