2016 Event

The 2016 edition of The Better Workplace conference celebrated 20 years of creating better workplaces. Change professionals, HR leaders, workplace wellness champions, corporate culture experts and senior management from organizations across the country came together to focus on the 2016 theme: making a difference through transformation.

2016’s overarching theme of transformation narrowed in on three streams: better work, better health, and better you; allowing delegates to tailor their experience to fit their organizational and personal needs. 2016 carried the momentum from the previous years, aiming to celebrate the successes and inspire new ones.

We hope you will join us in Halifax on November 6-7, 2017 for The Better Workplace Conference 2017.
