ARLINGTON, Va., Sept. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As companies are picking up again from what seemed to be a long economic tailspin, traditional functions of the HR role are still important. These include recruitment; employee training and development; remuneration and benefits; and fostering a good corporate culture, to mention a few. However as a new generation of employees are waking up to a world in which social, environmental and human rights will be taken for granted, HR managers may need to rethink some of the ways in which they will attract and retain key talent. A new webinar from BNA on September 28, 2011, Corporate Social Responsibility for Human Resources (http://www.bna.com/corporate-social-responsibility-16027/), offered by two leading global EAP (Employee Assistance Program) experts, will explore how thriving businesses in the new 21st century have to rewrite the roadmap for HR that includes Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
In 90 minutes, Cecilia Utne, Intercultural Consultant, Shepell.fgi and Rensia Melles, Senior Consultant, Global Clinical Solutions at Shepell.fgi will cover:
- Social marketing
- Environment (sustainability and resilience)
- Global mindset
- Human rights, health and safety
