Most folks only get out to one and if lucky two conferences a year. Of course, the SHRM Annual each June is the granddaddy of them all and one that folks look forward to attending a year in advance. However, it’s not the only conference on the schedule and you have some great options to choose from, especially if you have an interest in one particular area of HR.
On August 2, @shrmnextchat chatted with special guests SHRM Foundation @SHRMFoundation, Globoforce Social Media Manager Mike Wood @MikeWoodTweets, Greg Stevens of The WorkHuman Institute (@workhuman) and Associate Professor at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business Christine Porath (@PorathC).
This #Nextchat was created by the SHRM Foundation's 2017 Summer Intern, Amanda Tinkleman.
Summer internships are meant to give students the experience they will need to be successful when they enter the workplace. The best internship programs are thoughtfully planned and managed. Employees should be given a mentor for guidance and the opportunity to work on challenging projects that will help them to develop new skills.
What motivates workers to seek a new job and what makes them want to stay? The answer is deceptively simple. Workers want companies to provide them with fair compensation and benefits, workplace perks and development opportunities that help advance their careers. In other words, invest in your employees and they will be invested in your firm.
If you’re like me, the week between Christmas and New Year’s is the most inspiring time to set goals for the coming year. Perhaps it’s the lull in activity, or that it’s cold outside, or that I see January 1st as a endued with special powers to turn me from chronic procrastinator to achiever; when I’ll magically have enough willpower to go for a brisk morning walk and then sit down to write for an hour every day.

When I saw the email about the SHRM / Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) Intern program, I was instantly transported to a time when I was looking for that real world experience that only an internship can provide. I was a full-time student working part-time as a hostess in a restaurant when I saw a posting for an HR Intern.
Implementing human capital strategy in any enterprise requires proficiency in business acumen.
A major cultural shift that has changed the way we work has also changed the way we learn at work. Workplace learning is now social, mobile, micro and on-demand.
New, more collaborative trends are driving innovation in learning technology as organizations place a higher priority on the integration of talent management and on learning to increase engagement and retention.
Are you looking for a way to prepare for the future?
Professional development is an essential part of any successful talent management strategy—and no one understands that better than human resources professionals. While developing employees within the organization is a must to ensure a competitive edge, HR professionals must also take care to nurture their own career growth and advancement.
Every day, we contemplate the best way in which to engage our employees and the metrics to determine the effective nature of the aforementioned.
Should we do a survey, pay for a study or ask an expert for their insight on Best Practices?
Breakthroughs can happen in an instant, or they can be the result of a long, difficult process. They show up in many different forms – a connection, an opportunity, a new idea – and then allow us to move forward with greater ease or clarity. Breakthroughs are those distinct moments when the answer becomes clear, the picture comes into sharper focus, and we get it.
