#SHRM18 Is underway

Sunday, June 17, Father’s Day, kicked off the #SHRM18 conference. Johnny C. Taylor, SHRM’s CEO had a rousing welcome for the more than 20,000 attendees. A new record for SHRM! McCormick Place is a huge venue, but 20,000 people and thousands of vendors do fill it up.
Former Governor Jeb Bush gave the opening keynote. His remarks resonated with much of the crowd on the need to mend the political divide that exists in the country. He says the current discourse is not good for business. We need to do more to help the employment base in the US.
After the keynote, the Exposition opened up. I have much more visiting to do there.
I will be posting all week about the conference. You can also follow my remarks and observations on Twitter on @mikehaberman.
