Without the human, it’s just work.

Workhuman® Live is the game-changer of conferences that inspires all who attend to create a more human workplace for everyone, everywhere.

Magic. Movement. Momentum.

Back in 2015, a few hundred HR leaders gathered in Orlando for the humble beginnings of what would become a global movement to make work more human. Today, Workhuman Live is the game-changer of conferences, where the world’s best minds gather to share transformative ideas and to galvanize and inspire a community of thousands to create more human workplaces everywhere.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Workhuman Live?

Workhuman Live is the outlier of HR conferences and the kind of positive environment where transformative ideas can have far-reaching influence. It’s a place where like-minded people come to connect, have conversations, contribute ideas, and leave inspired to bring more humanity to their workplaces – and the world.

We go beyond HR and delve into the data behind gratitude, implementing human rights in the workplace, and other provocative issues around the future of work. It’s about usable, sharable, actionable content – and a village of experts, thought leaders, researchers, professors, executives, activists, authors, up-and-comers, and changemakers who’ll use their knowledge to propel us to where we want to go.

Can I attend Workhuman Live virtually?

After two years (and way too many Zoom meetings), we’re ready to bring the humanity back – 100% in person.
