In 33 short days, thousands of HR professionals will converge on the city of Chicago for #SHRM18. It's an opportunity not to be missed. For me, this will be my 7th conference, but my first as a member of the SHRM Blog Squad. I'm beyond excited for the conference this year, looking forward to meet some old friends and make some new ones.
I can’t believe we are just about a month away from welcoming 20 thousand + of our HR friends & colleagues friends here in my home city of Chicago!
With so much to do; and a lot of action happening with a short few days, I wanted to give a little local perspective with some tips on how best to take advantage of your time at #SHRM18.
On June 17, more than 16,000 attendees will gather at McCormick Place in Chicago for four days of learning, sharing and networking at the SHRM 2018 Annual Conference & Exposition.

Wellness programs don’t just reduce costs by increasing the likelihood that your employees show up for work. A holistic and well managed wellness program can also serve as a recruitment tool.
I’ve had the pleasure of knowing noted speaker, author and thought-leader Cy Wakeman for 10+ years. Even better, I can call her a friend. Her sessions are always fascinating, informational and packed. She is a must see for me at any conference.
I believe in mentorship.
At some point or another, we all need a helping hand and alternatively, at some point or another, we need to be that helping hand for someone else.
If we are open to it, we can all benefit from mentorship whether through formal programs or through relationships that nudge you out of your comfort zone towards bigger, better, greater things.
