If you’re like most HR pros, you’re not only forced to be scrappy, you wear the label like a badge of honor. Even if your company is big, your team is likely tiny, which means you sometimes need to get extra-creative to provide your employees with the support they need. But when you’re super-strapped for time and money (you know, all the time) it can be tough to come up with great ideas and workarounds on the fly.

Lucky for you, HR expert Tim Sackett is here to do some of the heavy lifting for you -- and to share his favorite strategy, benefits communication, and administrative hacks for small but mighty HR teams. Specifically, you’ll learn:

  • How and why to devise a benefits communication strategy long before it’s time to start communicating your benefits at open enrollment.
  • 9 hacks for squeezing the most out of the communications budget you have and thinking outside the box when it comes to ways to engage your audience.
  • Proven strategies for asking the people holding the purse strings for extra HR money -- and more!
