SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (PRWEB) July 18, 2006
WorldatWork, the association for human resources professionals focused on attracting, motivating and retaining personnel, is holding its first European Total Rewards Conference from 26-27 October 2006 in Brussels.
Amongst the speakers are world-renowned professionals who have driven the human capital discussion to the best of the public agenda. The conference chairman is Xavier Baeten, director of the Executive Remuneration Study Centre and the Strategic Rewards Research Centre at Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School (Belgium). He is recognized for his expertise in executive remuneration, strategic reward management, employee positive aspects and stakeholder management.
The conference keynote speaker is Professor Prabhu S. Guptara, head of the Centre for Organisational and Executive Development based at the Wolfsberg Executive Development Centre of UBS AG (formerly the Union Bank of Switzerland). 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 clients in 30 countries,” stated Anne Ruddy, president of WorldatWork. “With the globalisation of the workforce, it makes excellent sense to host a conference in Europe. Organizations 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 talk about these focused topics.”
