Many moons ago, as a young single mother of two children, I began looking to pursue a degree, and the options for online learning were minimal then. The University of Phoenix literally saved the day! The experience was so amazing, I went all the way through to my Master's degree. Without their flexible learning options, I would have never been able to do it! I am a “Phoenix” and proud of it!  Please enjoy my “interview” with the University of Phoenix!

Employee engagement has been one of the critical drivers and most focused topics for years. Organizations increasingly expect ‘more from less’ from the productivity standpoint as digitalization finds its way in how organizations and teams operate internally and externally with customers. Therefore, the level of employee engagement is the critical driver of productivity. Although there are various definitions for employee engagement, my simple definition is the employee’s emotional connection with the organization and motivation to take the extra step toward its mission.

This coming week will be my 20th SHRM annual conference to attend. This feels like such a milestone in my life. It was supposed to happen last year, but COVID-19…

I was so happy to be able to catch up with Claire Petrie and chat about the upcoming SHRM21 and what she has planned for the #SHRM21 annual conference. Claire and I first met on Twitter via #NextChat and #HRSocialHour and met for the first time in real life on the #SHRMBlogger team at #SHRM18. She has a passion for helping emerging HR professionals develop their personal brand and make the most of their conference experience and her enthusiasm for helping others is contagious!

While I certainly would prefer being in person at the 2021 SHRM Annual Conference and Expo, it’s just not possible for me this year. I’ll be sad I don’t get the chance to jump off the Stratosphere again, however, what an amazing opportunity virtual attendance provides. I can experience the conference in a whole different way!
