Last week at this time, I was just finishing up the 2016 TN State SHRM Conference in Memphis, TN. They organized 2.5 days of jam-packed sessions focused on the new employment law changes as well as strategy sessions focused on recruitment, engagement, health & wellness, and the list keeps going. I got to meet new HR professionals that work in my state, in my own city, Chattanooga, and also reunite with some fellow HR colleagues that I met last year.
One of my favorite speakers was the keynote, Sam Glenn. He focused on a very simple concept: Attitude is Everything. It was a great reminder to keep my own attitude in check but also how important hiring people with the right kind of attitude can positively impact your organization and vice versa.
And lastly we had a little bit of fun along with all the learning! The Memphis team organized a social at the Bass Pro Shop in the Memphis Pyramid. The inside was impressive with waterways, docks, boats, fish, atv’s, a restaurant, general store, and even a hotel. A memorable venue for sure!
Until next year…
