As one of our chapters strategic goals, Sheboygan Area SHRM is committed to building community relationships, including growing the profession and increasing our chapter membership and involvement. Travis Knier, current President for the Sheboygan Area SHRM chapter had the opportunity to spend an afternoon with first year students enrolled in the Human Resources program at Lakeshore Technical College. He shared his own HR experiences with the students and spent time talking to them about the many benefits of joining a local HR chapter, not only as a student member but as a volunteer as well. Travis reiterated to the students how joining can build connections, give them the chance to learn from experienced professionals and gain valuable leadership skills.
As a chapter, we would like to increase our social media engagement to continue our quest for building relationships, amongst members! Late June, Sheboygan Area SHRM announced a LinkedIn challenge to encourage our Sheboygan Area SHRM members to encourage colleagues to join our LinkedIn page and/or post a professional HR related question, idea, whitepaper, etc. We have extended the challenge to wrap up a few months into the program year and will then draw a winner for a $100 gift card somewhere special. The more posts the more chances!!
