SHRM Nebraska Conference a Place to Learn and Mingle

The SHRM Nebraska State Conference last week was a great success!  Education, networking, and fun continues to serve and advance the HR profession.

The breakout sessions were timely and informative. My favorite strategic session was “Thinking INSIDE the Box – Working with CFOs”.  Karl Ahlrichs of Expert Speaks did a fantastic job outlining the gap between most organization’s human resource and C-level initiatives. Bridging this gap and aligning strategies are the keys to our organizations’ success. My biggest take away is elementary but something most of us forget to do . . . always speak to your audience, use their terminology and take the time to prepare your thoughts so you can efficiently communicate ROI, bottom line, and what’s in it for everyone.

We also enjoyed exhibiting and mingling with clients, partners, and new friends.

 Congratulations to the Grand Prize Trip winner, Diane Blair and our booth raffle prize winner, Chris Tibbs!
