Managing Your Career in HR
Business Acumen Content Area

 

Join Tom Darrow, Founding Principal of Talent Connections, LLC and Career Spa, LLC and recently appointed Chair of The SHRM Foundation as he discusses how to best manage your career in HR.

Most HR professionals didn't begin their career in Human Resources. Actually only 28% of HR professionals began their professional work in the HR field. So, now that you're in HR, how do you advance? What skills lead to "HR Champions" trusted business partners and maybe even a seat at the table? Learn what experience, competencies, and other factors are needed to drive your career to the next level.  

Attendees will get to hear Tom discuss his own transition into HR and get firsthand knowledge from a seasoned industry expert.

The session will cover:
-The skills, knowledge and competencies that HR professionals need to meet the demands of the ever changing global workplace and grow within the profession.
-How does an HR Professional best position their self for growth in the industry as a whole?
-How do the new SHRM Competency based certifications, SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP, differ from the HRCI certifications – do you need both?

Don’t miss this great opportunity to engage in an intimate setting with one of our communities most accomplished HR professionals.
