an immersive virtual employee engagement event

Virtual Event

 Wednesday, December 2nd, 2020 
11:30am-4:00pm ET 
 Executive Discussions 
Thursday, December 3rd 
It’s the end of 2020 and a time when the recent pandemic and years of inequality have come to a head, forcing organizations to make the “future of work” happen now. 

In our flagship event of the year, achieve Engagement will bring together leading vendors, consultants, talent management practitioners, and academia to share innovative ways to navigate the current landscape. This complimentary event will directly connect our partners to a community of senior practitioners looking to better understand the implications, ideas, processes and tools for building organizational success by changing the Employee Experience. Don’t miss it.


Through a dynamic blended presentation and panel discussion format, we’ll spend the day analyzing Well-being, Inclusion, and the Work “Place”. The next day, we’ll bring the senior attendees from the community together with our partners for intimate executive discussions through a program called “Virtual Braindates” by e180. This allows your team to have a real two-way dialogue and gain invaluable insight into what is keeping the marketplace up at night.


We hope to find one organization to be the exclusive partner for each topic. As a partner, you have the ability to bring in your subject matter experts and potentially a client, highlighting how your solutions and services are impacting the future of work, now.

More to come



In the past six months, the critical linkage between employee wellbeing and their performance at work has been made clear. When employees’ core human needs like safety, belonging, health, and meaning are not addressed, they simply cannot offer their best work. As we plan for what the near future of work will bring, one thing is certain -- wellbeing will be a vital component. 



The time for empty promises about diversity and inclusion on corporate websites is passed. In the era of #MeToo and Black Lives Matter, current and future employees are demanding real action from employers to create truly equitable and inclusive experiences. This will call upon employers to take a hard look at their policies and practices to make to meaningful progress. 


Work "Place"

When, where, and how we work changed forever in early 2020. Today, we know that over half of workers can do their jobs remotely. This has left many organizations struggling to redefine what “workplace” is going to mean for them in the future. There are many new questions to answer including rethinking the role of physical workspace and considering how to maintain culture virtually.
