Southern Illinois Walk to Cure Arthritis

The Arthritis Foundation is focused on finding a cure and championing the fight against arthritis with life-changing information, advocacy, science and community. Leading the fight for the arthritis community, the Arthritis Foundation helps conquer everyday battles through life-changing information and resources, access to optimal care, advancements in science and community connections.

Our goal is to chart a winning course, guiding families in developing personalized plans for living a full life – and making each day another stride towards a cure. We also publish Arthritis Today, the award-winning magazine that reaches 4.2 million readers.

Walk to Cure Arthritis, the Arthritis Foundation’s national signature event, began in the 1990s. It has drawn thousands of participants in scores of communities every spring, primarily in May, as well as in the fall in some locations. So far this event has raised more than $100 million to help end the barriers the 50+ million Americans who are affected by arthritis face, including 300,000 children and their families. Another step, another victory.

HR Roundtable: Skype

Why should you join our HR Roundtable?

• These are for you: Your hot topics – not a seminar, not a webinar where we present to you and determine the agenda . . .

• There will be an HR consultant acting as facilitator (with hot topics in mind if needed) – This will be a way for you to network with other HR professionals

• This will be a great way for you to discuss your issues and work through them with your peers, a group of HR professionals

• If time allows, there will be team building ideas and exercises from the facilitator and the group!

• They are not formal – no listening to 60 or 90 minute presentations (although these have their place, just not here!)

• We will work with the group to secure the additional quarterly meetings.

• Examples of topics that could be discussed at the workshops: Best practices in training your employees; Getting and keeping the right talent; Employee handbooks – bring them for discussion; Your issues and questions
