Opportunities to Get Involved!

Upcoming Panel Discussion Webinar

The CUPA-HR MI Chapter has an upcoming event on the afternoon of February 16, 2021 sponsored by PageUp about how work will change in the wake of COVID-19. This will be a panel discussion where we will discuss topics such as:

  • Telecommuting policies and a change in strategy
  • New technology costs and policy considerations
  • Recruitment activities that employers can do to be a relevant employer of choice even though they are not hiring.

The three panel members will come from a large University or college, a small to medium University or College and a Community College. Panel member selection review is underway!
