Event Details

In back to school fashion, SRKA is offering a special educational session.  This extended session is in addition to our regular schedule so all attendees will be required to pay the meeting fee. 

Rob Lapota delivers a special session - Finance for the Non-Financial Manager

The session is designed for HR Professionals, explaining basic accounting practices to increase your competence in reading and interpreting accounting and financial reports.  Strengthen your conversations with leadership by grounding your ideas in financial data.

So you don’t have a degree in accounting. Maybe math wasn’t your best subject. But you know you’d be a more informed and influential professional if you could read and interpret basic financial reports. This one is for you. Don’t worry. It’s not a session that throws around acronyms and jargon that only a CPA could love.  It’s designed for HR professionals, explaining basic accounting practices to increase your competence in reading and interpreting accounting and financial reports. And, just as important, it will demonstrate how HR initiatives affect the organization's bottom line.

What You Will Learn:

·         Read and interpret financial statements.

·         Know your acid-test from a current ratio.

·         Identify HR’s impact on the bottom-line
