I’m here at the National SHRM Conference in Atlanta visiting with some of our outstanding HR friends and professionals whom we’ve met throughout the years.
This conference is a “must do” at some point in every HR professional’s career. The scale of the exhibit hall alone is a major attraction unto itself….Seems as nearly all the national vendors from payroll companies to niche recruiting firms have a presence of some sort and it’s easy to identify the new wave of HR business solutions being offered.
As for the educational sessions–and there is a large menu–“social media” is common theme….How to understand the potential of social media for all sorts of HR applications from talent identifcation to employment branding to employee retention strategies is very much at the forefront of these sessions.
As strategic Orlando, Florida, Human Resources consultants and business advisors, our readers know how much we value continuing education to stay current to deliver the best in best HR practices back to our clients throughout Central Florida.
For those of you in HR World, in the event you haven’t been to a National SHRM Conference lately make it a commitment to attend one of these gatherings sooner rather than later.
