2018 HR Cruises - February 5-10, 2018

Sail on the high seas with your HR Colleagues from Fort Lauderdale to Falmouth, Jamaica and Labadee, Haiti

Our Next HR Cruise - February 5-10, 2018

We'll again be partnering with the Ohio SHRM State Council for the next HR Conference Cruise in February 2018! Join us from February 5 - 10, 2018. We'll depart Fort Lauderdale with ports of call in Falmouth, Jamaica and Labadee, Haiti (Royal Caribbean's private destination). Along the way we'll have a well-rounded menu of educational sessions to accomodate your time on the ship while providing networking opportunities outside of the scheduled sessions.

The Independence of the Seas, a large fifteen deck cruise ship, will leave port from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The cruise will be five days allowing the HR professional to enjoy the getaway as well as earn recertification credits and learning from a variety of speakers - many of which are nationally-known.
