The Energy of WorkHuman

Graphical description of WorkHuman timingRecognize This! – As we prepare for the WorkHuman event next week, I am looking forward to the shared inspiration that the movement has created.

As many of you know, next week is the main event of the WorkHuman movement, where we will bring together a full slate of amazing speakers, thought leaders, academic researchers, and industry influencers. I personally can’t wait for the rush of inspiration and energy that will come not only from the speakers themselves, but from everyone in attendance actively looking for ways to make work more human.

The conference is such a great opportunity for us to share our insights and experiences with one another, as we push towards unleashing the power of humanity at work from each of our own diverse backgrounds. There truly is something for everyone at WorkHuman (be sure to check out the full agenda of sessions, opportunities to network and learn, and of course, revitalize).

If you’re planning on attending the conference, be sure to stop by and say Hi. We’d love to meet you in person. Even if you can’t make it this year, you can still join the movement at, where a team will be live-blogging the latest updates and key insights from across the conference.

I’ll go ahead and get the conversation started: what do you most want to get out of the WorkHuman event?
