About This Meeting

Companies' human resources practices have a profound effect on how people feel about their companies and jobs, so it is not surprising that ESOP companies often have a different approach to human resources. This session explores the role of human resources -- starting with hiring and onboarding, continuing through training and job evaluation, and including retirement and wellness programs -- in promoting a strong, healthy organization where people think and act like owners.
