    Health & Safety

    Does Workhuman have a Health & Safety policy?

    Workhuman continues to closely monitor the status of the COVID-19 pandemic. The safety of our attendees, employees, speakers, and partners remains our highest priority. Please refer to our health & safety notice here for all updated information.

    Is proof of vaccination required for entry into Workhuman®Live?

    Yes. In order to prioritize the well-being of our attendees we require proof of COVID-19 vaccination for entry into the conference in May 2022.

    How do I provide proof of vaccination for entry to Workhuman Live?

    Workhuman will partner with a third-party technology provider to assist with vaccine document verification. Details on the verification process are forthcoming.

    What types of vaccines are acceptable to meet this requirement?

    Workhuman is following the CDC’s guidance for determining when an individual is fully vaccinated. Under current CDC guidance, a person is considered fully vaccinated:

    • Two weeks after receiving the second dose in a two-dose series, such as the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines; or
    • Two weeks after receiving a single-dose vaccine, such as the Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine

    Will on-site COVID-19 testing be available?

    Yes. We plan to provide on-site testing for COVID-19 for anyone who becomes ill or requires proof of negative testing prior to return international travel.

    How is the Georgia World Congress Center managing Health & Safety?

    Our conference venue, the Georgia World Congress Center, has a comprehensive operational plan designed to meet the health and safety challenges presented by Covid-19. You can review those policies and procedure here.

    About Workhuman Live

    When does Workhuman Live 2022 take place, and where is it located?

    May 16 – May 19, 2022. All keynotes and breakouts will take place at the Georgia World Congress Center.

    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.

    For more information, check out our one-page event overview.

    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.

    How long has Workhuman Live been around?

    Workhuman Live is in its 7th year. The inaugural conference took place in 2015 with an intimate group of 400. The conference has since grown into a global gathering of HR and business leaders, with over 3,300 attendees in 2019. After a hiatus due to the pandemic in 2020 and 2021 where we went all digital, we are back in person and look forward to gathering with you at the 2022 conference.

    Who attends Workhuman Live?

    HR and business leaders – CXOs, CHROs, people managers, culture curators, and other professionals who recognize the value of bringing more humanity to today’s modern workplace.

    Do I receive professional development / continuing education credits for attending?

    Workhuman Live 2022 has been approved for 15 SHRM, 15 HRPA, 15 HRCI, and 1 WorldatWork professional development credit. We are currently working with other accreditation associations on credit approvals and we’ll post additional credits information as it becomes available.

    When will the 2022 Workhuman Live conference app be available?

    We anticipate releasing our conference app approximately 4 weeks from the conference dates, by mid-April 2022. Registered attendees will receive an email with details when it becomes available.

    Can I bring a guest to any of the social events?

    Unfortunately, no. Only registered conference attendees may attend the social events.

    What is the suggested attire?

    Business casual is recommended for all conference and networking events. Do wear layers as some activities are indoors (cool) and some are out (warm). For evening events, anywhere from casual to dressy/tropical. Please check the weather forecast for Atlanta before traveling so that you pack accordingly.

    When can I book a hotel?

    Housing is open! Once you register, you’ll receive a link to book your room within the official conference hotel block. Your registration confirmation number is required to book at the conference rates, but you’re welcome to look at our hotel options before then.

    No-Risk Cancellation Policy

    Can I transfer an order to someone else in lieu of canceling?

    A registration may be transferred to another person any time by using the “Manage Registration” link in your confirmation email. Registrations are tied to unique email addresses and must contain an accurate first and last name for the new attendee. IDs will be required to pick up a badge on-site.

    How do I cancel my registration?

    You can cancel your registration using the form on the cancellation policy page, or email registration@workhuman.com (be sure to have your Ticket ID handy – it can be found on your confirmation email). The Workhuman Live team will process all cancellations within 72 hours of receipt of your notice and respond with a final confirmation.

    If I just sent in my registration, will it be processed, and will my card be charged?

    Registrations are processed automatically at the time of submission. Workhuman will require you to complete a cancellation request, which will be processed in accordance with the policy.

    When will I get a refund?

    Refunds for payments made by credit card will be processed immediately; however, it may take up to 30 days for the credited amount to be reflected in your account statement by your bank provider. Refunds for other payment types will be issued by the Workhuman Accounts Receivable department as soon as invoices are finalized.

    Will canceling my Workhuman Live registration also cancel my hotel reservations?

    No. When you complete your request to cancel your registration, it will not impact your hotel reservations. Hotel reservations are governed under the terms and conditions of each hotel at the time of your booking; therefore, you will need to contact the hotel or use the appropriate hotel-specific cancellation procedures from your hotel reservation confirmation emails to cancel.

    What if I cancel my registration and then change my mind?

    Unfortunately, you cannot reinstate your original registration after you cancel it. You would need to start a new registration at the current published attendee rate for that time and provide new payment.

    What happens if Workhuman cancels the event?

    Workhuman reserves the right to cancel, alter, or reschedule the conference for any reason, including because Workhuman determines in its sole discretion that the conference cannot be held as planned. Workhuman also reserves the right to close registration when tickets are sold out or if local mandates impose restrictions.

    Should Workhuman cancel the conference for any reason, your conference fees will be refunded.

    Should the conference be rescheduled, all registrants will be offered the opportunity to transfer registration to the new date or opt for a full refund.

    Is there a virtual option in the event I cancel my registration?

    No. Workhuman Live is a face-to-face, in-person event only.

    What else can I do to protect myself when making airline and hotel reservations?

    Registrants are advised against making nonrefundable travel arrangements. Should you purchase nonrefundable airline tickets or make nonrefundable hotel reservations, you do so at your own risk.

    For questions or concerns, who can I contact?

    Please forward your questions or concerns to registration@workhumanlive.com and we will get back to you within 48 hours.
