Registration Open for MHA Human Resources Member Forum

The MHA will host an in-person Human Resources Member Forum at the MHA Headquarters in Okemos from 8:30 a.m. to noon April 26, with a virtual option available as well.

The forum is structured as a round table with human resources and MHA leaders moderating a discussion among attendees around the Great Resignation of the healthcare workforce and ideas and solutions to combat workforce challenges.

Speakers for the forum include Michigan human resources leaders Patrick Irwin, vice president, human resources, South Market, Henry Ford Hospital; and Mary Rosser, MA, SHRM-SCP, chief human resources officer, Trinity Health Saint Mary’s; and Mary Sand, Ph.D., Sand Consulting, LLC.

Irwin and Rosser will first explore topics related to workforce safety and pipeline development, such as approaches to invite employees at all levels to help plan the future workforce, developing strategies for diverse candidate pools, boosting the capacity to prevent and curtail violence against staff and implementing wellbeing programs. The forum will conclude with a keynote presentation from Sand on human resources professionals identifying their blind spots.

The forum is free of charge and open only to MHA member organizations. Registration for both in-person and virtual attendees will close April 19.

Members with questions about membership or registration should contact Brenda Carr at the MHA.
