HR Management in a Community Bank

Michigan Bankers Association

9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Managing the Human Resources function in a community bank requires you to wear many hats. Unlike your counterparts in  larger financial institutions who may specialize in one particular function, you must do it all, including recruitment, training, wage and salary administration, benefit plan design and administration, incentive compensation, and employee retention and succession planning, and you must do it all within the myriad of state and federal laws regulating the employment relationship.

This seminar will provide you with a better understanding of the legal and practical issues associated with managing the overall Human Resources function and will provide you with practical solutions that you can bring back to your bank. Specific topics include:
  • A review of significant recent legal developments and what they mean for Human Resources professionals;
  • Social media – legal issues involving social media as a recruiting tool, monitoring employees and the latest from the NLRB on lawful social media policies;
  • Legal issues relating to talent management: recruitment, training, leadership development and succession planning;
  • Health & Welfare Update:  the future of Health Care Reform and other issues you need to know about;
  • ERISA Fee Litigation, the New Fee Disclosure Rules and the allocation of revenue sharing and plan expenses in 401(k) plans;
  • Deferred compensation and Employee Stock Ownership Plans for Community Banks

Who Should Attend:

Training Officers, Human Resources Directors, and any managing personnel
