CWSHRM October Meeting: Please join us virtually on Thursday, October 15 from 8:00-9:00am. As Daniel Stewart presents to us on the top of “Strengthening Employee Experience in Time of Uncertainty.” Leading organizations are designing and managing the entire Employee Experience (EX) to positively impact business and people results. The EX is so much more than engagement or satisfaction surveys. In the fullest sense, it captures the critical ups and downs of an employee’s journey with your organization – especially at the key moments that matter. As you strive to do with customers – do as well or better with employees. Ensuring exceptional EX at critical points like during recruitment, first-day on the job, career development conversations, and supervisor interactions builds the needed employee commitment and strategic focus.

Wisconsin HR Professional of the Year Awards: Throughout the COVID-19 crisis this year, employers have stepped up big to reimagine how they do business. Often led by you and the HR team, employers have had to figure out how to keep workers and customers safe, shift to remote work as applicable, establish new lines of communications and, for those remote workers, build new ways of maintaining a positive company culture. Many have also worked on creating workshare plans and have helped their employees navigate all the new sick leave and unemployment benefit changes related to COVID-19. This has truly been a year when having a strong HR leader and team has been consequential.
WMC and Ogeltree Deakins are currently accepting nominations for the 4th annual Human Resources Professional of the Year Awards, and we want to hear from and about HR professionals throughout the state that have done gone above and beyond during the crisis. Please consider nominating individuals in your company, self-nominate, or nominating a local SHRM member. Despite this difficult year, we want to be able to showcase the great work that HR professionals have accomplished. Learn more or make a nomination at www.wmc.org/HRaward. Nominations are due on October 16. Winners of the awards will be announced virtually in December.
