With the globalisation of the workforce, it makes perfect sense to host a conference in Europe. Companies either headquartered or doing business in Europe have unique total rewards challenges. As the only global association focused on total rewards, WorldatWork is uniquely suited to bring audiences together to discuss these focused topics.
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (PRWEB) July 18, 2006

He is also the founder and chairman of Advance, a London-based management training and consultancy firm.
“WorldatWork has grown to 30,000 members and customers in 30 countries,” said Anne Ruddy, president of WorldatWork. “With the globalisation of the workforce, it makes perfect sense to host a conference in Europe. Companies either headquartered or doing business in Europe have unique total rewards challenges. As the only global association focused on total rewards, WorldatWork is uniquely suited to bring audiences together to discuss these focused topics.”
The WorldatWork® European Total Rewards Conference brings together leading European employers, academics and management experts from across Europe and elsewhere to share the latest strategies and practices on attracting, motivating and retaining talented employees.
