2019 Professional Development Plans!  Enhancing YOUR Professional Brand

As members of HR Tampa, there continues to be exceptional opportunities that support ongoing professional development whether you attend the HR Tampa Conference (how great is this each and every year), or you attend the monthly membership meetings, or if you are seeking certification (PHR/SPHR/SHRM-CP/SHRM-SCP).  For others, maybe you are seeking coaching skill development or strategic practices meant to design culture and empower employees.  For those new to HR, consider the SHRM Essentials™ course – also perfect for managers who need to know the basics of HR.   

From monthly speakers who provide legal, tactical, and business discussions, to the one-day powerhouse HR Tampa Expo, to the camaraderie of meeting with peers and learning at the HR Florida Conference – HR Tampa does it well and will continue to offer programs for all levels of competencies.  As SHRM members, committed to developing exceptional business skills, HR Tampa provides the environment to develop talent, network with HR professionals, and even meet exceptional vendors/resources who become long-term business partners.  The opportunities are exceptional for those who take advantage.
