Our Testimonials

Check out what some of our attendees said about HR Retail:

HR Retail provided great insight into new things companies are doing and the vendors were great. Loved the charity contest, the app, the panel discussion, and no sales pitches! Love the variety of innovative vendors you have introduced to us!

Kathy Martin, People Director, Charlotte Russe - 2018 attendee

I enjoyed the venue, and how the presentations were kept short, diversity of speakers in terms of types of retailers, vendor Village, scavenger hunt, and app for agenda.

Jennifer Sullivan, Regional Director, HR Business Partner - Macy's Logistics & Operations West Region - 2018 attendee

It was Great! Tons of content, innovative ideas and an amazing amount of sharing. HR Retail was a far superior conference to the national SHRM conference I have been to multiple times.

Andrea Stankard, Hr Manager, Johnson Fitness & Wellness - 2018 attendee

The opportunity to connect with like-minded and like-sized organizations was priceless. Peer to peer learning is always the most impactful.

Jeff Brown, Manager, Brand and Product Training, Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics - 2018 attendee

It was so nice to connect with HR professionals that experience the same triumphs & struggles as us. It was enlightening to hear their ideas & initiatives that worked well in retail specifically

Philip Newman, Senior Manager, Talent Strategy, Home Depot

The HR Retail conference 2017 in San Diego was first rate! The speakers were smart authentic and relevant. The networking and time and experiences were really valuable. Having a conference devoted to HR in retail with real issues with real experience and real solutions was invaluable. To add to that, the venue and the organization of the event was excellent.

Shauna Grinke, Head of People Culture, Lush Handmade Cosmetics, North America

Great conference, left feeling informed, educated and equipped with actionable strategies. I walked away with application more than theory

Anel Rosales, Human Resources Director, Skechers

Excellent range of speakers and topics – Bonobos, Macy’s, Kate Spade, Home Depot and more. The presentations were both high level, but strategic and thought provoking at the same time. No sales pitches that you get at other events. I’m walking away with a book full of actionable notes. HR Retail was immensely useful for our company.
