Day one of the 2011 WI SHRM State Conference kicked off a bang with three excellent pre-conference speakers. William Tincup brought the latest and greatest in technology in “If You Build It, Will They Come? How to Create Users Adoptions of HR Software Applications.” Krukowski and Costello shared recent changes in their “Legal Update.” Michael Venn shared the difficulties of “Navigating HR Through Financial Waters.”
The Exhibit Hall also opened and provided the 850 attendees an opportunity to hear from 127 vendors about what products every HR professional needs to have to do his or her job better.
Finally, October 13 was declared HR Professionals Day in Wisconsin by Governor Walker. What a great way to celebrate with so many good conference activities.
