Build A Winning People Strategy

2020 is a year like no other. A global pandemic forced executives to operate from home and a movement for corporate diversity called on many companies to take a stance on inclusivity in their workplace. As an HR community, we’ve seen that no industry is pandemic proof and we can all strive for a more welcoming work environment moving forward.

The HR360 Virtual Event will give you tips, tricks and lessons learned from the top minds in employee engagement and talent acquisition in financial services, healthcare, life sciences and retail.

Through easily accessible presentations, group panels, interviews and Q&A’s, you’ll learn the strategies you need to turn challenges into opportunities during a time of crisis.
