I returned back to Orlando from Las Vegas almost three weeks ago, after attending the 2021 SHRM Annual Conference and Expo. Even though it was almost a month ago, it feels like just yesterday. It’s funny, normally I am more than ready to come back from Las Vegas after I’ve been there for a few days; it’s just not my favorite place to be. However, this time around, I had an amazing time.

I’m back! Time for blog number two! As I mentioned in “I Survived #SHRM19,” I had a lot to reflect on post-conference! I had almost four pages of thoughts and decided to turn this into a mini blog series. So, if you haven’t read the first one yet, please do so! But also, please enjoy my top seven takeaways from the different sessions I attended during the conference.

As a Paylocity user myself, it was an easy decision to select Paylocity as a vendor that I wanted to highlight prior to #SHRM19. Please enjoy this 2019 SHRM Annual Conference and Exposition interview with Alexis Knaack, Event Specialist, for Paylocity.

I have never been to California, but I will be going in 13 months when #SHRM20 hits San Diego! What’s on my to do list? Why, visiting the San Diego Zoo, of course! I’m disappointed that the pandas won’t be there during my visit, but I am excited to visit one of the best zoos in the United States, according to TripAdvisor and the Travel Channel.

This is a 2019 SHRM Annual Conference & Exposition interview with Marci Steiding, VP of Marketing & Communications for Beecher Carlson, a Brown & Brown Company.

Who is Brown & Brown? Tell us everything, just as you would someone approaching your booth and asking you this question at #SHRM19 in Las Vegas.
