Presenting at NYC SHRM’s annual conference was such a transformative experience. Through events like these, NYC SHRM provides its members with invaluable workshops to keep their skills advanced as well as provide them with a unique chance to network and form relationships with a diverse group of HR professionals from various organizations.
