McHENRY – Stateline SHRM will host a breakfast program titled “Breaking Barriers: HR’s Role in Supporting the McHenry County Community Needs.”

The program is presented by the Stateline SHRM Workforce Readiness Committee, the McHenry County Workforce Network, McHenry County Specialty Courts and Carlos Arevalo, partner with Zukowski, Rogers, Flood & McArdle in Crystal Lake.

The Stateline SHRM Workforce Readiness Initiative was formed in 2012 to boost support, raise awareness and increase opportunities for special populations in McHenry County that often are highly stigmatized and overlooked in the workforce.

In this session, participants will explore why human resources should care, the impact of stigma, human resources fears and liability issues, legal realities and real stories with real people and real needs.

The program is pending approval for 1.25 recertification credit hours toward PHR, SPHR and GPHR recertification through the HR Certification Institute.  

The meeting will be from 7:45 to 9:45 a.m. at the McHenry County Shah Center, 4100 W. Shamrock Lane, McHenry. It is $15 for members and $30 for nonmembers, payable by cash or check at the door.

Credit card payments and registration can be made online by Aug. 11 at
