HR Florida Sponsors 7th Annual HR Conference Cruise 

By Chad Sorenson, HR Florida President

The HR Florida and Ohio SHRM State Councils partnered with Aspect Marketing to sponsor the 7th HR Conference Cruise in April. We set sail on April 23rd for Haiti and the Bahamas. While some may think not much gets accomplished when surrounded by the trappings of a cruise, nothing could be further from the truth.  

My experience at this conference was like none other. As a speaker, most times when you finish your presentation, you move on and head to the next conference. You might stay for the next speaker, but then it’s time to go. Out at sea, we were a captive audience. We were immersed in the HR Florida and Ohio SHRM hype – and I loved it. Read more
