Nine UWI-ALJGSB participants will be attending the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) 2019 conference and exposition in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA from June 23rd – 26th 2019. The student delegation, led by Dr. Wynette Harewood, will join over 20,000 attendees at the Las Vegas Convention Center for the largest annual Human Resource Management conference and exposition in the world!
This year, the theme of the conference is ‘Creating Better Workplaces’. HR practitioners perform several roles at the intersection of people and business that present unique challenges and opportunities for creating better work environments. With almost 200 concurrent sessions to select from, delegates will have the privilege to attend presentations addressing strategies and practical takeaways relevant to the conference theme. These sessions, conducted by internationally renowned Business and Human Resources experts, will cover nine broad topic areas:
- Business Acumen & Metrics
- Compensation & Benefits
- Global HR
- Workplace Strategy
The conference and exposition provide a rich and diverse learning environment to broaden knowledge about HR strategies, tactics, products and services. As the largest gathering of HR professionals, it is an ideal meeting place for networking with Caribbean and international HR practitioners, researchers and educators.
