The HR Department of One Round Table group is comprised of HR practitioners who are solely responsible for the HR function within their organization.  Attendees discuss the unique issues and challenges associated with being an "HR department of one". If you are struggling with an HR problem or considering an HR initiative, others in the group most likely have direct or indirect experience in those areas.  This group offers an opportunity to network and share best practices with other DallasHR members facing the issues and challenges that are unique to yours.
