The REBA Innovation Day 2019

Embracing innovation & technology for the future workforce

28/11/2019 09:00 - 16:30 etc venue, 155 Bishopsgate

Record attendance of C&B professionals

The fifth REBA Innovation Day received a record attendance. Delegates enjoyed an excellent day of horizon gazing in the reward & benefits sector.

From discussing what digital-first means in the context of reward and benefits, to understanding how human intervention and a sociable company culture fits in with this; from learning how to marry technology and performance to hearing what peers are doing with technology.

Plus seeing live demonstrations of the latest platforms, apps and solutions on the market from the sponsors, meant delegates walked away with fresh ideas of what’s available to them.

The programme combined employer experiences, presentations from futurologists and industry leaders, plus unlimited opportunities to network with fellow reward professionals.

REBA’s annual Innovation Day is the only conference in the UK to focus on innovative new technologies for the reward and benefits function and the data and management information that is gained as a result.

Each year the industry-leading event attracts around 300 senior reward and benefits practitioners from large employer organisations. These forward-thinking individuals are steering their businesses and teams through the transition to digital employee experience, and strategic management information and insight. The Innovation Day is effectively a “what’s new in reward and benefits conference” and as such it includes a ‘show and tell’ element where delegates can experience the new solutions in a live demonstration session.
