5 Key Takeaways from SHRM 2019 in Las Vegas

TAW_booth

We’re back after a successful SHRM 2019 in Vegas! TicketsatWork connected with thousands of HR professionals from around the world, sharing all the ways TicketsatWork can support a healthy and fun work-life balance via our corporate benefits platform. We networked, met new HR folks from across the country and attended engaging sessions that focused on the theme Creating Better Workplaces. As a team, we left the conference inspired, motivated and prepared for the future. Previously, we covered the 5 Ways to Make the Most of Your SHRM 2019 Experience. And now, we’re sharing our top SHRM takeaways that you can start practicing in the workplace today.

Be actively engaged in setting the culture.
A vibrant, supportive, innovative office culture is the first step to workplace success. And, the more engaged an employee is with this culture, the better work they’ll put forth. This is the same for HR professionals. Actively participating, remaining positive and sharing an emotional connection with employees are all ways you can be both a leader and a team player in your organization – not just a bystander. In turn, employees will more likely do the same.

Create workplaces where everyone has the opportunity to thrive and grow.
Every single person – regardless of their challenges – deserves a chance to grow personally and professionally. Top performers deliver their best work when they’re aligned with and enthusiastic about the company’s mission. Make actionable plans today to help every employee feel empowered, appreciated and part of the team.

Benefits have consistently shown to be the key factor to success.
Today’s employee marketplace is competitive – very competitive. To recruit and retain top talent, you must offer quality, unique benefits that set your company apart. Companies are continuously trying to diversify their benefits based on current laws, regulations and demographic and societal trends, in order to maintain a competitive edge. A key learning from SHRM was this: Make benefits a priority, and remain flexible and open to changes as the workforce changes.

Learn one thing at a time and focus your energy on that before moving on to the next.
Do you have team members who multitask? They may want to change their approach. Studies have shown that multitasking decreases performance, because the brain doesn’t have the latitude to simultaneously perform multiple tasks effectively. This insight can be applied to roles across the company. Focus on fully mastering a specific skill before moving on to the next. Not only does this instill a profound sense of accomplishment, but work performance will vastly improve.

Practice the art of appreciation: You will receive more than you give.
We can all learn something from each other. Every employee provides a different perspective and brings unique talents and skillsets to the table. It’s important to acknowledge this, and to show your employees that you notice their work, commitment and successes, small or big. Expressing your appreciation – whether in words, gift cards, special awards or more – go a long way!

5 Ways to Make the Most of Your SHRM 2019 Experience in Vegas

SHRM 2019 in Las Vegas - TicketsatWork

SHRM 2019 is taking over Las Vegas! TicketsatWork is joining the action-packed excitement as thousands of HR professionals gather to explore the theme of “Creating Better Workplaces” through inspiring keynote speakers, comprehensive sessions, networking and more.

With so many exhibitors, speakers and sessions to experience, SHRM can quickly become overwhelming – but it doesn’t have to be if you come prepared. Make the most of your time at SHRM 2019 in Las Vegas with these top tips!

Take advantage of every opportunity
Although it’s easier said than done, check off your work to-do list before you head to SHRM, so you can be in the moment and seize every opportunity that arises. Attend sessions that will expand your perspective. Set up meetings with professionals you’ve been waiting to speak to. Discover new solutions at the enormous Exposition Hall. You’ll be surprised at the incredible opportunities available to you at SHRM.
Get inspired by the speakers
Enhance your learning experience at SHRM by choosing a great mix of speakers with stories and viewpoints that not only align with yours, but also ones that challenge your current mindset. In doing so, their messages will allow you to grow, find solutions to meet the needs of your organization and transform your overall impact in your workplace and community.

Make time for one of the most valuable parts of SHRM – the people
Planning your schedule is always good, but be sure to let those serendipitous moments happen. This is your time to engage with industry professionals who get it – talk with them and ask questions. If you don’t allow free time to reach out to new people, there will be lots of missed opportunities. Make it happen!

Refresh and recharge in Sin City style
It can’t be all work and no play! Las Vegas is the perfect playground to enjoy some leisure time between sessions or after a full day of SHRM. From dazzling shows on the Strip to breathtaking tours outside of Vegas, TicketsatWork.com lets you experience Sin City without breaking the bank. Save on Las Vegas tickets!

Be part of the conversation on social media
One of the best things to do before and after SHRM is to join the conversation on all social media platforms. Connect with attendees.  See what topics are trending and then be part of the discussion. You can also discover fun nighttime events. Social media works wonders. Follow us @TicketsatWork and #SHRM19 to stay up to date. We look forward to hearing from you!
