2017 Annual Sr. Executive Retreat (Orange County area)


The theme of our 2017 Retreat is HR Blueprint for Innovation. Many HR organizations are searching for answers on how to keep ahead of the challenges created by digital transformation. Our speakers will explore the impact of rapidly advancing technologies on the future workplace. We will also collaborate on innovative solutions to become catalysts for organizational change by redesigning talent management practices, leveraging service delivery models, and rethinking the employee experience. We will examine a blueprint to explore new perspectives for organization, department, and personal growth through four lenses: be digital, be human, be well, and be generational.


To inspire your innovative self, we will have several organized activities for your relaxation and rejuvenation.
