Oui Will See You in Paris


Who would have guessed that the city of love is also the city of HR technology?

This year’s HR Tech World conference will be held in Paris again on Tuesday – Wednesday (October 25-26) of next week. And if by chance you’re attending the show, Globoforce will have a few sessions for you to choose from, depending on your area of interest.

For sweet enthusiasts, drop by stand #217 in the expo hall and we’ll be sure to give you something sweet to get you through the day.

For data gurus, don’t miss joint sessions with Globoforce and IBM on Tuesday at 2:10 p.m. and Wednesday at 1:40 p.m. at stand #315 for a session on, “Employee Experience: A New Global Index to Build a More Human Workplace.” Kevin Mullins from Globoforce and Jay Dorio from IBM will reveal new findings from a study of more than 23,000 employees in 45 countries that shows the impact of employee experience on discretionary effort, intent to stay, and performance.

For product people, Neal Bruce from Globoforce will give a demo on Tuesday at 2:55 p.m. in room 252 titled, “How Modern Social Recognition Works and its Impact on an Organization’s Bottom Line.” You’ll learn more about our award-winning software-as-a-service offering and how it creates stronger, more human cultures with measurable increases to engagement, retention, and productivity.

For HR leaders and practitioners, we are thrilled to have Jennifer Lepird, senior director, rewards, at Symantec, at the show to share, “The Symantec Journey: Unifying Culture through Change.” Many companies today feel growing pains during mergers and acquisitions. You’ll learn how Symantec evolved from a “culture of many cultures” to one where all employees are appreciated for what they do in line with the company’s values. Jennifer will present on Wednesday at 12:05 p.m. in room 243.

Of course, if you won’t be at the show next week, not to worry. We’ll be live tweeting our highlights and key takeaways from all of the sessions at @globoforce and @se_payne. We’ll also post an overall wrap-up here on the blog when the show is over (just like last year).
