SHRM@QU is a local student chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management. We provide students from across the University with the opportunity to gain knowledge and insight into the effective management of human capital in the field of Human Resource Management through affiliation with the New Haven Chapter, the CT State Council, and the national SHRM organization.

The objectives of this chapter include:

*Promoting the exchange of work-related experience of established business professionals with the theoretical academic perspectives of student and faculty members through open forums and information exchanges.

*Encouraging the acquisition, growth, and continuation of our respective careers in human resource management through expanded knowledge, camaraderie, respect, and mutual support among chapter members and through our affiliation with SHRM and our sponsoring chapter.

*Provide a pool of human resource management leaders for perpetuation of the chapter and of SHRM.

*Function as an important vehicle for promoting the field of human resource management to students.

On Tuesday, February 24th, SHRM@QU hosted a workshop for members with Prof. Trish Kelly. Prof. Kelly hosted an interactive workshop on tips and techniques for understanding generational differences and how to work effectively. Members discussed their experiences, challenges, and triumphs of working with other generations. They also discussed stereotypes about their Millennial generation as well as other generations and how these can lead to team conflict.

Prof. Kelly worked with our members to develop their generational competence so that they will be better able to adapt and engage in effective communication techniques. She emphasized the values and strengths each generation brings to the workplace and urged our members to focus on these strengths rather than on stereotypes about weaknesses. Members were encouraged to seek out mentors, ask questions, and remain flexible. By recognizing and appreciating the unique contributions different generations bring, employees can really thrive together and be successful.
