The 2018 HR Acuity® Employee Relations Roundtable

Tuesday, April 10, 2 PM to Wednesday, April 11, 4:30 PM

The Ritz Carlton

White Plains, NY

The HR Acuity® Employee Relations Roundtable is an innovative, one-of-a-kind event for Chief Human Resource Officers and Leaders of Employee Relations. Imagine an interactive discussion with experienced HR practitioners from institutions around the country who will be discussing the employee relations analytics, organizational design, and trending employee relations issues. The HR Acuity® Roundtable facilitates dialogue, encourages sharing, and offers a unique platform to interact with other senior HR professionals about best-practice employee relations. With a day and a half of interactive sessions, the roundtable promises to motivate practitioners to reconsider their established approaches to today’s toughest HR challenges and leave with a toolkit of ideas and strategies. The conversation will continue over cocktails and dinner at the end of day one. Each participant will also receive a bio book containing contact details for all the participants, so the networking can continue long after the event is over.
