BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

SHRM annual conference draws 15,000 attendees in Las Vegas


LAS VEGAS—There were 15,000 paid attendees at the Society for Human Resource Management's 59th annual conference and exposition held June 24-27 in Las Vegas.

Human resource executives attended a wide variety of sessions on employment, human resources and the law, skill development, strategic management and total rewards programs. For the first time, the sessions were paperless as participants were able to download session materials before the conference.

Speakers included seven-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong; Linda Alvarado, president and chief executive officer of Denver-based Alvarado Construction Inc. and co-owner of the Colorado Rockies baseball team; Dan Pink, author of "Free Agent Nation and A Whole New Mind;" and Erin Gruwell, the teacher depicted in the film "Freedom Writers."

Next year's conference is scheduled for June 22-25 in Chicago.
