What is the Human Resources & Risk and Safety Executive Study Group?

We are the power behind the plate, the quiet forces behind our businesses' success: restaurant human resources officers who attract and develop talent needed to grow profitability, and risk and safety officers who safeguard our companies from stubborn and emerging threats. We come from some of the nation's most prominent restaurant companies -- colleagues who face the same challenges and are looking to share on-target, specialized experiences.

Whether you need new training tactics or information about employee benefits, regulations, smarter coverage or risk reduction, this group is your window into what fellow restaurant industry leaders are doing and which strategies work best.

When does the Human Resources & Risk and Safety Executive Study Group meet?

The next conference will be February 12-14, 2020 in Dallas, TX. Stay tuned for details! Learn more about the 2019 meeting.

Do members of the group engage outside of the meetings?

Yes. We offer webinars and year-round learning opportunities. You can also join our email discussion groups (Listservs) to ask colleagues questions, share news, and contribute to discussions on issues in the HR and risk and safety fields. To be eligible, you must work full-time in the field of human resources or risk and safety for a company that is a member of the National Restaurant Association. Learn more about the Listserv.
