Virgin Pulse’s third annual Thrive Sumit kicks off in Boston today, looking at all aspects of employee wellbeing.
Taking to the stage at the conference are: entrepreneurial guru Cameron Herold, who will share his “Vivid Vision” methodology and strategies for getting teams on the same page and helping organisations attract and retain amazing employees, former chief talent officer at Netflix, Patty McCord, who will offer her perspective on corporate culture and the role it plays in driving engagement, productivity and business performance, and NFL defensive tackle for the Cincinnati Bengales, Devon Still, who will share his experience of the importance of social support as the father of young cancer survivor Leah Still.
“Leading organisations and HR professionals know that an engaged workforce is a key driver of business outcomes,” Virgin Pulse CEO Chris Boyce said. “Thrive Summit 2016 provides us with an opportunity to bring together the best and brightest industry professionals to share ideas, collaborate and innovate around the role employee wellbeing plays in inspiring stronger workplace cultures and driving business performance.”
Earlier this year, Virgin Pulse announced it had joint forces with ShapeUp and Global Corporate Challenge to become the world’s largest wellbeing software provider. Together the companies are working to advance Virgin Pulse’s mission of changing lives and workplaces for good.
“Virgin Pulse is the perfect example of an organisation that helps companies take care of their employees through innovative technology,” Virgin Group Founder Richard Branson commented.
