HR Burnout - It Really Is A Thing

The life of a HR professional has always been stressful but never more so than in the past two years. From managing essential workforces, to virtual work arrangements, to integrating social justice concerns into business life, to addressing the talent crisis, there seems to be an unending wave of challenges confronting CHRO’s and their teams. But, as they care for their organizations, who is caring for them.

At our April HREA meeting, we will hear from three area CHRO’s managing the real challenge of HR burnout for both their teams and for themselves. Through this interactive, facilitated discussion, we hope you will leave our session with learnings you can apply to preserve the health of your colleagues and your organizations:

Veronica Hawkins, PhD - Vice President, Human Resources – Nixon Medical
Don Hurford – Vice President, Human Resources– Parkway Corporation
Sebnem Kesen – Vice President of Human Resources – Berwind Corporation


From Our Members

“As a Human Resource professional, you are invited to a number of seminars and networking events. The challenge is finding those that provide the best opportunity for professional development, exchanging best practices and engaging in high quality networking with peers. After attending the Human Resources Executive Alliance event, I can tell you that they have it mastered. Having the opportunity to hear first hand perspectives from the CEO of one the largest healthcare systems in the region was priceless. The HREA is the premiere networking alliance for Human Resources."
