With an ever changing economic environment and workforce, businesses need to reevaluate how they manage and support their employees. Join NCW Insurance and Estacar Companies Thursday, June 15th for a FREE Seminar at the Amarillo College Downtown Campus Auditorium.

NCW Insurance and Estacar Companies invite business owners, human resource professionals and office/hiring managers to attend a FREE Seminar, Thursday, June 15th at the Amarillo College, Downtown Campus – Auditorium, located at 1314 S Polk St in Amarillo, Texas. This Seminar will feature two sessions, the morning session from 8am to noon and the afternoon from 1pm to 5pm.

With the addition of millennials into the workforce, businesses need to reevaluate how they manage and support their employees. This change has brought with it the belief that "human resources" is an outdated term which should be replaced with "talent management." But, what some fail to grasp is that true talent management is a revitalization and extension of HR roles, and that HR's core functions remain necessary for business success.

While talent-management programs may meet the varied expectations of a multigenerational business environment, HR operations must not be ignored. Mismanagement of these systems places you at risk of legal penalties and exposure to hidden costs that can damage your company’s reputation and profitability.

We have also found that the cost of employee turnover alone ranges from about 16 percent for an hourly, unskilled worker to as much as 213 percent for a skilled, highly trained employee. As risk advisors and strategic partners, NCW and Estacar feel compelled to bring resources and experts to our clients and community to address these challenges.

From pre-hire to separation and everything in-between, missteps in hiring and management creates risk for a business. Our presenter, Michele McCarter is a certified, degreed Senior Human Resource Consultant with 16 years' experience in her field. She has specialized in compliance for the last five years. Michele is constantly reviewing regulatory changes and trends to keep our clients updated. Michelle will review and address the following areas of human resources and management in detail during this conference:

Pre-Hire Stage





 Hiring Process


Conditional Offer


Employee Documentation

 Leave of Absence & Return to Work

Leave of absence – FMLA & Non-FMLA

Injuries: Work and Non-Work Related
