ABD is the Platinum Sponsor of the 2019 HR Symposium

SAN MATEO, CA – ABD is the Platinum Sponsor of the 2019 HR Symposium.  This leading event draws hundreds of human resource professionals together to be inspired and informed about The Future of HR and how it impacts the industry and employee engagement. The Symposium is being held on October 17, 2019 at the Fox Theater in Redwood City, California.

ABD works with thousands of employers to help create an environment that keeps people healthy, happy motivated and committed to their work. The seasoned team is on the frontline working directly with our client to help create an amazing employee experience while navigating new legislation and ever-changing benefit programs.

“The war for talent is seems never-ending. Companies are faced with increasingly competitive landscape for recruiting and retaining talented employees,” said Darren Brown, Executive Vice President, Employee Benefits, ABD Insurance and Financial Services. “As a trusted partner of HR Symposium, we look forward to keeping a finger on the pulse of HR trends, and helping businesses manage change informed and with ease.”

As the Premier Sponsor, ABD will be partnering with HR Symposium in a number of ways surrounding this event. We are proud that several of ABD’s clients will be in attendance as well as participate in panels and presentations sharing their insights, challenges, and best practices. Through 2019 HR Symposium Pulse Surveys, we will learn what is top of mind and impacting companies today. Armed with this information, Symposium content will focus on the most relevant challenges facing the audience and deliverable actionable take-aways. Following the October event, we will partner with HR Symposium to execute a survey and study about the Future of HR. We will dig deep to gather meaningful data, opinions and feedback. Our goal is to develop an industry leading study to share, drive conversation and support business decisions. ABD is honored to launch our ABD Endowment Fund to support The Lyn Boone Memorial Scholarship. HR Symposium’s primary purpose is to further advance the development of the Human Resources profession. Over the years, this scholarship program has awarded over $500,000 to deserving students pursuing HR-related degrees. Human Resources is an industry in motion. As the Platinum Sponsor of this year’s HR Symposium, ABD is proud to be a thought partner in helping set the course and invest in the future of the HR profession.
