Human Resources Group

The Human Resources Group provide groups of non-competing human resources personnel with an opportunity to freely exchange ideas, dissect problems, and discuss important issues with peers. They are an investment in you and your bank's bottom line.

 HOW DO THE Human Resources GROUPS WORK?

  • CBAI organizes the groups based on bank size and market to ensure that participants have as much in common as possible without being competitors. 
  • The groups remain small (no more than 12 participants). Because each participant must trust other Group members, no substitutes are permitted, unless by unanimous consent of remaining members. 
  • Other consultants from a variety of firms may be invited to address the group. This expertise would cost thousands of dollars if you had to pay for it on a “real-time” basis.
  • Groups meet quarterly on a date and at a location determined by the Group members.
  • Four to six issues are usually discussed at each session. Participants are contacted for agenda items approximately two weeks prior to each meeting
  • A manual based on Group topics is compiled.
  • CBAI is responsible for correspondence, meeting details, some speaker resources, and other expertise.
