Gartner ReimagineHR Conference

November 8 – 10, 2021 | San Diego, CA

The Premier Conference for CHROs and Their HR Executive Teams

COVID-19 affected every company differently — as some organizations are thriving, others are still struggling to recover, and HR leaders in each segment are faced with new challenges.

As work shifts to a hybrid model, the workforce continues to diversify. As existing HR processes evolve to support this model, the risk of driving inequality across the organization — and damaging talent and business outcomes — continues to grow.

How can HR leaders meet the challenges of the new decade? At Gartner ReimagineHR Conference 2021, we explore these big ideas and deliver insights to help CHROs and HR leaders build the high-performing, equitable organizations of tomorrow.

Design new pay strategies

Learn how to drive increased performance with new pay strategies that are perceived as fair by employees.

Ensure fairness across the workforce

Explore how to build fairness in a hybrid working environment and as employees become more geographically diverse.

Create new DEI initiatives

Gain best practices in improving diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), and also driving equity across the organization.

The best companies don’t win because they have more money or better technology. What’s important is that they’ve got the best people, managers and leaders in their organization. We can help CHROs get the most out of their people — attract, retain and develop them, improve management performance and set their leaders up for success.
