Some tips and stories from #SHRM19Blogger Paula Harvey.
At the #SHRM18 conference I wandered around the exposition hall and spoke with many of the exhibitors. I specifically asked several of them if they were willing to share why their company is a great place to work. Kronos is one that took me up on the challenge and the following is what I learned:
I’ve known Lyle Hanna for most of the 20 years that I have been a card-carrying SHRM member. He has been such an inspiration to me, especially for his volunteer work with the SHRM Foundation. Lyle has had a long glorious career in Human Resources that spans almost 40 years. He must have been a teenager when he started in HR!
I had the privilege of chatting with Mike Shetterly of Ogletree Deakins law firm, who I have known for over 10 years, about his upcoming two presentations at #SHRM18.
18 Years!!! Yes, I can say that I am attending my 18th SHRM Conference in a row. So does this mean I am now a SHRM adult or something? Maybe it really says that I truly value the friendships that I have built and the experiences that I have received by attending the annual conference.
Unfortunately weather disasters happen sometimes too often. Having just lived through Hurricane Harvey, I want to share my Top 10 List of employer hurricane related advice.
1. Be prepared! As a lifetime girl scout this has always been my motto. Ensure your team knows their responsibilities before, during and after the disaster. All your team will need to do is execute.
When I first heard mid last week that Hurricane Harvey was headed directly to the Houston area, all I could think was why they had to name it with my surname. Why, oh, why??? Well at least now no one will misspell it anymore.
Immediately my management team and I started talking about how we were going to prepare for it.
