Printing Industries Alliance holds regular programs for owners, managers, HR managers and supervisors on a variety of topics. All programs are practical and hands-on. Printing Industries Alliance also holds an annual Human Resource Conference featuring nationally-recognized speakers on the latest laws, regulations, and compliance challenges. The conference provides you with the opportunity to have our expert presenters assist you with your human resource situations. Network with others who face the same challenges on a daily basis.
The PIA Human Resources Conference is designed to empower participants with proven compliance strategies for meeting their biggest HR challenges. With the increasingly regulated and litigious workplace of today, it is even more important for your company to stay on top of current HR issues. Time and resources spent at the Conference learning about today’s critical HR issues and networking with other HR professionals will pay off later in helping you deal more effectively with issues as they come up during the year.

PIA conducts regular wage, salary and benefit surveys. These detailed publications are invaluable for benchmarking your firm against industry standards.
Additionally, members regularly request “custom surveys”, generally when looking for a wage rate in a particular geographic area, how members are handling time off around a particular holiday or how other companies might deal with a particular situation.
It’s easy, quick and free for members. Click here to download this year's PIA Wage & Benefit Survey Questionnaire for Management and Production Employees. Click here to complete the survey online, password is required. Deadline to participate is July 17, 2015.
