HPW Summit Update: Great Speakers AND Strategic HRCI Credits, Too

There are lots of good reasons to attend TLNT’s High Performance Workforce Summit May 6-7 in Atlanta, but just in case great speakers with great titles and great insights weren’t enough, here’s one more:

Strategic recertification credits from HRCI, the HR Certification Institute.

ERE Media, the parent company of TLNT, and HRCI, have announced “a partnership to promote HRCI certification.” As part of this collaboration, “HRCI has agreed to provide strategic recertification credits to delegates who will be attending ERE Media’s TLNT High Performance Workforce Summit, May 6-7, 2015 in Atlanta … Additionally, HRCI will promote TLNT’s High Performance Workforce Summit to certified HR professionals as an opportunity to maintain their certification.”

A great way to earn strategic recertification credits

There has been a lot of debate about HR certifications in the news this past year, but whatever you have read or heard, the HRCI certifications remain the gold standard for human resource professionals to validate their professional expertise, and finding opportunities to acquire strategic credits to apply towards recertification is always a challenge.HPWS15_header_2

That’s the beauty of this partnership — and it’s another great reason to attend TLNT’s High Performance Workforce Summit in May. Not only do you get to hear from smart talent management leaders (like Stacey Valy Panayiotou, VP of Global Talent & Development at Coca-Cola, or Jeri Buchholz, NASA’s Chief Human Capital Officer), and great HR thinkers (like Dave Ulrich, “one of the world’s leading human capital/HR experts” according to the Harvard Business Review), but you ALSO get strategic recertification credits from HRCI, too.

And if that’s not enough reasons to join us in Atlanta May 6-7, here’s one more: If you register by Feb. 28, you get $300 off the regular registration.

Last year’s High Performance Workforce Summit was a critical success, and attendees gave it one of the highest scores of any conference that ERE Media has ever done in 15 years of putting on events. We expect the 2015 High Performance Workforce Summit, at Atlanta’s Omni CNN Center Hotel (a great venue) to be better still.

By the way, here is a little more on the partnership between ERE Media and HRCI that makes these recertification credits at the High Performance Workforce Summit May 6-7 possible. From the HRCI press release:
