Did you know that there are a number of yearly conferences and trade shows dedicated to HR professionals, and all of the challenges you face? I know that HR professionals are extremely busy people juggling a wide range of duties and tasks. That said, it is also vital to sometimes leave your desk and attend a trade show or conference. Doing so will arm yourself with the strategies and tools you need to address the challenges you face on a daily basis to do your job to the best of your ability.
This October, the 2015 HR Tech Expo (link http://www.hrtechconference.com/expo.html) is coming to Las Vegas. Last year’s event featured in excess of 300 exhibitors and more than 60 new product introductions. HR areas covered encompassed benefits, compensation and payroll, employee communications, performance management, talent management, training and development, workforce analytics, and workforce planning.
This year’s conference agenda (link http://www.hrtechconference.com/earlydetails.html) is still in its planning stages, but it looks like there will be 10 tracks to customize your HR educational experience, with topics like recruiting and technical insight.
Getting out of your comfort zone and putting in some face-to-face time is a wonderful opportunity to learn and not only grow as an HR professional, but also keep on top of the latest trends like mobile, video, analytics, social and Big Data. There are bound to be conferences/trade shows closer to home if Texas is too far away—simply use your favorite search engine to find them!
