Score Points to Earn Badges, Win Prizes

​Flex those fingers and get ready for the SHRM2022 Leaderboard Game. Virtual attendees can earn points and badges for a chance to win one of five great prizes.

Participants can visit vendors' online booths, watch and chat in sessions, take surveys, and network with other virtual attendees. Attendees also can participate in group or individual meetings, leave a virtual business card, download links and other vendor resources, and watch demonstrations and presentations.

Wendy Fong, SHRM's manager of virtual event innovation, encourages attendees to explore all the functionalities of the platform, which opens June 6.

"Uncover the ins and outs as you learn about business solutions and network with other attendees while earning points and badges," she said. "The virtual experience is in your hands."

The top five participants with the highest point totals on the leaderboard will each receive one of the following prizes:

  • Virtual pass for SHRM Annual Conference & Expo 2023 (valued at up to $1,675).
  • $500 Southwest Airlines gift card.
  • $250 SHRMStore promo credit.
