#Nextchat: SHRM Advocacy – At the Intersection of Work, Workers and Workplace #SHRMLeg


Now that the 116th Congress has settled in and is busy addressing important workplace issues, there is no better time to discuss SHRM’s public-policy priorities that are situated at the intersection of work, workers and the workplace! SHRM is focused on educating new and returning members of Congress on key policy priorities including workforce development, workplace equity, workplace immigration, and workplace flexibility and leave.

The 2019 SHRM Employment Law & Legislative Conference provides a unique opportunity for HR professionals to highlight these issues on Capitol Hill while also offering attendees the latest legal compliance updates! Whether you’re a first-timer or a veteran attendee, there will be something for everyone. This event offers sessions that dissect workplace policy at the federal and state levels, discussions with young professionals on their perspective of the workplace, conversations about best practices to recruit and retain individuals with a criminal background, and much more!

We are expecting more than 650 HR professionals from around the country in Washington, D.C., from March 18-20 at #SHRMLeg. This year we are excited to share with you an innovative new format. The conference will encompass six general sessions, over 25 interactive sessions led by thought leaders, and our popular Advocacy Day events. The conference will also provide attendees unique experiences with great networking events.

Join SHRM’s Government Affairs team at 3:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, March 13, for a #SHRMLeg #Nextchat! This pre-conference chat will gather #SHRMLeg registrants and HR public-policy devotees to discuss workplace policy issues, offer advocacy tips and provide must-attend session suggestions to make the most of your time in Washington, D.C.
