"For the majority of managers, their first priorities are to monitor their employee's numbers or production and to make sure their meeting deadlines. However, we understand that if managers shifted their focus to engaging their employees more, they'd see better results," says Catherine Gray, JD, senior managing editor of HR for BLR. "Better engagement means better productivity. On the same vein is culture. There is no shortcut to strong company culture. While free lunches and team drinks are ‘nice to haves', open communication, strong leadership, and work/life balance top people's wish list. HR Daily Advisor 2018 will help attendees understand these trends, roll out their own wellness, engagement, and culture plans, which will ultimately aid in boosting employee retention and business performance."

Its content comprises the most pressing workplace issues like employee engagement and retention, company culture, benefits and wellness plans, compensation and total rewards, federal and state employment law compliance, and more.
