Breakthroughs can happen in an instant, or they can be the result of a long, difficult process. They show up in many different forms—a connection, an opportunity, a new idea—and then allow us to move forward with greater ease or clarity. Breakthroughs are those distinct moments when the answer becomes clear, the picture comes into sharper focus, and we
I believe our profession, human resource management, is at one of those breakthrough moments when business leaders get it and truly understand that great HR makes great organizations.
We also need those moments throughout our careers, and there is no better place to find yours than at the
Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) 2016 Annual Conference & Exposition (#SHRM16), to be held June 19-22 in Washington, D.C.
Your breakthrough may happen as you listen to one of our inspiring keynote speakers, who are leaders in business, politics and education. It may come during one of the hundreds of learning opportunities, from our 200 concurrent sessions to our Masters Series presentations to our Smart Stage sessions. You may find it at our Exposition, where 600 companies will have solutions to your toughest problems. Or you could find it through a connection you make with another HR professional from across the country or around the world. It may even happen while you are out exploring our nation’s capital—an exciting, influential city where history is in the making every day.
You never know where or when your breakthrough moment will occur.
In the mid-2000s, #SHRM16 keynoter Sal Khan did not set out to reinvent education; he was a hedge fund manager giving his friends and family easy “human to human” math lessons online. Those lessons quickly went viral and eventually grew into the nonprofit
Khan Academy, which today provides free, world-class education online for millions of learners around the world.
We cannot predict these opportunities that launch us forward. Often, we only recognize them in hindsight. However, we
can better position ourselves to get to that next level in our careers, at our organizations and as a profession.
Today, the top challenges facing organizations are those that involve people management. Workplace issues are at the forefront of national conversations. Moreover, the changing nature of employment and employees will continue to put HR out in front to lead business.
This means that you must be well-positioned for a breakthrough, and we are planning every detail of the
SHRM 2016 Annual Conference & Exposition to help you find yours. There is simply no HR learning, sharing or developmental opportunity in the world bigger than #SHRM16.
I hope to see you there.
