If HR conferences were desserts, the SHRM 2018 Annual Conference would be like a triple-decker ice cream sundae. Why? There are almost 200 sessions covering the subjects of business & HR strategy, professional development, HR compliance, talent management (and more), meaning you can customize your experience to focus on areas most relevant to you. Whether you want to brush up on the foundations of HR, or stay up to date on the innovative ideas that are changing the way HR leaders work – there’s something for everyone. From Sunday, June 17 to Wednesday June 20, HR professionals from around the world will meet in Chicago to connect, learn and get inspired from keynote speakers such as Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer at Facebook, and Adam Gant, The New York Times best-selling author and professor at the Wharton School of Business. They, and many other speakers, will challenge your perspectives, share their experiences, and inspire you to approach your own HR challenges in new (dare we say unorthodox?) ways. Speaking of inspiring discussions, League’s own Stewart Aguanno will be at the HR Technology Solutions Theatre on Monday, June 18 at 3:00pm. His talk is titled Building a Best-In-Class Employee Experience with Benefits. In just 30 minutes, Stewart will help you gain a better understanding of changing employee benefits expectations in the workplace, and will provide three practical ways to help your business adapt. Find Stewart at Exposition Hall, booth 463, and be sure to arrive early. Even better, add his talk to your SHRM 2018 schedule. So pile your SHRM sundae high, and customize your conference however you please. Go nuts! (We couldn’t resist.) But before you’re done, make sure you come visit League in booth 2106. Meet the League team and see how, just like your favorite sundae, employee benefits can be completely customized. But what sundae would be complete without a cherry on top? Just for visiting our booth, you’ll be entered for a chance to win a free Apple watch!
