"We know that change is constant. As the world speeds up, we must learn the skills and strategies to become more adaptable to it," said George Carroll, a corporate trainer and author who will speak at the conference on the topic, "Adaptability is the New Change: Five Keys to Embracing Change and Transition."

SHRM executives will hold two press briefings during the event, one on immigration reform, paid leave, flexible work, pay equity, employment of ex-offenders, and regulation; and the second on HR as a social force with new SHRM President and CEO Johnny C. Taylor, Jr.

Highlights from the 2018 Employee Benefits Survey will be released on June 19.
