Many employers feel healthcare costs are out of control, but you can control a lot more than you think. Come learn how employers with 25 or more employees are taking charge of what they can control and getting a greater degree of confidence in predicting their next renewal, which enormously helps in the budgeting process. The HR Professional who is a master of managing healthcare costs will be a hero to their CFO and CEO.

Dear Boulder Area Human Resource Association Members,

As human resource professionals, we are all being challenged with unprecedented human resource issues of immense magnitude. On behalf of the Boulder Area Human Resource Association (BAHRA), our hearts go out to all who have been affected by the COVID-19 coronavirus. You are at the frontline of this pandemic as a human resource professional. You are being asked to adapt to your company’s changing needs on a daily basis, while trying to care for your own loved ones, let alone yourself. We value your membership and care about your well-being.

The safety of our human resource community is of utmost importance. We want to make sure you have the information you need to be informed.

We would like you to take advantage of the daily information from the following reliable sources on human resources that can be found in your HR360 Membership, as well as directly on the SHRM website at
For those of you who want information about Covid-19 the best source (and the one that all other levels of government are referring to) is the CDC website which you can access

Finally, we will keep you updated with additional information on our virtual programs within the next week. Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any ideas, concerns or questions about BAHRA at [email protected]
