     Bryant & Stratton College Online Hosts Free Webinar For
                Students Interested in HR Careers
          Webinar will be held on May 23 and will provide an overview of what types of
            careers students can pursue with their online human resources degrees

BUFFALO, NY (May 14, 2012) – Bryant & Stratton College Online, a leader in online
associate’s degree programs, will host a free webinar for current students enrolled in a
human resources degree online or those who are interested in exploring a career in human
resources. The webinar, titled “What Does an HR Department Do Exactly?” will be held on
Wednesday, May 23, from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. EDT. The webinar will cover the wide variety
of functions conducted by a human resources department.

Bryant & Stratton College Online Instructor Andrew Beyer will lead the webinar. Mr. Beyer
has over 15 years of experience in the field of human resources and has served in both the
private and retail sectors.

“Human resources is an exciting, dynamic field in which professionals have the opportunity
to take on many roles. The assumption is that HR professionals are in an office only to
enforce dress codes, celebrate birthdays and process hiring paperwork, but they do much,
much more,” said Beyer. “An HR department can impact a businesses goals and direction
significantly because it is an integral part of operations. This webinar will highlight the many
hats HR professionals have to wear and provide insight into the career as a whole.”

The webinar will cover topics such as: employment & recruiting, training & development,
compensation, benefits, employee services, employee & community relations, personnel
records, health & safety, and strategic planning. More specifically, Mr. Beyer will address HR
issues like productivity enhancement, incentive pay, profit sharing, outplacement services,
health & wellness and more. For current students the overview will provide a look at what to
expect in a human resources career and give a general background of the field for students
interested in enrolling in human resources courses online.

Current and prospective students interested in learning more about a career in HR are

those unable to attend, a recorded version of the webinar as well as highlights from the
