Workers and the Corporate Values Revolution

Two years into the pandemic, what has the workplace revolution revealed? Our one-day conference at the Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture will bring together leading thinkers and top executives in HR, hybrid work, diversity, benefits, social impact and employee engagement for an up-to-the-minute conversation about how organizations can build stronger bonds of trust with their workers and their communities. The event will focus on such topics as creating equity in a hybrid workplace, balancing productivity with well-being, offering better career paths, developing diversity in leadership, and supporting working parents. Among the timely questions: How can companies stay true to their core values, and accountable to their stakeholders, while making enormous changes?


From Day One is a Recertification Provider for SHRM and HRCI. This session is eligible for 4 credits from both organizations. The Activity IDs will be sent to attendees after the conclusion of the session.

Improving the Talent Pipeline, From End to End

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?

How to Make Reskilling Part of a Corporate Culture of Learning

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?

How High-performing Workplaces Can Show Compassion, Too

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?

Recruiting and Retaining Workers Through Social Impact

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?

Making Work Meaningful in an Uncertain World

Work has caused burnout, to be sure, but it can also bring a sense of purpose, satisfaction, and even stability. What is the role of companies to bring a sense of meaning to their enterprises at a time when workers are doing a lot of soul-searching about the role of work in their lives? How can employers connect their business with the things that employees care about?

Making Your Company a Magnet for a Diverse Workforce

More than ever, workers are attracted to inclusive, diverse company cultures. How can companies make DEI a foundation of the hiring process and the corporate culture. What are the most effective ways to stay accountable and follow through on commitments to DEI?


The conference will take place at the Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture. A 13-acre complex of renovated military buildings on the waterfront offering venues for the arts.
