The Ansay & Associates Human Resources team had a productive time attending the Wisconsin State Council SHRM Conference, dubbed “Cracking the HR Code,” from October 13-15 at the Kalahari Resort in the Wisconsin Dells.
The Wisconsin SHRM Council represents HR professionals in the state and is supported by the national SHRM council. Its mission is to share expertise and facilitate thought leadership to advance human capital practices across Wisconsin.
Our Ansay & Associates team, led by Emily Smith, Lisa Neumann-Pudlo, and Brian Hazelett, made quite a splash at the event, engaging eager attendees with the famous “Wheel of WOW.” Additionally, our team won the “Swagmaster” award for the best swag giveaways at the event.
Keynote speakers at the conference included Laurie Ruettiman’s “Leading HR in a Post-COVID Environment,” Abbey Johnston and Greg Mutch’s “Dare to Lead,” and former Green Bay Packers wide receiver Antonio Freeman’s “The Journey.”
Major takeaways from the addresses included how to build a strong company culture, how to take bold and healthy risks, and strategies for overcoming unforeseen challenges.
“The conference was a tremendous success,” said Smith. “We’re eager to get back to the office and begin implementing some of the fun and engaging ideas we learned.”
