Greenwood SC Chamber of Commerce will hold its 6th annual Greenwood Regional Management Conference on Thursday, February 20th with the theme of creating “The Greatest Workplace on Earth.”  The conference is presented by Piedmont Technical College and Lonza.

“Five Generations At Work: Recruiting and Retaining Talent From Every Generation” will be the keynote topic presented by Dr. Rebecca Battle-Bryant, Ph.D., SHRM-CP, president and owner of Battle Plan Consulting, LLC, a full-service human resource and workforce development consulting firm specializing in human resource management and employee development solutions.

The Conference is aimed at providing relevant information to employees to shield them from legal pitfalls and leadership shortcomings. The Conference will feature breakout sessions on timely, relevant and practical training in basic employment law, employee relations issues and critical leadership skills. 

Additionally, the morning session will feature an employment law briefing by attorney D. Randle Moody, II, Principal of the Greenville office of Jackson Lewis P.C.  Employment litigation and competition law are two of his specialty areas.  He often works with clients regarding proactive prevention strategies to avoid litigation and has tried cases and handled appeals in federal and state courts throughout the country.

The conference has been designed by members of the Chamber’s Human Resources Roundtable to assist supervisors, managers and business owners of all sizes navigate the ever-changing workplace landscape with confidence and competence and in the most effective way possible.  The Roundtable strives to provide leadership to the community’s industry leaders through education, research, and best practices.
