C2HR CONference Shifts to Virtual Venue

Out of immense concern for your safety, well-being and the tremendous work demands you face, C2HR is pivoting the 2020 C2HR CONference to a virtual event. Mark your calendar and plan to join us on November 10-17 for educational sessions, networking, learning labs and interactive discussions developed exclusively for HR professionals in the content and connectivity industry. 



Insight into AMC Networks’ Family-Friendly Culture

From generous maternity and paternity leave to backup childcare, eldercare resources, a robust Employee Assistance Program (EAP) and active Parent and Caregiver Employee Resource Group (PACE), Jennifer Dunn, SVP, People & Culture and C2HR Board Member, shares how AMC Networks has cultivated a culture to help employees achieve a better balance between work and family life. 



DEI Takes Center Stage

The social movement that was prompted by George Floyd’s murder has given all of us an opportunity to re-evaluate our organization's diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) efforts with a fresh set of eyes (and ears!). C2HR has compiled several thought-provoking articles on DEI in our Knowledge Center.



The Re-Entry Journey Webinars on Demand

Last month, C2HR hosted a series of webinars focused on efforts how companies are ensuring the safety and well-being of employees throughout the pandemic. Topics included strategies for the return to the workplace, virtual recruiting, employment law and rethinking workplace design. If you weren’t able to participate in the webinars in person, you can view the presentation decks and/or the webinars on our website.
