The exposition, held all day, included a lunchtime meet and greet, in which participants were given an extra opportunity to exchange information and resources with fellow exhibitors. HR Generalists, Recruiting Managers, and Talent Acquisition professionals walked the aisles of the expo, gaining industry knowledge from each vendor and collaborating on ideas and innovations.
Informational sessions also continued throughout day two of SHRM. Zappos Inc., featuring Tiffany and Rockne of Zappos, held a fun afternoon session that included a music video encompassing the importance of company culture at Zappos. Zappos relayed their attitude toward culture: That it should be infused in everything an organization does and should be a part of all hiring decisions.
Zappos stated that companies should hire for a cultural fit, and incorporate this into a company’s brand from day one. According to Zappos, a company should have a culture “Worth tweeting about!” Participants in SHRM have had time in the evenings to explore all that Las Vegas has to offer. With high, blustery winds, it has made for interesting – and breezy – walks on the Strip.
We are so pleased to have been part of this conference. It provided amazing networking and educational opportunities for all within HR, Talent Management, and Staffing.
