Now in its 36th year, FDR Training is known throughout the federal community as a trusted and respected source for high-quality professional training for federal HR, EEO, diversity, employee/labor relations and ADR practitioners and attorneys.
We seek presentation proposals that provide training on federal workplace issues with a focus on the tools necessary to limit complaints and grievances before the EEOC, MSPB, FLRA and the courts. Presentations should be educational, informative and interactive; meet clearly defined learning objectives, which you must include in your proposal; and provide the attendee with useful takeaways.
Eligible speakers include senior-level HR, ER and LR professionals, EEO and ADR practitioners in federal agencies, employment/labor attorneys who service the federal government, and recognized subject-matter experts in HR, EEO, ER, LR, and ADR as they apply to the federal workplace.
Examples of relevant topics include challenges for the federal workforce in 2021 and beyond, discrimination, harassment, retaliation, the EEO process, EEO best practices, disability compliance management, discipline, whistleblowing, adverse actions, ER and LR best practices, human capital management, prohibited personnel practices, labor and management relations, negotiability, arbitration, hearings, communication, problem-solving, coaching, ADR best practices, leave, absence management, pay and benefits, and legal developments.
Each session should have three clearly described takeaways, with practical solutions that can be immediately implemented when attendees return to the office.
FDR Training 2021 is scheduled to be held at the Orlando World Center Marriott from August 16th through 19th. Depending on the national situation relevant at that time, FDR Training planners may elect to hold FDR as a virtual event. Speakers will be notified of the final decision as soon as practicable.
