HR Healthcare Virtual Event                         

The Virtual Event for HR Leaders in Healthcare

May 11 - 12, 2021 | 12:00pm - (ET)

Build A Winning People Strategy

The healthcare industry has continued to adapt throughout the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Everything from talent management to how you interact with your team has rapidly changed as we all navigate these uncertain times.

HR Healthcare is a WFH friendly forum bringing together HR leaders at the nation's top health systems and hospitals covering a range of topics affecting HR strategy and talent management, including telework, employee communication, training or re-training – and of course crisis management as we navigate these unchartered waters.

We want to provide you with insights and resources from your peers working through unprecedented challenges at their organizations.

Leading Content. Insightful Conversations. Creative Solutions.

83% of our previous HR Healthcare Virtual Event attendees said they will implement 2-3 great ideas from the event  in the next 6-12 months

Hear From A Variety of Experts, Debating Together

Learn from multiple, live conversations so you gain unbiased perspectives on what's working right now. (They might even disagree on some points - but you'll get the full picture.)




We Didn't Build This Overnight

We have been uniting the HR communities for the past 5 years - you'll experience the same quality of information, the presentations, and the format itself.


Finally, a Virtual Event Where You Can INTERACT

Use live chat and virtual Q&As to benchmark and connect with peers to beat challenges together. You can be an active participant - or just sit back and take notes - its up to you!
