October 11, 2007 - The Printing Industries Alliance (PIA) will sponsor a half-day seminar October 25th on "Rethinking Workplace Management: A Fresh Look at the Human Resource Management Issues Facing Today's Graphic Communications Industry."
The value-packed program will be held from 8:30 a.m.-12:00 noon at HudsonYards,
450 W. 33rd Street (between 9th and 10th Avenues, 11th Floor) and presented by nationally known labor attorney Nicholas J. Fiorenza. Mr. Fiorenza is Counsel to PIA and a frequent contributor to various industry publications such as Printing Impressions, which carries a regular column entitled "Fiorenza on HR Management."
With all of the changes taking place in our society, it is difficult to deal with employees in the same manner as we have in years past. New attitudes have developed along with new work ethics and motivational techniques.
Today's graphic communications managers need to employ new methods of supervision and approaches that are appropriate to today's workforce. Inspiring team work and developing goal oriented behavior is a widespread but often unfulfilled objective of many managers.
Whether your company is trying to stay union free or dealing with a union, dealing with quality or discipline issues, expanding or contracting its workforce, a fresh look at Human Resources systems is critical to your firm's success. Your real life HR problems will also be addressed in a question and answer period during the program.
Those wishing to attend this informative session may register online at www.PIAlliance.org or by calling PIA at 908/276-4482 or toll free at (800) 777-4PIA.
Fees are $40 to PIA members, $60 to non-members and include continental breakfast, presentation and program handouts.
