Phoenix, AZ, January 10, 2017:  Daniel M. Isard, MSFS, President of The Foresight Companies, LLC, the nation’s leading financial and management consulting firm serving funeral homes and cemeteries throughout North America, announced today the dates for Human Resource Spring Training Seminar. The seminar will be held March 22 and 23 in Phoenix, AZ.

“The single largest cost of operating a funeral home or cemetery is staffing.  Yet, no one has trained business owners and managers on what the rules are to manage their staff,” says Dan Isard.   He continues to state, “If you think good employees are expensive you should see how much bad ones will cost you.”  This two-day seminar will provide attendees everything they need to know and have for implementation as a Human Resource director.  During this two-day workshop, they will learn “what to do”, “how to do it” and most importantly “what not to do”.  Attendees will create all their key Human Resource management documents during our 16 hours of seminar instruction.

The HR Spring Training Seminar will feature The Foresight Companies Human Resources expert Stephanie Ramsey.  Stephanie has been featured in The Director, The American Funeral Director, The Independent and the ICCFA Magazines.  She is also a popular speaker on Human Resource subjects at the NFDA and ICCFA annual conventions.   “Dealing with employee issues is one of the most challenging aspects of operating a funeral business, the right tools make these issues manageable,” states Ms. Ramsey.

Participants will leave this seminar with ready to implement (subject to state law) Employee Manual, Procedure Manual, Hiring Letter, Firing/Termination Letter, Annual Review Form, Job Description, Confidentiality/Non-disclosure letter, consensual relationship agreement, and motor vehicle accident reporting form.  This will also give them the opportunity to receive our special HR updates and access to The Foresight Forecast which is our new informational site with business blogs, videos, mini seminars and webinars posted weekly.  “Staffing is the number one cost in running your funeral home.  Why not do it right?” concludes Isard. 

The seminar will take place in Phoenix Arizona at the Foresight Companies office.  It will begin with a welcoming cocktail party on Wednesday evening, March 22 and run through Friday March 23, 2017.  For information on registration visit www.theforesightcompanies.com or contact Catherine Belliveau at the Foresight office by calling 800-426-0165 or email catherine@theforesightcompanies.com.

Funeral Homes are Struggling to Keep Their Doors Open

Ryan Thogmartin - August 13, 2017

This is a topic and conversation that does not get talked about or covered enough. We all want to put the blame on cremation and ignore the fact that many of the issues facing funeral homes aren't because families choose cremation but because of bad business decisions of many funeral directors who don't want to change or accept cremation.
