OUR CONFERENCES

HR Leadership Conference

People underscore everything in the engineering & consulting industry, requiring HR leaders to tackle some of the most difficult questions facing firms in the space. To foster a continued dialogue around these questions, EFCG has been hosting its annual HR Leadership Conference since 2010. Each year, HR leaders from firms of all sizes, markets, geographies, and cultures come together to share their insights and learnings on HR strategies, policies and metrics as well as the impact of broader current events. All this exchange is augmented by EFCG’s data and expertise in talent strategy and financial analysis, which leverages our extensive industry and HR-specific proprietary databases .

 

Our agenda will span the topics of talent management, total rewards, functional excellence and its business impact, while reviewing matters including industry turnover levels, aggregate compensation metrics, diversity, equity and inclusion, M&A and culture change, leadership development, and more.

 

HRCI and SHRM Credits: In 2022 our program was once again approved for 12 credit hours from both the HRCI and from SHRM, a benefit unique to EFCG conferences.
