Coming off the back of two stressful years for millions of employees and employers alike, 2022’s SHRM Annual Conference & Expo has been aptly titled ‘Cause the Effect’ – focused on workplace culture, inclusion, and mental health. With more than 500 exhibitors set to put up shop for the 4-day event, including Whispir at booth #5753, there’s no better year to attend this global gathering of HR professionals.
Keeping up with the times, for those unable to attend in person, the 4-day event will also be held virtually so that everyone has the opportunity to experience the conference’s many events (plus, up to 60 days after it’s over) that range from seminars to workshops, exhibitor demonstrations, two Changemakers Series, and plenty more.
So, what is SHRM?
SHRM stands for The Society for Human Resource Management – a team of experts determined to elevate HR teams and transform the workplace as we know it. In short, SHRM hopes to build a world of work that works for all.
