One of the things I get excited about as a conference blogger is the chance to chat with some of the speakers ahead of the event. I pick different speakers every year to, wait for it…, expand my world! Okay, that was a cheesy set-up to spotlight the theme, let me move on!
I had a chance to speak with Michael Wilkinson, founder and Managing Director of Leadership Strategies, Inc. We talked about how HR pros can become better facilitators and Michael shared great advice on how to "divide and conquer" a conference like SHRM18.
Joe Rotella has been a SHRM Annual Conference mainstay for a number of years. He is a warm and engaging speaker who never fails to both inform and entertain. While his previous sessions have focused on HR technology, this year he is helping HR professionals become better business partners. He shares his insights and more below.
As a U.S. Navy Veteran, I’m extremely proud of the time I served on Active Duty and am thankful for the opportunities which came from it. Serving in the military helped me find my true passion of helping people, which is how I transitioned into a career in Human Resources.
Shannon Tipton over at Learning Rebels did a great post titled, “What’s in My Conference Bag? ATD ICE 2018”. It’s a nice reminder to help you plan your conference strategy. Since the next big event I’m attending is the 2018 Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Annual Conference & Exposition, I thought I’d create my own list.
We’re less than a month away from #SHRM18. Can you believe it? With all that you have going on in preparation for the Annual Conference & Exposition this year, make sure signing up for the Step Challenge is crossed off your list early!
On May 23, @shrmnextchat chatted with President of HR Topics and SHRM18 speaker Lori Kleiman about Control the Chaos and Excel as an HR Department of One.
In many small and midsize companies, the human resources department consists of one person. The department of one (DOO) handles every HR function for the entire organization, including recruiting, onboarding, training, compensation, benefits, employee relations, compliance, technology, analytics and strategy—and is frequently responsible for other business processes at the same time.
