Become Your Organization’s
Biggest Strategic Advantage
In this inspiring program, we will explore the impact that we as HR professionals can have on our organizations. We will strategically analyze our HR point of view and consider how we can drive the culture, create the organizational passion, provoke improvements, inspire possibilities and elevate our vision. Please join us for this motivating look at the impact we can produce when we lead an HREvolution!
Also, please remember our annual teddy bear drive! The UTA Student SHRM Chapter will coordinate to take the donated stuffed animals to children in hospitals and shelters at Christmastime. If you would like to donate a stuffed animal, please bring it with you to the meeting. Preferred sizes are 12” to 24”. Thank you in advance for your participation!
