In this interactive session, we will talk about a practical approach to tax and compliance while discussing common risk areas and recent legislative updates that may affect your organization.

August 25 — Organizational Design Reviews in Higher Education

Higher education is changing rapidly, and some traditional approaches simply don’t meet the needs of today. With a hybrid teaching model and sometimes remote faculty, staff, and students, institutions need to address how functional areas are managed in order to promote student success as well as sustainability.

This session will look at human resource strategy, workforce, and succession planning — along with how to begin rethinking operations to meet the needs of tomorrow.

At the end of this session, you will be able to:

  • Identify the current challenges of succession and workforce planning in higher education
  • Recognize ideas on how to address challenges including managing retirements, hiring to the hybrid teaching model, and answering the call for workforce need
  • Identify how to offer HR services that assist faculty and staff with change management

Speakers:

Who should attend
This webinar is designed for academic administrators, particularly in the HR, provost, and business offices.
