ASE’s annual Human Resources conferences on March 5 will address opportunities and issues in the modern workplace

Livonia, Mich. —March 3, 2015 — The American Society of Employers (ASE), one of the nation’s oldest and largest employer associations, will hold its 12th annual People, Profit, Progress conference on Thursday, March 5 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi. With more than 300 attendees registered, it is one of the region’s largest Human Resources conferences. ASE CEO Mary Corrado notes that HR practitioners are eager to stay on top of trends and best practices that help attract, motivate and retain employees in today’s rapidly evolving workplace.

“This year’s speakers are focused on both traditional HR topics such as employment law compliance, internships and supervision techniques, as well as emerging issues in the workplace including collaborating effectively across cultures, using corporate culture as a catalyst for innovation, and best practices for recruiting veterans and people with disabilities,” Corrado said. “Increasingly, corporate leaders and boards are looking to HR departments to address and resolve some of the most challenging issues ever presented in the modern workplace. HR pros are responding in kind, seeking knowledge and counsel from the country’s top HR advisors and practitioners.”

Keynote speakers are Greg McKeown, CEO of THIS, Inc. and the New York Times bestselling author of Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less, and John O’Leary, President of Rising Above and the survivor of a horrific fire resulting in burns over 98% of his body. O’Leary will speak on empowering individuals to take back their lives, ignite their possibilities and change their world. McKeown will speak on challenging core assumptions about achievement to get to the essence of what really drives success.
