VUSHRM November Newsletter

Holiday season is in full swing, and everyone’s schedules are filling up quickly. That is why this month’s newsletter will be short and sweet. You will find a recap of our November webinar, upcoming events from both VUSHRM and some local chapters, and reminders and other opportunities. Without further ado, let’s dive in!

This month, we hosted a fan-favorite VUSHRM webinar – SHRM Competencies! Guest speaker and adjunct faculty member, Mary Sweeney, hosted this virtual event that gave an in-depth overview of the SHRM exams, what the SHRM competencies are and how they can be used in the workplace, and left time to answer any questions the attendees had about SHRM. Not only was this webinar a great opportunity to learn if the SHRM exam is right for you, but it also showed the ways in which it can be beneficial to your career. The recording of this event can be found here.
