HR TN Conference

TN HR Conference 2017

HR Tennessee 2017

Priority Group’s Heather Goines-Evans, COO, and Chris Nichols, Business Development, attended the HR Tennessee Conference and Exposition, hosted by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) from October 1 – 4. Being members of the Middle Tennessee chapter, MT|SHRM, Priority Group was happy to participate in this educational conference in Nashville.

 

MT|SHRM is celebrating their 50th anniversary in 2017, and had the opportunity to host this event, which was the largest TN state conference ever. Over 1,500 HR colleagues, exhibitors, guests and sponsors attended this year’s event.

 

With 78 sessions and workshops in six focus tracks (Business Management & Strategy; Talent Management; Compensation; Benefits; Legal; HR Technology), the conference offered many learning opportunities for Priority Group, so that we can continue to develop our organization in a way that helps our clients and communities.

“Attending this conference gave us the knowledge to deliver more practical solutions to our organization and stay on top of the latest HR developments,” Heather said.

 

The conference opened on Monday with a keynote delivered by Peyton Manning titled Business Lessons from the Gridiron. Other speakers included Dr. Michael Burcham, CEO of Narus Health; and John Daniel, Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer for First Horizon National Corp.

“The keynotes were really informative,” Chris said. “Peyton Manning did a great job making the connection between managing a football team versus an organization.  Michael Burcham was outstanding as well in discussing How to Think Like a CEO.”

 

The conference as a whole was a great event for Priority Group. We are excited to attend the conference again next year so we can continually develop our Human Resources knowledge.
