Business and HR Webinar Series



Consider the following:

• Do your employees understand the law and your company policies? Communicate “what not to do” before there is a problem.

• Do you have Illinois-compliant HR policies? Don’t wait for the boss to ask – get your answers now.

• Want to stay in compliance, reduce risk, and save money? Educate yourself and your managers.

• Are you doing everything you can to protect your company from an employment claim? Get the information you need now to make legally sound decisions.

It may not be easy to promote a safe work environment, comply with laws governing paid and unpaid leaves of absence, identify, investigate, and resolve harassment behavior and complaints, but IT IS THE LAW! We can help you stay in compliance and hopefully avoid lawsuits, fines and much more.

The Business Webinar Series are proven, affordable, convenient, Illinois-focused educational opportunities developed specifically for Illinois business owners, HR professionals, supervisors and managers. Hear it from our experts – at your desk. Learn HR fundamentals with these convenient web seminars. Enhance your HR skills conveniently and sharpen your knowledge about complex regulations right from your desktop – with these informative webinars taught every week by experienced attorneys from some of Illinois most prestigious law firms.

An added bonus, our HR webinars are approved for credit hours toward PHR and SPHR re-certification through the Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI). We are also offering CLEs for many of our webinars and seminars. We recently also became an Approved Provider for the American Payroll Association. Many of our wage and hour and payroll events offer RCH hours. And, just in, we are now a Preferred Provider for SHRM’s certification program and can provide professional development credits (PDCs) for many of our webinars and seminars.

If you don’t see a desired topic, please email your suggestions to or call 217-522-5512 ext 223. We are always looking for pertinent topics.

They are very informative of the latest changes taking place in Illinois; with that, many of the changes in our HR management operating system have been a result of the education you’re providing. It also helps that your presenters are energetic and knowledgeable.
