Press release: Utah Human Resources State Council announces 2019 executive conference

The Utah Human Resources State Council has announced the 2019 Leading HR Executive Summit. The summit, held in St. George Utah, is a day and a half of gathering of HR executives and leaders from Utah, Nevada, and Arizona, scheduled for March 28 and 29, 2019.

In a business intelligence survey, more than half (58%) of companies said they base most of their regular business decisions on gut feel or experience, rather than on data and information.

Are you confident that your organization and your leaders consistently makes good business decisions?  Is there a clear link between using data and information for decision-making and achieving strategic advantage over your competitors? How do you do that consistently and effectively? By attending Leading HR Executive Summit in St. George sponsored by Utah Human Resources State Council.

At the Leading HR Executive Summit, senior HR leaders and executives will:

  • Experience the opportunity to learn from other HR experts the critical thinking skills that drive business success.
  • Attend thought-provoking keynote sessions, followed by a deep dive in small group “think tanks” designed to help them develop actionable strategies to address common – and critical – business decisions in their organizations.
  • Discuss their organizational challenges and hurdles confidentially, benefit from others’ perspectives, and create a supportive cohort.
  • Enjoy informal social opportunities to start and strengthen personal and professional relationships.

At the conclusion of the conference, these executives will be ready to take specific, well-defined steps to guide and strengthen their organizations.

Leading HR will have nationally acclaimed facilitators focusing on some of today’s most significant business decisions facing HR professionals:
