SHRM Conference Once Again Included Hygiene Kit Event

Like many organizations, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) wants to make a positive community impact when they gather for a conference. And for the second consecutive year, SHRM worked with Clean the World to make that positive impact.

During last month’s SHRM 2014 Annual Conference & Exposition at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, attendees participated in a ONE Project event to assemble hygiene kits for people struggling to meet their family’s basic needs. At last year’s SHRM conference in Chicago, members assembled nearly 3,000 hygiene kits for Children’s Home + Aid, which serves about 40,000 needy children and families throughout Illinois, and the Chicago Help Initiative, which serves meals to the less fortunate on the city’s North Side.

Immediately after the 2013 event, SHRM’s Laura Liles was already looking ahead to this year.

“The project was such a hit,” Liles told Clean the World in July of 2013. “We assembled close to 3,000 kits, and I think we will be able to assemble even more [in 2014]. We definitely want to incorporate another ONE Project build into next year’s annual conference. It actually works out perfectly because we will be in Orlando.”

This year the group assembled 3,500 hygiene kits for needy individuals and families in Central Florida.

SHRM is the world’s largest membership organization devoted to human resource management. Representing more than 275,000 members in over 160 countries, the society is the leading provider of resources to serve the needs of HR professionals and advance the professional practice of human resource management. SHRM has more than 575 affiliated chapters within the United States, and subsidiary offices in China, India and United Arab Emirates.

Gala Sponsor Spotlight: The American Cleaning Institute

The American Cleaning Institute, formerly the Soap and Detergent Association, has signed on as a Silver Sponsor for the Inaugural Clean the World Gala, which is scheduled Saturday, Nov. 5, 2011 at The Peabody Orlando.

Nancy Bock, vice president of consumer education and meetings at ACI, sees the Gala as a business networking opportunity in the hospitality industry that “just makes sense” on so many levels.

“Our institute has been in existence since 1926, and we’ve focused on health and hygiene issues that relate to proper sanitation since the beginning,” Bock says. “An opportunity to partner with Clean the World and support this Gala is a win-win for us, and the partnership will improve living conditions for others around the world.”

Bock says ACI has been mindful of Clean the World since the first time she heard Clean the World co-founder Shawn Seipler speak about the “global hygiene revolution” at the 2010 Global Handwashing Day event in Washington, D.C.

“The moment I met Shawn and heard of the great work Clean the World was doing, I knew this was something we wanted to do,” she says. “ACI can be a gateway to opportunities for our industry to support Clean the World in many ways. All of the groups with which we are associated – NGOs, volunteer organizations, schools, nursing associations, etc. – can get involved with Clean the World in an important and meaningful way.”

Bock says she and her ACI colleagues intend to mix and mingle at the Gala among hospitality industry executives, vendors, and supporters of Clean the World.

“We’re very excited about Clean the World from a social sustainability perspective,” Bock says. “The Gala provides a tremendous opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of the people who have embraced Clean the World’s mission. By becoming a Silver Sponsor at the Inaugural Clean the World Gala, we emphasize our desire to support society and promote hygiene for better living.

“It’s a healthy relationship,” she says. “It just fits like a comfortable shoe.”
