5 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Miss SHRM17

SHRM17 is headed to vibrant New Orleans - at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center! And while we believe that there are countless opportunities why you should attend the SHRM Annual Conference, we've managed to narrow it down to five classic reasons:

Hear from the experts.

Our speakers are proven business leaders, strategists, practitioners and peers. Many of them are current HR professionals; others are well-respected industry leaders who know what you need to know. Our selection process for speakers is as rigorous as you'll find anywhere, and we make sure that you're hearing from the best. You'll get a solid grounding in tried-and-true HR fundamentals and unique insight into the innovative new practices that will change how the world does business.
 
 

Learn skills and stay up-to-date.

No matter how long you've been in HR or what position you hold at your company, chances are there is still something you need to learn. Trends, new strategies, and innovations in HR happen all the time; to stay up-to-date you need an educational opportunity that provides you with the full range of HR knowledge. 

Protect your company from liability - avoid legal risk before it arises by staying current with the latest changes in labor legislation. From federal legislative compliance, to HR legal issues specific to California, we help you stay on top of the most important legislative priorities.

Have fun with your HR peers from around the world.

We know you've heard it all before, but networking is a huge part of your professional success. When you meet with your peers, you have an opportunity to collaborate, hear new ideas, and validate or change your perspectives. You may hear what others are doing and be inspired to implement something similar - or you could even hear another idea and realize you're already on the right track! You can find a mentor or become one, and even make connections to help you further your own career.

Let's be honest - the Annual Conference is a lot of learning packed into a short amount of time.
