What do pornographic website designers, knife-wielding employees, and sexually harassing managers have in common?
And Other Duties as Assigned is a compelling comedy/drama that demonstrates the frustrations and challenges faced by HR professionals today, and will serve as the opening keynote for the KYSHRM Conference on Tuesday, August 29. Karen, played by LSHRM President-Elect Patricia Williams, is beginning her journey as an HR leader, and wonders if HR is a role where she can make a difference and have impact.
Through a series of encounters with misguided supervisors, challenging employees, and dysfunctional policies, Karen understands how she adds value to the organization and to the lives of her employees.
Facilitated discussions following the drama allow participants to share perspectives and discuss how HR can take their seat at the table and become valued leaders and trusted advisors.
The playwright is HR professional Cathy Fyock, SPHR, SHRM-SCP, who directs the KYSHRM cast members in this one-act play.
