4:00pm - 5:00pm  Executive Networking Reception

5:00pm - 6:30pm  Discussion Topics

The New Employee Experience

As society and business begin to normalize, HR leaders have the unique opportunity to reimagine the employee experience. The future is hybrid, the purpose of the workplace will be redefined, and the concept of well-being has taken on new meaning. In this roundtable discussion, CHROs explore the intersection of employee experience and company culture — and how to attract and retain top talent amidst radical shifts in employee expectations. 

Topic 1: Remapping the employee journey    

  • How are you weaving the employee experience into the design or implementation of your return-to-workplace strategy? 

  • What tools and technologies have you implemented to improve communications, collaboration, and connectivity between employees? 

  • How are you assessing the impact of your employee experience investments? 

Topic 2: Preparing for the new war in talent

  • How have your recruiting or EVP/branding strategies shifted to navigate the new realities of the labor market? 

  • How are you designing a long-term workforce model that prioritizes employee well-being and equity?

  • What is your vision for the future workplace and how does it reflect the workplace’s role in the employee experience?

6:30pm - 7:00pm  Networking Break

7:00pm - 8:00pm  Summary Discussion & Dinner

8:00pm - 9:00pm  Social Hour
