Not sure of the benefits of attending the 2019 HR Florida State Conference?

Let the HR Florida team show you why you can't miss out!  



2nd Annual HR Florida 5K
6:00 PM   

We all remember it was hot last year, so we took your advice and will be hosting this event starting at 6pm on Sunday August 25, 2019. This year’s event will take place at the beautiful Falcon’s Fire Golf Course located just minutes away from the Gaylord Palms (transportation will be provided).

This is an easy, fun event where participants can walk or run.

(FYI: 5K = 3.1 miles. If you walk a 20-minute mile, it will take just over 1 hour to complete) through a great golf course with amazing scenery.

We encourage you, your friends, and family to participate and fund-raise. (You do not have to attend the conference to participate in the 5K or to donate to this year's charity, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention).

HR Collier July 2019 Meeting Announcement

Transforming Your Employee Experience into a Culture of Engagement


Creating a WOW experience for employees is just as important as creating great experiences for your customer base.  Understanding, managing and improving organizational culture in an age of constant change is the next “big thing” HR professionals will face in the war for talent. Motivating employees to give their ALL each day can vary in terms of having the right mix of challenging work, performance feedback and total rewards incentives.  As culture change agents, HR practitioners have an opportunity to create employee experiences that will positively impact your company’s brand and ability to attract and retain employees. 


During this interactive session attendees will be provided with strategic yet practical examples of how to transform their overall employee experience.

Participants will also:

(1)    Examine best practices of small and large employers who have created a culture of organizational success
