People with different skills connecting together online and working on the same project, remote working and freelancing concept

It’s not a secret that the COVID pandemic brought a lot of new challenges and changes to the different work industries. Some of those changes have come to stay. One of them is the work from home modality.

Though this way of working has many benefits, it also means that companies and employees must deal with things like tax and immigration. So, among the many things you already have to know and keep updated with for your work, this is yet another one. And we understand it’s not easy to learn about these things.

That’s why, if you’re looking for a great way to learn more about this, we recommend checking Mile High SHRM’s next event. You’ll learn a lot from the best in the field. You won’t regret it!

About Mile High SHRM

Mile High Society for Human Resource Management (Mile High SHRM) was born in 1938 and since then they’ve been helping Human Resources professionals. They do this by educating on everything related to the HR industry. In fact, their mission is to “Engage. Educate. Empower”.

They have more than a thousand members that help them achieve their goals and mission. These members are from different companies and have different jobs related to Human Resources. So, they can tackle any challenge from different perspectives.

One of their ways to help keep educating HR professionals is through their SHRM Certification Preparation course. It will help you be more prepared for the final exam to get your SHRM certification. And why wouldn’t you want to get this certification?

After all, “SHRM certifications are unique, as they are the only behavioral competency-based programs in the field”. It’s recommended to get one if you want to be seen as well prepared, “[…] ready to lead” and like they care about their career.

This course offers you an instructor that’s been SHRM certified to guide you through the course, answer your doubts and give you tips for the exam. They’ll even give you sample test questions. When you register, you’ll get the SHRM Learning System.

This is a system that “[…] provides a personalized roadmap that combines in-depth HR knowledge with real-life situations…” So you’ll be more prepared. The course is instructed twice a year, during Spring and Fall. So keep an eye open for the next one.

If this is an organization you admire and would like to support, you can become a member. To get the Mile High SHRM membership, you’ll also have to get the National SHRM memberships. Don’t worry about the long process or paperwork, both are purchased together.

This is actually a great opportunity, because you’ll get benefits from both memberships. Some of these are personalized content, discounts for some events, updates on HR legislation, access to the career center, and more.

If you prefer, you can be a sponsor. There are different sponsorship opportunities to choose from. The first one is for those that would like to be part of the 2024 Annual HR Conference. The second option is “for organizations looking for discount pricing”. The last one is for those that want to “[…] choose exactly what sponsorships they want…”
