PHOENIXAbout 380 work-life professionals came to Phoenix last month to attend the 2007 Work-Life Conference & Exhibition presented by WorldatWork and the Alliance for Work-Life Progress.
In addition to various networking opportunities, the Feb. 21-23 conference included a number of workshops on topics ranging from strategies for the aging workplace to helping managers fall in love with flexibility, to linking wellness to incentives.
Also during the conference, the AWLP presented its highest honor, the annual Work-Life Innovative Excellence Award, to Capital Metro Transportation Authority in Austin, Texas, for its "Capital Metro Wellness Program"; the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for its "Trademark Work at Home" program; and Massachusetts General Hospital for its "Be Fit" healthy lifestyles program.
Next year's conference will be held in conjunction with the WorldatWork Total Rewards Conference & Exhibition, May 21-24, 2008, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia. For more information, go to www.worldatwork.org.
