Hiring & Firing: How Do We Handle Personnel Challenges Faithfully?

Event details

In almost every workplace, you’ll encounter at least one of the following, either as the employer or employee:




Performance Improvement

Disciplinary Action

How these processes are handled and communicated can honor and dignify the people involved. It can also lead to deep hurt, shame, and anger that linger long past an employee’s time at your company.

As Christians, how can our faith shape critical personnel processes like hiring, firing, and performance improvement?  What’s the best way to communicate a hard decision or difficult information to individuals or teams?

Join us for a practical conversation with leaders whose experience navigating the stickier side of these situations can help guide us as we seek to create workplaces that both model professional excellence and honor the humanity of the people involved.

Individual Ticket

This ticket includes lunch.


Colorado Conversations are relational gatherings that focus on practical themes that integrate our faith and work.
