Alice Dendinger, SPHR
The Conference is pleased to recognize Alice Dendinger, SPHR, as the 2014 inductee into the HRSWC Speaker Hall of Fame.
In October 2002, Alice assisted HRSWC in launching the first “HRCI Certification Crash Course,” which began her speaking affiliation with The Conference. Since then, Alice has established a reputation as one of The Conference’s most popular speakers, consistently receiving exceptionally high ratings from attendees. She has continued to take part in the Crash Course program in addition to conducting pre-conference workshops and concurrent educational sessions.
Alice has more than 30 years of experience in the field of human resource management and organizational development. She received her first position in human resources in 1980, as she says, “by divine intervention.” Alice has focused her career on strategic management, organizational development, employee relations and communication, mediation and conflict resolution, performance management and assisting leaders, managers, supervisors and direct reports at every level to “work better together.” She is often called upon to “transform the organizational culture.”
In 1999, Alice served as the president of the Austin Human Resource Management Association (AHRMA), growing the organization to a record 1001 members. As AHRMA president, she also accepted a position with Texas SHRM. This began a 10-year career volunteer role which was highlighted in 2007 and 2008 when she served as state director of Texas SHRM. She has been invited to participate as a luncheon speaker or keynote to almost all 30+ chapters in Texas and is considered one of the most active members on the SHRM Speakers Bureau. Alice is a lifetime SPHR and has helped thousands of other professionals become certified and recertified.
For the past 12 years, she has led the Alice Dendinger Alliance Group, providing HR consulting, coaching and mediation services. In addition, Alice recently entered a joint venture with Your HR Group in Austin with the creation of PivotU – a training, learning and transformation company.
