Every organization wants to be a best place to work. But what does it take to get there? Fortune writes, “A great place to work is one where employees trust the people they work with, have pride in the work they do, and enjoy the people they work with … and these same qualities—trust, pride, and camaraderie—also fuel business performance.”
To give you a peek behind the scenes, I've conducted some interviews with SHRM colleagues who work so diligently to create an amazing conference experience.
I am excited to shine a spotlight on Vanessa Hill from the SHRM Media Affairs team.

The #SHRM18 Bloggers have already produced some excellent Q & A posts with many of the 2018 SHRM Annual Conference & Exposition speakers and vendors. To give you a peek behind the scenes, I've conducted some interviews with SHRM colleagues who work so diligently to create an amazing conference experience.
Rapid advancements in workplace technology have positively impacted how, when and where work gets done. However, if not properly designed and implemented, this same technology can create additional burdens that impact hiring, hinder efficiency and make employees less productive.
I was so excited when Jackie Oliver agreed to do a Q & A with me for the SHRM18 Blog. I met Jackie when I first landed at SHRM in 2005 and we worked together for two years before I transferred to Public Affairs. Jackie is an unsung hero at SHRM. She is one of the hardest working, kindest, smartest, most dependable and most caring individuals at SHRM. She is a role model and one of the reasons SHRM continues to be a great place to work. If you see things working well on the outside, it’s because Jackie is making it all happen behind the scenes on the inside. Period.
It can be difficult for a 25-year-old to envision life after age 65, let alone to start saving for it—and many of your employees aren’t even sure how or where to start saving. That’s why it’s important for employers to take an active role in educating employees about the benefits of retirement savings plans.
