"I have over 25 years of Operations and Human resources experience and I have attended the Missouri Employee Conference every year since it began, and it has become a must attend event for me. The Missouri Employee Conference introduces the hottest, most timely topics that all Leaders no matter their role in the company, need to do their jobs well. While traditionally a Human Resources, Operations, Talent Acquisitions event, I truly believe a leader at any level in a company could benefit as the entire conference is dedicated to hot topics regarding Missouri Employment. Whether the topic is where to find top talent to the biggest legal issues in employment the Missouri Employee Conference has it covered with the latest and greats speakers and workshops. In this talent shortage, very litigious and every changing workplace environment we all must attend an event like the one The Missouri Employee Conference offers. I recommend you attend the Missouri Employee Conference."
