Fuzion’s Human Resources team received both training and inspiration at the HR Indiana Annual Conference 2017 held at the JW Marriott & Indiana Convention Center from August 28 to August 30. The Indiana State Council Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) hosted this conference. In its 23rd year, it is the largest SHRM conference in the Midwest and included 1800 attendees this year. With three days of learning, networking, and inspiration, the conference provides informative and practical sessions that are relative for today’s HR professionals.
This years’ conference featured many accomplished and well-known keynote speakers, including:
- Anucha Browne, Vice President of Women’s Basketball Championships, NCAA
- Peyton Manning, Football legend
- Cy Wakeman, International speaker and New York Times best-selling author
- Dan Heath, Senior Fellow at Duke University’s CASE Center and New York Times best-selling author
General sessions and concurrent tracks focused on practical HR tips, legal updates, strategy, and associate engagement. These sessions and tracks allow attendees to acquire new tools and knowledge to bring back to their organizations. Fuzion’s associates will benefit greatly by having our HR professionals take a few days from their normal responsibilities to keep current with important issues and bring a fresh perspective to their roles.
Amber Bernauer, Human Resource Assistant shared, “my favorite topic came from the closing keynote, Dan Heath, who spoke on creating defining moments within our organization. Moments of Elevation, Insight, Pride, and Connection, to create an unforgettable, individual experience for our associates. There is so much value in personalizing each person’s experience here at Fuzion. I enjoy every opportunity to, as Dan puts it, disrupt the forgettable flatness within our workday. The HR Indiana Annual Conference is helping me do just that!”
