For as long as I can remember, ISG Advisors has been a WisHHRA Conference sponsor. And if I remember correctly, there used to be two events: a spring conference and a fall conference. ISG, then known as WHA Financial Solutions, often sponsored a Wednesday afternoon golf outing. Things are a little different these days – there’s only a spring conference now, and there’s no longer a formal golf outing. But one thing has remained the same – this conference is a great way for health care human resources professionals to get together.
Attendance seemed a little higher at the 2015 conference, which was held mid-April, and that made it so much fun to watch people reconnect with their HR peers. It was also great to see that many seasoned HR pros (and conference attendees) brought at least one other HR specialist from their office.
Thursday’s opening presentation by Cy Wakeman was enjoyable, and was filled with humor and lots of good ideas for HR. I also think Wakeman’s message can easily be applied to any every day situation – helping employees, and even families, work better together. There were also a variety of concurrent sessions held throughout the conference on a variety of topics.
New to this year’s event was a Thursday evening reception that included a casino night and entertainment from Wisconsin’s own Road Trip. ISG Advisors, LMC Insurance, and LifeLock were pleased to help make this event possible. While I missed that event, Jon, Michelle, and Forrest from ISG attended, as did Dana from LMC Insurance and it sounds like a good time was had by all.
The annual WisHHRA conference is an event ISG looks forward to each year, and we’re pleased to continue our long-held tradition of supporting this conference. Putting an event like this together each year takes a lot of effort, but I think it’s a worthwhile effort for both attendees and sponsors alike.

I wish to thank all of the WisHHRA members who stopped by ISG’s display or approached our team members to say hello, learn more about our firm, and to offer their thanks for ISG’s support. We are grateful for the business opportunities, enjoy getting to know each of you, and look forward to a long-lasting partnership.
