Conference Overview

Ensuring future workplaces are better workplaces for 22 years

In the 22 years since the inaugural Better Workplace Conference in Vancouver, the environment has never been so fast changing and complex as it is today. Social media, AI, and machine learning are transforming the way we work. At the same time major demographic shifts are welcoming a new generation of leaders, bringing their values, worldviews, and management styles to workplaces.

Never has the approach of this event been more relevant.

Employers are recognizing that better workplaces are built on a foundation of employee well-being. Each year this event has kept employers up to date with developments, introduced new ideas and approaches, inspired action, and encouraged reflection—because we have always believed that better workplaces are built on employee well-being.

Helping everyone on the Journey to a better workplace

This event is about the journey, not the destination. Hear about employee well-being transformation strategies that work to inspire individuals, and change work and organizations. Gain tools for personal development while learning the essentials of how to change a workplace culture. Only here will you discover some of the latest evidence based approaches to workplace wellness as well as gain a better understanding of how new technologies are changing work forever.

Three Streams, One Goal—Ensuring the Future Workplace is Built on Employee Well-Being

Each year we consult extensively to determine the most relevant and important issues for those engaged in creating better workplaces. This year we have identified three areas which combine to provide a holistic view of how to build a better workplace—focusing on work, wellness, and leadership.
