Our one-day conference at the Asia Society will bring together leading thinkers and top executives in HR, talent acquisition, diversity, employee engagement, and benefits for an engaging, up-to-the-minute conversation about how employers can build stronger bonds of trust and connection with their workers and their communities. The urgent topics will include the importance of offering career paths, developing diversity in leadership, balancing productivity with well-being, supporting working parents, and encouraging employees in community work.

From campus recruiting to the job offer, the hiring process has many steps where talent can be overlooked, blocked, or lost to competitors. What are the most effective ways in which employers can remove obstacles and boost engagement? How can they make the most of other pathways besides recruiting, including internships and referrals?
Employers who make reskilling a continuous part of their culture can cost-effectively develop the talent they need, as well as enhance their employer brand. How can companies best identify the employees who can make that shift? What are the most effective new educational techniques, which put an emphasis on active learning? How can corporate leaders promote a mindset of continuous learning and curiosity?
A competitive, innovative business can be a demanding place to work. Yet employee engagement and retention depend on empathy and compassion–especially when workers are expected to take certain risks and deliver maximum effort. What does this kind of sensitivity look like in a workplace with high expectations?
Employees, especially younger ones, care more than ever about issues like social justice and climate change. How can employers listen better to those concerns and reflect workers' values in corporate policies, volunteer programs, and philanthropic work that translates into genuine impact?
The conference will take place at the Asia Society in Houston, Texas known for Asia's arts and culture, education, sustainability, business, and technology.
