HR Superpowers!!

The theme of the 2022 HR Summit was "How Human Resources Can Harness Its Superpowers to Bring Us into a New Future”.

There is little doubt that the world of work has changed since the last in-person HR Summit in 2019. HR professionals have been on the frontlines of those workplace changes. There is also little doubt that HR professionals have shown what we are made of by tackling extraordinary challenges and leading our organizations into the future!

The 2022 HR Summit was about coming together to celebrate the victories from the past several years, learn and develop new superpowers to prepare us for the future, and build a community that supports us individually and collectively to help us prevail in whatever is next!
