The theme of our 2016 Retreat is “HR Disruptive Innovation and the New Employee Experience”.

Multiple global forces are reshaping the workplace, the workforce and work itself. We are now seeing the impact of digital technology and the on-demand economy influencing employees of all ages to expect the consumer experience at work. How does HR help drive disruption while creating a compelling employee experience in this new environment? We will explore building resilient organizations and how to lead the innovative process to build a high performance organization.

We will collaborate on ideas for reshaping the workplace through innovative talent management, employee development, collaborative communication and personal well-being strategies to revolutionize the employee experience. To stimulate your creative thinking, we will have several organized activities for your relaxation and rejuvenation.
