How often do you hear “Thank you for what you do!”? Hopefully you hear it often, but many times, HR can be a thankless job. Rarely does someone say, “Thank you for getting me my paycheck on time!” or “Thank you for navigating through all of those legal landmines I almost stepped in!” Luckily for us, in the state of Missouri, they DO appreciate the hard work that goes into the HR profession and to show their appreciation, Governor Greitens has declared May 4th as Missouri HR Day!  While we would love to simply bask in the glory of all the attention thrown our way, that just isn’t how we do things in HR is it? Nope, HR people are givers! The Missouri SHRM State Council is coordinating a statewide HR Day of Service to encourage each local SHRM chapter to give back to their local communities.

 

SHRM-KC is partnering with United Way of Greater Kansas City to identify organizations in our community that would benefit from assistance from HR professionals. Mock interviews, resume review, interview preparation tips, general job search guidance, as well as potential HR training for the staff at the non-profit organizations that may not get any training. They are so excited for this opportunity as they have said that no one else really offers this type of assistance to their member organizations.

 

SHRM-KC is now officially over 650 members!!!!!!! Our goal is to have 150 volunteers helping the greater KC community on May 4th, MO HR Day, and we will definitely need your help!

 

Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime. – Maimonides

 

Think of the impact that you could have on someone’s life, long term, just by potentially helping them to find a job. This would be a great time to bring your HR department out to volunteer together! Volunteers don’t have to be SHRM-KC members, we simply want to give back to the community in a big way. There will be various times to volunteer in the morning, the afternoon or all day, in two hour time slots and everything will be coordinated online.  Use the REGISTER link above to sign-up.  A member of our board will be in touch with you as details are finalized!
