Looking Ahead with Public Policy, Compliance, DE&I, and More at the Virtual Spring Conference

From discussions on public policy, compliance, DE&I, and more, here is a look into what the second day of year’s virtual Spring Conference.

The world of work weathered its share of challenges and changes over the past year, from the unprecedented shift to remote work that launched remote work policies, to the accelerated importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) in everyday business practices. But no matter what changes come our way, the workforce mobility industry has been there to support strategic initiatives, drive policy, and support employers and employees along the way.

To take stock of where we’ve been and where we’re going, we’re holding a virtual Spring Conference, and we’re retaining all of the key elements of our in-person event: dynamic speakers, robust concurrent educational sessions, an extensive marketplace and exhibition hall, networking opportunities and events. This event will bring together relocation professionals including corporate relocation managers, real estate professionals and relocation service representatives.

Between 24-26 May, attendees have the opportunity to discuss current issues affecting the relocation industry, focusing on U.S. domestic issues including remote work, compliance, diversity and inclusion and much more. Keynote speaker Cheryl Cran will kick off our first day, and here’s what the second day of the virtual Spring Conference has in store on Tuesday, 25 May.
