The future of work virtual event
The future of work virtual event

In an increasingly distributed and remote world of work, what is the role of place? We believe that there is power in creating spaces both virtual and physical for employees and the growing freelance workforce.  

Return on Creativity: The Future Workforce will blend a vision of the near future with practical ideas for today’s workforce leaders and HR professionals. The conference includes keynotes, panels and breakout sessions that discuss the growing need for diversity and inclusion, the value of hybrid workforces of contract specialists and full-time employees, and how virtual and physical spaces can be used effectively. Our goal is to bring together thought leaders, business leaders, and practitioners within the workforce development, HR, and employee experience professions to learn, interact, and create new ideas together.


Why you should attend:

This virtual event will feature thought leaders and industry experts discussing the future of the workforce, and how current and future trends will affect employment and growth of companies over the coming months. 

This will be discussed in a combination of panel discussions and breakout sessions held virtually March 2-3, 2021. Each attendee will get a digital copy of The Agile Workforce by Greg Kihlström, to be released February 2021
