partnership has been formed between the Indiana University of Pennsylvania and
Indiana County Area chapters of the Society for Human Resource Management. Members of the IUP chapter have attended two meetings so far and heard
from two very interesting presenters.
The first presenter was Rick Etter, partner of
labor and employment at Fox Rothschild LLP. Rick presented “The Wage and Hour
Mistakes That Cost Employers Millions: Best Practices to Prevent a Class or
Collective Action Lawsuit.” Members in attendance found this topic very useful
in application to today’s changing workforce and economy.
The speaker for March was
Catherine Giunta, SHRM-SCP, SPHR, who is a professor at the school of
business at Seton Hill University. Giunta presented “Artificial
Intelligence: Impact on Employees and Customers. Should we love or fear AI?”
The members found this topic very engaging and important as they look at the
future of employment in the United States and the effect that artificial
intelligence has on our job markets.
Through this two-way
partnership, Eberly College of Business HR Management students have the
opportunity to attend monthly meetings with the Indiana County Area
professional chapter. These meetings provide the opportunity for Eberly
students to network with local HR professionals and develop meaningful
networking experiences and mentorship opportunities. The IUP chapter looks
forward to continuing and strengthening its partnership with ICASHRM.
“We look forward to continuing our two-way
partnership with ICASHRM as it provides Eberly College of Business Human
Resource Management students the opportunity to develop their professional
business acumen while networking with local HR professionals in the community,”
said Jason Wendel, president of IUP SHRM.
