2012 WI SHRM Student Conference Wrap Up

For those of you that were not able to make it to the 2012 College Relations Conference & HR games, you missed out on a good time. Despite the nasty weather Friday afternoon/evening, we had a great turnout! We had 18 HR Games competition teams this year with some great match-ups which made it even more interesting. Judge Henry Hamilton III was our Keynote on Saturday and gave a presentation to the group on EEOC issues. The break-out speakers talked about Labor Relations, OSHA and Social Media. Thank you to UW-Platteville’s student chapter members and volunteers for being GREAT hosts this year. Also, thank you to our sponsors and to the volunteers who made this event a complete success and kept everything running smooth!!!

Awards were given for the top 4 teams in the HR Games competition as follows:

1st Place – Blackhawk Technical College – “SHRMinologists”

2nd Place – UW – Platteville – “SHRMazings”

3rd Place – UW – Whitewater – “Risky Business”

4th Place – UW – Madison – “Honey Badgers”

We are now starting to look towards our 2013 Conference. We are still in the preliminary stages of planning so please stay tuned for updates to come. If you are interested in hosting the event, please contact Callie Zipple at callie.zipple@ki.com for more information. The formal bid process will not start until April/May 2012. We look forward to putting together another great event for next year!
