More than 200 organizations are sending groups of HR professionals to the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) 2016 Annual Conference & Exposition in Washington, D.C.
The largest contingents are from ADP (62 registrants); AutoZone (51); the National Security Agency (46); Sapa Extrusion North America, a producer of extruded aluminum products (29); The TJX Cos., an apparel and home goods company (27); the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (27); The World Bank (27); and AARP (25).
This is the sixth year ADP has selected a group of its HR employees to send to Annual Conference. Based in Roseland, N.J., ADP is a global payroll service provider for hundreds of thousands of companies, including SHRM. ADP also sponsored the SHRM Pinnacle Awards for many years.
“Many corporate delegations return each year because their leaders have recognized that their investment has resulted in high-performing HR teams who drive success across the organization,” said Jeanne Morris, SHRM’s director for educational programs.
This is the first year Sapa Extrusion and The TJX Cos. have sent corporate delegations of employees to Annual Conference, according to Elizabeth Lacey, SHRM’s corporate partnership specialist.
The World Bank, which has been working with SHRM on getting all of its team members ready to take the SHRM Certification exams, is using Annual Conference as an additional opportunity for its delegation to prepare for the tests.
These delegations will be recognized during a general session and will receive additional benefits exclusive to the Corporate Delegation Program, including reserved seating during keynote addresses, access to the Corporate Concierge Lounge, invitations to the Senior Corporate Delegation Luncheon, and invitations to a meet-and-greet with the SHRM Executive Team.
Brian Michaud, senior vice president of client services at ADP TotalSource, sees attendance at Annual Conference as an investment in the development of the company’s HR associates.
“The field of HR is always evolving,” he said, noting that Annual Conference provides an opportunity for HR associates to keep up with those changes.
About 400 HR professionals from ADP’s three business units—Comprehensive Services, TotalSource and Resource—are eligible to apply for selection, which is based in part on job performance and holding SHRM-SCP, SHRM-CP or legacy certifications, including those from the HR Certification Institute. ADP selected 50 people this year; 12 others also are attending.
