    5 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Miss the Washington State Employment Law & HR Conference!

    The 2018 Washington State Employment Law & HR Conference starts in just a few weeks! And while we believe that there are countless opportunities why you should attend this annual conference, we've managed to narrow it down to five core reasons:

    Hear from the experts.

    Our speakers are proven business leaders, strategists, practitioners and peers. Many of them are current HR professionals; others are well-respected industry leaders who know what you need to know.

    Learn skills and stay up-to-date.

    No matter how long you've been in HR or what position you hold at your company, chances are there is still something you need to learn. Trends, new strategies, and innovations in HR happen all the time; to stay up-to-date you need an educational opportunity that provides you with the full range of HR knowledge. 

    Protect your company from liability - avoid legal risk before it arises by staying current with the latest changes in labor legislation. From federal legislative compliance, to HR legal issues, we help you stay on top of the most important legislative priorities.


    Your attendance earns you credits toward maintaining your valuable certification – your SHRM-CP, SHRM-SCP, HRCI or other general designation. 

    Meet with new vendors and suppliers.

    Our exhibitors are industry experts and solution-providers who truly understand what is happening in the world of HR and business - and they have answers to your questions. Invest time the exposition hall - our vendors are some of the best people for you to get to know if you want to learn more about what's happening in HR now - and what's going to happen in the future. Trust us: discovering innovative products and services is necessary to stay competitive in today’s business world.  

    Have fun with your HR peers from around Washington State.

    Let's be honest – this conference is a lot of learning packed into a short amount of time. But you’ll also have opportunities to relax and get to know your peers. When you meet with your peers, you have an opportunity to collaborate, hear new ideas, and validate or change your perspectives. You may hear what others are doing and be inspired to implement something similar - or you might find a mentor or even become one.  Plus, the Thursday night pre-conference networking event is a crowd favorite!  This year’s networking event is a roaring 20’s/Gatsby inspired event that will include fun food, drinks and more!
