Explore the State of Work

The theme for this year’s HRPA Conference & Tradeshow is Work Climate, or “the shared perceptions, mood, and attitudes about an organization.” You might be wondering how work climate is any different from work culture. While they are relatively similar, work climate focuses on the daily experiences of employees rather than the overall set of workplace norms.

As businesses far and wide adopt and embrace automation and increased diversity, those daily work experiences are experiencing a shift. As employees begin to feel the effects of these shifts, HR and business leaders will be called upon to help them navigate this new work climate.

Join nearly 5,000 of your peers this year to be a part of this groundbreaking conversation. We hope to see you there!
