On November 15th, 2019 Team SHRM-Atlanta members partnered with Back on My Feet to facilitate a Workforce Development workshop, “How to Keep a Job” for 15 of their members. Key themes and best practices shared were around Communication, Conflict Resolution, Time Management and Personal Branding. Attendees were excited to share the ways that they will be able to leverage their key learnings to thrive in their careers.
Thank you to SHRM-Atlanta member Kiley Buckner for introducing us to Back on My Feet. We appreciate you Heather Turton for your leadership and many thanks to Craig Southern and Tanzania Wiles for volunteering and sharing your wisdom with the attendees.
Being a part of “Team SHRM-Atlanta” allows our members the opportunity to share our HR knowledge and expertise with others in order to have a positive impact on their careers and lives.
We look forward to our continued partnership with Back on My Feet in 2020!
Back on My Feet (BoMF) is a national nonprofit that combats homelessness by using the power of running, community support, and essential employment and housing resources. Our unique running-based model demonstrates that if you first restore confidence, strength, and self-esteem, individuals are better equipped to tackle the road ahead and move toward jobs, homes, and new lives. Our success is measured not only by the health impact of miles run, but also by how many individuals obtain education, employment, and housing. Over 70% of our members successfully move their lives forward through employment, education, or housing which translates to more than 7,000 jobs and homes. BoMF members enthusiastically strive to learn more and to prepare themselves for either returning to the workforce or improving their current position. Working with getting people transitioning out of homelessness a job may be different than when you were applying to work.
