COLUMBUS, Ohio, April 19, 2018– Heating, Air-conditioning & Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI) has concluded its inaugural HR Workshop with overwhelmingly positive results. This was a two-day event from April 18-19 at the HARDI headquarters in Columbus, Ohio.


The workshop led by Pam Krivda, who facilitates HARDI’s HR Consulting program, covered a wide range of topics including discipline and documentation, non-harassment, and the various legal aspects of human resources.


“HARDI members have a lot of talented individuals covering the HR side of business,” said Krivda. “This group was very engaged and solution-minded when it came to their questions. It was my pleasure to share insights from my experience with them, and I look forward to continuing to work with HARDI members through the consulting program and future workshops.”



Krivda is also a practicing labor law attorney, and her experience with legal issues proved valuable to workshop attendees.


“This workshop was very informative,” said Tina Ginn of The Corken Steel Products Company. “I’ve been in the HR field for a long time, and there was still a lot of information I learned. Pam’s law background helped give color to a lot of issues and answers she gave to our questions.”


“This was actually the best workshop I have ever been to,” said Dee Sharkey of Johnstone Supply, The Ware Group. “Pam had such a wealth of knowledge and was very engaged and patient with the entire class.”
