The Better Workplace Conference 2018

Wednesday October 10 - Thursday October 11 2018 Venue TBD Ottawa, Ontario

Conference Overview

Join us for Canada's foremost event that will help you build a better workplace.

For more than 20 years, this event has been the premier forum for introducing and exploring concrete actions you can take to improve your workplace. This conference is not about who provides the best benefits package or who has the highest employee engagement scores. It’s about sharing experiences and learning from thought leaders and employers who are committed to making better workplaces. You will learn practical strategies to improve how your leaders lead, and to better the experience of your employees and your customers, built on a strong foundation of better wellness for your organization.

BWC Themes

After extensive consultation for 2017, we have identified three themes that capture the essentials of what it takes to become a better workplace now and in the future:

  • Better Wellness
  • Better Leaders
  • Better Experience

From real success stories on employee wellness to examining the future of leadership as a new generation moves through the workforce, there will be no shortage of practical takeaways and inspiring conversations. Learn from leading Canadian organizations as they share how they are creating a better workplace, and what you can do to ensure you measure up.
