Welcome to Utah SHRM

Leading HR Executive Summit

March 28th & 29th, 2019

Are you confident that your organization consistently makes good business decisions?  There is a clear link between using data and information for decision-making and achieving strategic advantage over your competitors. So how do you do that consistently and effectively?

As a senior HR leader or company executive, you will learn from other HR experts the critical thinking skills that drive business success. Bookended by thought-provoking keynote sessions, you will be able to take a deep dive in small group think tanks designed to help you develop actionable strategies to address common – and critical – business decisions in your organization. You’ll have an opportunity to discuss their organizational challenges and hurdles confidentially, benefit from others’ perspectives, and create a supportive cohort. You’ll also be able to enjoy several informal social opportunities to start and strengthen personal and professional relationships. At the conclusion of the conference, you will be ready to take specific, well-defined steps to guide and strengthen your organization.
