HR Conferences

By: Greg Modd

I had the pleasure of speaking at Michigan HR Day 2023 yesterday. It was a great experience and prompted me to write a quick blog on the benefits of HR conferences. Human resources conferences provide HR consultants and professionals a unique opportunity to stay up-to-date with the latest industry trends, learn from experts, and network with peers. Attending such conferences can help HR professionals enhance their skills and knowledge, stay connected with the HR community, and advance their careers. Here are some of the advantages of attending human resources conferences:

Learning from industry experts: HR conferences often feature industry experts' presentations, workshops, and keynote speeches. Attending these sessions can help HR professionals learn about the latest trends and best practices in the field and gain valuable insights and perspectives on various HR-related topics.

Networking opportunities: Conferences provide an excellent opportunity for HR professionals to connect with other HR professionals, exchange ideas, and share experiences. They can meet new people, build relationships, and expand their professional networks.

Access to new technologies and tools: Many HR conferences feature exhibitors showcasing new HR-related technologies and tools. These vendors often allow HR professionals to explore new software, tools, and platforms to help them be more efficient and effective.

Continuing education credits: Many HR conferences offer continuing education credits from SHRM and HRCI that go towards professional development certification. These credits can help HR professionals meet their continuing education requirements, maintain their credentials, and demonstrate their commitment to ongoing learning and development.

From the perspective of a conference speaker, attending and presenting at human resources conferences can also be a valuable experience. It provides an opportunity to share expertise, connect with peers, and build credibility as a thought leader in the field. Speaking at conferences can also help speakers develop their presentation skills, gain exposure to new ideas and perspectives, and enhance their reputation as an industry expert.

In addition to these professional benefits attending human resources conferences is often a fun and enjoyable experience. Conferences often occur in exciting locations, offer social events, and provide opportunities for HR professionals to relax and unwind while learning and networking.

Human resources conferences provide numerous benefits for HR consultants and professionals, including learning from industry experts, networking opportunities, access to new technologies and tools, and continuing education credits. From the perspective of a conference speaker, attending and presenting at conferences can also be a valuable experience that provides opportunities for personal and professional growth.
