21 May 2015 Total Rewards Conference A Real Hit!
What do you get when you combine an HRsoft Selfie photo booth, a $1,000 of gift cards, some boxing gloves and over a 1,000 of the HR industry's best and brightest – a really fun conference!
We just got back from the 2015 Total Rewards Conference in Minneapolis and thought we would share some of our highlights. For those that attended I'm sure you will agree that WorldatWork did another outstanding job this year. Thanks to all of you that stopped by (and took some selfies), we really enjoyed getting to know so many of you. From current customers to folks we have been talking with about our software – it was great to put faces to the names of so many we connect with online. Here are a few of our HRsoft Highlights:
HRsoft Selfies: HR and comp leaders never seem to be shy so we thought it would be fun to, well, have some fun this year. So we setup a photo booth complete with the event backdrop, blow up boxing gloves and even an optional punching back. From solo selfies to entire groups we had some great shots! Attendees were able to select their favorites to share online or email to themselves for a little office humor. Sounds like we'll have to bring this one back next year!
Tech Demo Room: We were delighted to have Luke Malloy from Ameriprise join us in our tech demo session for a customer case study. Taking a different approach from a traditional demo, Luke shared his valuable experience as an HRsoft customer that recently implemented COMPview. Our VP of Client Success, Austin Muzumdar, also sat on the panel and shared his insight to the process from the vendor perspective. We had a packed room and received a ton of great feedback about the presentation. Thanks again to Luke and Austin for doing such a great job!
Conference App: This just keeps getting better. Not only did you have everything you need in one place but it appeared a much larger percentage of attendees were using the app and connecting with each other. From friendly photos to awesome notes from the sessions, it was really a helpful and valuable tool for the conference.
Conference Sessions: While I'll admit much of my time was in the booth or with customers, some of our team attended the conference sessions and said they were great. Packed with people and lots of great content. Hot topics were definitely around some of the upcoming law changes and the always favorite comp planning strategy sessions.
Social Event: WorldatWork always seems to find a creative place to hold their evening social events and this year was no different. Held in the Mill City Museum in downtown Minneapolis, we were treated to 2 great bands, tons of great food and drinks along with private tours of the museum. If you were lucky enough to find your way to the top of the building, you were treated to an amazing view of the Mississippi River. I highly recommend checking out this place the next time you visit Minneapolis.
Next year is in sunny San Diego – which will be quite welcomed given our cold weather this year. Looking forward to seeing what WorldatWork has in store for us and see you all there!
