WHY ATTEND?

MOSHRM knows that the workplace demands on HR professionals during this pandemic have been monumental. We also know that your department’s focus will be on the safety and wellbeing of your employees as we move through 2021. Because attending in-person conferences and engaging in non-essential travel might not be an option for a majority of our attendees, we have moved this year’s conference virtual. Our interactive virtual conference platform will engage attendees, exhibitors and sponsors over three days through inspiring keynotes, concurrent sessions with industry experts and practitioners, networking roundtables, live Q&A, team competition, virtual happy hour, mindfulness exercises, yoga, and the opportunity to win great prizes!

25+ THOUGHT LEADERS

Over 25 HR thought leaders will share their insights and expertise to help you address the realities of the future of work. Roles are changing, demands on the workforce are shifting, and HR will be leading the way. Put real questions to the speakers and gain strategies to prepare your company and employees for the challenges ahead. We’ll go behind the scenes with HR leaders to discuss strategy, talent acquisition, engagement, diversity/equity/inclusion/belonging, learning and development, and more! Join collaborative roundtable discussions and coffee chats, too!

21 RECERTIFICATION HOURS

Join your peers for 3 keynote speakers and 6 concurrent sessions over three days. That’s right – attendees can earn up to 21 hours of SHRM and recertification credit, participate in roundtables and coffee chats, lunch and virtual happy hours! If you cannot watch the sessions in real time…no problem…educational sessions + the expo hall will be available for 90 days on-demand!
