‘Driving change’ is focus of HR conference
SHRM of Tulare/Kings Counties holds annual human resources conference Sept. 19 in Visalia
VISALIA – It’s easy to focus on the cogs and widgets produced by your small business, but there is no greater resource than the intangibles your employees bring to the workplace. Networking, sales, creativity and customer service are all things machines can’t provide. No one knows this better than the people working in human resources and they want to make sure your business is around to employ as many humans as it can.
The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) of Tulare/Kings Counties invites small business owners, as well as those practicing and studying human resources, to attend its annual conference next month in Visalia. The conference will be held from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 19, at the Visalia Marriott at the Convention Center.
The conference will feature three keynote speakers: Trisha Zulic from California State Council of SHRM; Cynthia Johnson, a professor of communication and psychology at College of the Sequoias and division chair for the Language and Communications Studies division; and Tracy Butz, a workplace culture expert and author.
Online registration is available at www.shrmtularekings.org. Student admission is $75 per person and general admission is $175 per person.
SHRM of Tulare/Kings Counties is an association formed to serve the professional, educational and networking needs of human resources professionals in the Tulare and Kings county areas. Its purpose is to serve as a forum for personal and professional development; provide opportunities for members to develop leadership, managerial and public speaking skills; and to share local, state and national human resource management issues.
“The conference will provide valuable information to those who are in the HR field or studying HR, and it will be very useful for small business owners who need to understand changes in human relations policies,” noted Shelly Little, president.
