Resources for churches and ministries are constantly growing and changing. It’s important to admit that you don’t know and can’t possibly know everything. Tim Foot and Cased Berry from Slingshot Group are joined by Louis Galucci from Missio Benefits to discuss the endless resources that are available to HR teams and how to utilize them best.
It’s important to be a student of human resources because the world is so often changing. Staying on top of new information, compliance issues, and laws will help you lead your team well. Resources like SHRM, HR Ministry Network and other websites will lend HR teams a helping hand in understanding the wide variety of topics they need to know. Community is also an incredible resource for support. Find like minded people in your position in your community to form groups to meet up, share stories, encourage one another, and help each other professionally. Even using tools like the Enneagram and other personality profiles can be an asset to your team in more ways than one!
