One thing I really enjoy is attending conferences targeted to HR and recruiting professionals. I don’t pretend to fall into either category, however, as a job search and social media coach, clearly there is a lot of overlap between our work and lots of great information I can share with my clients. I’m delighted to announce I am a designated onsite blogger and “live tweeter” for this year’s Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) conference in Atlanta.

Concurrent Session Track Descriptions
Business Acumen & Leadership | Two Day Track
These sessions build the business know-how of HR practitioners ranging from the specialist/generalist to the mid-level manager to the seasoned leader. Specialist/generalist and mid-level professionals can select from sessions that develop and enhance their fundamental business “literacy.” Seasoned leaders can learn about the impact of their actions on decision-making and how this in turn affects outcomes at the functional, unit, or corporate level.
Law & Legislation | Two Day Track
Whether in a union or nonunion workplace, HR professionals must understand critical legal issues that affect day-to-day business decisions. These sessions will highlight policies and practices and focus on key employment law issues that affect the way HR professionals conduct business.
Total Rewards | Two Day Track
These sessions will focus on the broad span of topics ranging from the basics to leading edge topics in compensation, benefits and total rewards.
Organizational Evolution | One Day Track
As many organizations grow, change and evolve today, it is increasingly important to strategically manage the lifecycle of the organizational talent. These sessions will showcase trends in recruiting, interviewing, change management initiatives, employee engagement, and generational gaps in the workforce.
Talent Management | Two Day Track
These sessions will help you maximize your focus on talent management including areas ranging from hiring, educating, coaching, development, to succession planning, employee surveys and assessments.
Diversity & Inclusion | One Day Track
This track will focus on the qualities, experiences and work styles that make individuals different yet unique – such as age, race, religion, disability, ethnicity, gender, national origin, and sexual orientation and how organizations can realize the benefits and leverage those qualities in support of business objectives.
HR Leveraging Technology | Two Day Track
In addition to Technology Row, the Technology Association of Georgia is proud to present the Technology Track for the second year. These sessions discuss how technological tools can impact and improve your business in areas such as networking, HR administration, recruiting, and company communications.
