Our HR team just got back from #SHRM18 — and they haven’t stopped raving about it since. Even though they knew what they were most excited about prior to attending, from the sound of it, the conference surpassed their expectations. While most of what they learned was all things human resources, we can relate to the feeling of coming back from a convention recharged and motivated to step back into work. Any chance our team gets to take advantage of resources to expand their knowledge and benefit their specific role brings with it improved company culture, client satisfaction, and innovation (cheers to that!). Whether you were able to attend #SHRM18 or hope to join next year, here are 10 top #SHRM18 tweets and takeaways that any HR professional will enjoy.

1. But first… coffee!

In true ttcInnovations’ fashion, our Innovators show up with coffee in hand. Behind every successful HR professional is a substantial amount of coffee, right? At least, that’s what a sign said at the conference (and we couldn’t agree more!).

2. Right from our Human Resources Specialist herself…

#SHRM18 did not disappoint! It was truly an experience and the magnitude of the conference is hard to put into words. It really spurs an eagerness to get back to your desk ready to implement and improve.

The keynote speakers were brilliant. I found myself constantly nodding along with Sheryl Sandberg, and Adam Grant was all about innovation and culture contribution.

My favorite session was HR Metrics That Matter: Learn How to Drive Sustainable Business Processes, presented by Shane Yount. One quote that really resonated with me was, “Every metric needs to drive connectivity, clarity and/or a culture of consistency.”

3. Helpful tip for the candidate search!

4. Innovation? Yes, we’re in.

“If you want to hire original thinkers who will drive innovation, stop looking for people who will be a good ‘cultural fit’ and start seeking those who can make a cultural contribution,” said best-selling author Adam Grant.

5. Here’s what not to do.

6. Remember to look for…

7. Ask the expert himself!

8. We can’t forget about Pentatonix.

9. Let’s talk culture.

10. When it’s all said and done, keep it simple.
