Paylocity rolled out the red carpet for clients and prospects at the 2018 Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Conference and Exposition in Chicago.

Blog Post

Another year, another Annual Society for Human Resource Management Conference & Exposition – this time in our very own backyard Chicago, Illinois. We had a blast rolling out the red carpet for our clients and SHRM18 attendees, and would like to thank everyone who stopped by our booth! Here are a few highlights from this year’s SHRM conference:

Product Demonstrations

SHRM attendees started their VIP journey at booth 155 by participating in either a group or one-on-one demo. We loved seeing attendees explore our HCM solutions and talk with Paylocity experts about ways our software can help their organization.

Photo Booth

Our photo booth was a huge hit! As attendees made their way down the Paylocity red carpet, they had the opportunity to strike a pose in front of the camera and take home a memento. We had many payroll and HR stars stop by for a glam shot.

VIP Swag and Giveaways

The VIP experience concluded at our swag counter. Attendees chose between a mug or t-shirt, and even had the chance to sample a Chicago staple, Garrett’s popcorn. Visitors to the booth also walked away with champagne stress relievers, computer decals, and custom bowtie candies!

Overall, it was another fantastic year at SHRM. We had a lot of engaging conversations, gave away a ton of swag, and most importantly discussed how Paylocity’s HCM solutions help HR and payroll professionals take a more active role in driving strategic initiatives within their organization.
