Themes

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?

Conscious Coaching: Getting in Touch With the Emotional Factors

Insightful leaders recognize that coaching is not just about strategies and tactics, but about the employee's mindset, well-being, and resilience. Without getting into psychotherapy, how can coaching be applied in a more holistic way, giving more personalized guidance? Can this approach bring benefits for the whole organization, including a greater sense of inclusion and engagement?

Is Your Company Attractive to a Diverse Workforce?

In this labor market, workers are picking you as much as you're picking them. What are the key elements that make an employer welcoming to a diverse labor pool, from personalized benefits to a sense of belonging? How much does career growth and employee retention add to a company's allure? Instead of looking for a "culture fit" in new employees, how can companies make their workplace better-suited to diversity?

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?


Venue

The conference will take place at Seattle Art Museum, a vast gallery and event space in the heart of Seattle.
