Making the Most of the ACCP Employee Experience Summit

are you ready for the ACCP employee experience summit?

Next week, I’ll be heading up to the Windy City, Second City, Chi-Town (okay, fine, I’ll stop) to mix and mingle with my fellow employee experience enthusiasts at ACCP’s Employee Experience Summit. It’s no secret that improving employee engagement can lead to bottom line results, and studies (like this one from my friends at YourCause—be sure to stop by their booth!) show that uniting around a good cause is a great way to keep your people inspired and on board. 

Of course, enhancing the employee experience via corporate giving, CSR, or philanthropy activities brings with it a host of question marks: How can I use corporate citizenship to attract and retain talent? Is there a way to better align my brand with social causes? What do my employees expect out of a corporate volunteer program? Can we drive true social change through social activism and corporate giving? All of these and more will be addressed at the #ACCPSummit on Thursday, May 17th, in Chicago. 

As a frequent conference-goer and speaker myself, I’ve found that a bit of upfront prep work can help promote a more enjoyable and valuable conference experience. It can also help you avoid those head scratching “who?” “what?” “forget it, I’ll just go hide in this corner” moments. Here are a few links to help you learn more about each speaker and their companies.
