CWSHRM HR Video Series

What do you do when members aren’t always able to attend your local chapter meetings and you want to get word out about your local chapter and HR education?  Get creative with video and social media!  The Central WI SHRM chapter did just that.  We partnered with U.S. Workforce stories to create quick video educational resources for our members and the community.

The videos were created to serve two purposes.  One was to communicate the benefits of CWSHRM and the HR profession.  The other goal was to develop a short series of HR related questions, answered by HR professionals.  Four CWSHRM members, including our President, volunteered to be videotaped at their office.  Each member had an HR related question/topic they discussed and answered.  The members then also discussed the benefits of our CWSHRM and why they chose the HR profession.

 These videos were then released on Facebook in different time intervals and shown at our membership meeting and will be launched at our next local Business Expo!  Check out some of the videos on our Facebook page here  https://www.facebook.com/cwshrm/
