On September 17, 2013 I am a motivational speaker for the Utah SHRM Crossroads HR Conference.
Over 500 HR professionals will attend this event. Some are HR specialists in areas such as benefits or recruitment while others deal with all HR issues.
The Human resource challenges in Utah are unique. This is a very young working population. Utah demographically has the youngest working population in the United States. Thus this group grapples with a slew of challenges relevant to younger generations like inappropriate dress code, sense of entitlement, showing up for work on time, appropriate use of facebook and more.
The state of utah is fortunate to have a very low unemployment rate. Partially because the state has become a thriving technology hub, recently attracting mega technology firms like Adobe, ebay and overstock.com. Thus HR professionals must do everything they can to attract and retain tech savvy employees.
Also on the minds of anyone in HR is Obama Care. New healthcare reform that specifically targets benefits. Rules on benefit coverage for seasonal or part time employees will change forcing organizations to provide more benefits year round to part time employees. This legislation, still rather ambiguous will be rolled out this fall and will drastically impact benefits and ultimatley hiring practices.
The other motivational speakers for the HR Conference are Steve Gilliland with his funny motivational speech Making a Difference and motivational speaker Ryan Estis with his motivational speech Generation NeXt.
I am an after lunch motivational speaker for the HR conference delivering the funny motivational speech, I Love My Job, it's the People I can't Stand!
