The recent recession caused employers to experience record unemployment cost increases of 50 percent to more than 100 percent. At the upcoming 2011 SHRM HR Florida Conference & Expo, TALX industry experts will discuss the recession’s impact on unemployment costs. During “Minimizing Unemployment Costs in 2011 and Beyond,” Michael Mohr, vice president, and Matthew White, director of Tax Services, of TALX will examine the long-term impact of unemployment expenses to employers, discuss economic indicators and review planning strategies to assist with rising unemployment costs. This session will provide participants with actionable tips to help mitigate risk, leverage planning techniques and minimize costs within individual organizations. Attendees will gain a clearer understanding of specific topics related to unemployment costs including: federal Title XII loan balances, potential federal unemployment tax increases and
the long term impact of these costs over the next several years.

TALX will also provide additional industry expertise at the upcoming 2011 SHRM Indiana State Conference. During “Assessments for Employee Selection and Development,” Jocelyn Courtney-Hays, manager of Talent Measurement for pan, a TALX company, will discuss how assessments can enhance employee selection processes leading to improved quality of hire, efficient applicant pool management, and decreased counterproductive behaviors and turnover. This session will examine how assessments can support employee development and succession planning by providing information about an individual’s strengths and development opportunities. Attendees will learn how to ensure a significant return on investment by conducting thorough analyses, selecting appropriate assessments, and implementing assessments in a systematic manner.

Both the Indiana and Florida 2011 SHRM HR State Conferences will take place from Monday, August 29 through Wednesday, August 31, 2011 in their respective states.
