Compensation & Benefits Conference

Join us for our Compensation & Benefits Conference on Thursday, July 18, 2019 at the College of The Holy Cross Conference Center in Worcester, MA.


We will focus on topics such as leveraging metrics to define how great your benefits are (or aren't), managing paid leaves, and building a business case for developing a learning culture.

Every year, our Compensation & Benefits Conferenece brings together experts in the areas of total rewards, compensation, benefits and work-life balance to share their knowledge. This conference features our most robust vendor showcase to help find solutions to any organizations challenges.

The challenges of attracting, retaining and engaging talent remain a constant for HR professionals. Increasingly complex government regulations add to the challenges of compliance and risk management. Our conference provides dynamic and critical themes to meet these new and ongoing challenges.
