Conference Overview

Thank you for joining us for an incredible time together at this year’s conference. We hope that you were energized and inspired by everything around you, and were reminded that no matter what you do in life, it should energize you, fulfill you, engage you and give you purpose each day. Your work should inspire you and fill you with a sense of pride. That’s why the theme of this year’s conference was Energizing Life’s Work, and was all about providing you insight, tools and thought leadership to connect what you do to your life’s outcomes.

Connect 2014 offered workstreams specific to HR, IT and Marketing/Customer Service that provided valuable insight and thought leadership for each group. Because it’s no longer just about talent, technology or commerce, it’s about connecting all three together to Energize Life’s Work. The HR workstream at the conference—the same great Kenexa World Conference you know and love—was focused on creating a Smarter Workforce through the lens of HR.
