Our Conferences


11th Annual HR Executive Conference

Given the importance of people and culture in A/E/C firms, EFCG started the HR Executive Conference in 2010 to focus on identifying and providing insight into global HR and compensation policies, issues, and metrics.

The HR Executive Conference is pre-approved for PHR, SPHR, and GPHR credits from the HR Certification Institute.  

May 14th -15th, 2020


New York, NY

Capacity: Limited to 100


$2,400 1st attendee

$1,700 additional attendees


Due to the present situation in New York City, the 2020 HR Executive Conference, originally scheduled to take place from May 14 – 15, is postponed. Please know that we are reassessing the situation daily and will communicate any changes to registrants. Please periodically check back on our website for updates specific to each event. Given we are rescheduling the conference, we will honor your purchase and provide your firm with a full credit for the registration fee that can be used for any EFCG Conference in 2020 or 2021.


As it is important we receive your HR Survey data to best evaluate industry trends and provide the most informative insights, we are still having registrants submit their surveys.


If you have questions or want to speak with a member of our team, you can reach out to EFCG Managing Partner Julie Hasiba (jhasiba@efcg.com). We are here to support you and your firm however we can.

All participants are required to complete two detailed surveys, one focused on HR benefits, policies, costs, and strategies, and the other focused on company-wide compensation.
