BOSTON, MA — Feb 23, 2011 — The International Association for Human Resources Information Management (IHRIM), the world’s leading clearinghouse for the HRIM (Human Resource Information Management) industry, is pleased to announce the return of IHRIM 2011 Conference and Technology Exposition. The annual event will be held May 15-18, 2011 at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center on the Potomac, just minutes outside of Washington DC.
For more than 30 years, IHRIM’s annual event has brought together international thought leaders in the HRIM community with business leaders to exchange innovative ideas and share best practices, as well as build and strengthen valuable relationships. The 2011 conference will be no exception, providing attendees with more than 50 educational sessions designed to increase knowledge of best practices and trends on topics such as workforce metrics & analytics, social media and Web 2.0, talent management, Software as a Service (SaaS), workforce planning and recruiting, data privacy, and HR systems selection & implementation.
“In these times of economic hardship, this year’s Conference and Technology Exposition is more important than ever,” said Lynne Mealy, CEO of IHRIM. “The IHRIM 2011 Conference and Technology Exposition is a must-attend event — especially as companies proceed in 2011 with cautious optimism and start to look at how HR systems can support their overall business strategy. This is why the conference is making it essential to provide the information and tools companies need to maintain workplace quality, increase productivity and avoid wasteful spending.”
Conference speakers will include representatives from leading corporations at Dell Computers, Oracle Corporation, the Chicago Cubs, Johnson Controls, Sony Music Entertainment, the Mayo Clinic and Alegent Health. Topics include workforce analytics, SaaS, social media, user security, system administration, HRIS staffing analysis, and much more.

“Developed by a select group of HR systems professionals, the conference educational program is guaranteed to provide an exceptional learning experience for attendees,” said Nov Omana, Chairman of the Board for IHRIM. “Whether you want to focus on the nuts and bolts of HR systems, explore hot topics in the industry or learn about the cutting edge technology in your market, you’ll find everything you need to solve your immediate challenges and grow professionally.”
The IHRIM Conference and Technology Exposition will unveil a variety of new HR technology products and services across thousands of net square feet of exhibit space. The IHRIM Conference Content Review Committee has ensured a balance of sessions for the annual event — fundamental versus strategic; topic focus; case studies versus lectures.
