#HRTechConf 2016: LIVE from Chicago! #HRfit

Wellness and #HRfit

intrepidHR decided to gain a greater understanding of wellness: how it impacts employees, the employers, and the bottom line. What, ultimately, brings personal, departmental, or organizational success for both employees and employers? Finding answers is our goal. We will uncover thoughts and ideas about wellness during out livestream broadcast at HR Tech, sharing initiatives, thoughts, successes, failures, challenges, technologies, and numerous ideas of what it means to be #HRfit – what it means to have your human resources department part of that success, part of a well-run department, part of employee satisfaction, part of the human engagement at a successful company.

We still believe that any organization’s greatest asset is its people, its talent. There is no product or service ever created or provided that is better than the human heart or human mind.

HRTechConf is home to the world’s largest Expo of HR technology products and services – many vendors even choose to announce their latest products for the first time at HR Tech. There is no better place to touch, compare and contrast the latest solutions from leading vendors in every category, as well as start-ups.
