July Networking Event

Tuesday, July 10, 2018 Newcastle Country Club


LWHRA mixed it up this month with an evening event at the beautiful Newcastle Country Club, a choice so popular that we sold out! More than 60 members and guests attended, spending an enjoyable happy hour networking and mingling. Here are some thoughts from attendees:

“My first networking event—everyone was so friendly and down-to-earth. I spoke to more people than I was expecting. I’m so glad I attended.”

LWHRA Scholarship Testimonial

In March of this year, LWHRA awarded a $150 scholarship to Francisca Bravo.  We want to congratulate Francisca on completing her certification and wish her continued success in the field of HR! 


Name: Francisca Bravo
Certification: HR Analytics Lead (May 2018)
Testimonial: “I successfully completed an HR Analytics Lead Certification, thanks to the support from LWHRA, which provided me a scholarship to attain this goal. I participated in the LWHRA 2018 Symposium, and one of the things that I learned is that HR needs to make decisions based on data. This course gave me the skills to have a solid knowledge about it. With this certification as an HR professional, I will have the possibility to provide a stronger support to decision makers, by providing insights to make better people decisions. I really appreciate the great help provided by LWHRA!”

SHRM Spotlight

Welcome, Generation Z: Here's Your Benefits Package

"Move over, Millennials. The earliest members of Generation Z, born in 1995 or later, are entering the workforce.

Employers have spent the past several years trying to understand and design employee benefits programs that will entice and motivate the Millennial generation, born from roughly 1980 through 1994. But now, as members of Generation Z graduate from college, employers will need to provide the support, freedom, and flexibility these younger workers seek."
