During this all-day webinar event, attendees will learn about important trends impacting the HR landscape and the best practices to ensure compliance in an increasing regulatory environment.

The challenges for HR professionals are numerous, especially for those at small and medium-sized businesses. From contending with new regulations impacting the business landscape to improving employee performance and continually enhancing HR operations to meet evolving organizational needs, today's HR professionals face a wealth of obstacles that will only grow in 2016. Paycor's HR & Compliance Web Summit is designed to help HR professionals understand these changes and challenges, learn what they can do to improve and set themselves up for continued success in the year ahead.

The summit includes six distinct webinar sessions, led by some of the foremost experts in HR, training and development, and labor regulations. The individual sessions include:

  • Improving Team Performance with Data-driven Decisions (9:00 a.m. EST): In today's workplace, it is imperative that managers understand their employees' motivational needs and drivers to create a dynamic team for optimal business success.
