We heard from SHRM National thought leaders - Lisa Horn from Governmental Affairs, and the Workplace Flexibility initiative, and Phyllis Shurn-Hannah, our Regional Field Service Director, about what’s new at SHRM National.
Headliners, Izzy Gessell, Jon Petz, and Cy Wakeman, provided advice on the future of the improvisational skills needed to rock HR, how to remain passionate about our roles, and effective employee engagement strategies. We also included warm up bands; covering the nuts and bolts of payroll and compensation and HR basics and advanced best practices, several panel sessions; the one person HR shop – how to perform solo, healthcare topics, employee recruitment and retention, and local and federal employment law updates.
