    SHRM Learning Objective: family caregivers in the workforce

    Family caregiving is an issue that affects the vast majority of Americans
    in some way. Most fall into one of these categories: they are caregivers
    now, have been in the past, will be in the future or will need care
    themselves, (source, AARP). As our population ages, the demands on family
    caregivers only increase and impact all workplaces. What can employers do to
    address these issues?

    Participants will leave with strategies for recognizing and supporting
    employees’ needs, and tips for improving productivity and fostering a stable
    and healthy workforce. The speakers each bring a unique perspective to the
    conversation: Tiffany Speas is a professional in the Aging field and a
    caregiver for her grandmother. Anne-Lise Gere, SPHR through her HR
    consulting work with Senior Care companies across the country, has developed
    a keen expertise in the field of senior care and aging in place.

    Speaker: Anne-lise gere and tiffany speas

    Speaker Bio:

    Tiffany Speas, MSM
    CFO, PAA

    Tiffany Speas, MSM has an amazing job! Everyday she works with dedicated
    professionals to improve the lives of seniors in our communities. She does
    all the things a CFO does like strategize, analyze, and practice
    participative management. She’s also blessed with the opportunity to lead
    the areas of Finance, Business Planning, Budgeting and Human Resources. All
    of those things are exciting and interesting, but she thinks the best part
    of her role as CFO is that at the end of every day she goes home and shares
    with her family how much of a difference they made in people's lives through
    PAA’s programs and services. What could be better than that?
