Office MVP’s Spotlight Series: John Hagen


It is my honor and privilege to introduce our next Office MVPs Spotlight guest, Mr. John Hagen.

John has graciously accepted our invitation to present HR training courses on topics which include; HR leadership, employee engagement, culture, Human Resources, Employee and Labor Relations, knowledge and education.  John will speak from both sides of the table, as an HR leader and expert from the employee advocate perspective.

John’s insight will not only enlighten you, but offer the most valuable information that employees are not getting, understanding or utilizing to their full benefit.  Do you know what your FMLA, MLOA, sick leave or employee rights are?  Don’t get left in the dark, when you need to know the legal rights to your benefits.

These are virtual webinar training seminars you will not want to miss.  Training Dates and times to be announced.  During the interim, please tell us what you would like to learn about, obtain more information on or train to do.  We encourage all to share their thoughts, concerns and observations in the Human Resource realm that can be addressed through the virtual webinars.
