Congratulatoins Trish DiMarco on passing your exam and obtaining your SHRM-CP certification!!

The SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP are the human resources professional’s way to demonstrate application of the universal behavioral competencies and technical knowledge essential for effective HR job performance. Prove not only what you know—but how you can apply that knowledge on the job. These exams test both HR competencies and HR knowledge—and their application—to ensure an HR professional’s ability to demonstrate what they know, and what they can do with their knowledge in the variety of situations they encounter.

Are you a California employer with 5 or more employees? Do you employ minors?  If yes to both, as of 1/1/20 your human resources employees and frontline supervisors and managers are considered Mandated Reporters under the California Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Law. This means these employees must be provided appropriate training in child abuse and neglect identification and training in child abuse and neglect reporting.  

We have good news for you – there is a local non-profit in our area that provides this training for FREE – Pathways to Hope for Children.  They offer this training monthly.  Check it out to get your staff trained and meet these requirements. https://mcartpathways02102021.eventbrite.com.  The link is on Northstate facebook page as well.   

This will be the subject of our January 22, 2021 HR Coffee and Convo.
