HR Aboard the Mariner of the Seas

Updated: Jul 18

After years of delaying the exciting event because of the pandemic, the HR Conference Cruise was finally here.

While some may think not much gets accomplished when surrounded by the trappings of a cruise, nothing could be further from the truth.

The HR Florida and Ohio SHRM State Councils partnered with Aspect Marketing to sponsor the 7th HR Conference Cruise in April. We set sail on April 23rd, 2022 for Haiti and the Bahamas on the Royal Caribbean's Mariner of the Seas.

HR Education Immersion

My experience at this conference was like none other. As a speaker, most times when you finish your presentation, you move on and head to the next conference. You might stay for the next speaker, but then it’s time to go. Out at sea, we were a captive audience. We were immersed in the HR Florida and Ohio SHRM hype – and I loved it.

Cruise attendees were eligible for 14 recertification hours, including the four “turf” webinars that happened before the cruise and included HR Florida’s own Heather Deyrieux. The conference not only added to our credentials, but it also gave each of us the opportunity to slow down and enjoy the moment.
