IRF 2021 Leadership Insights Forum: Transformations

The Leadership Insights Forum is an opportunity to rethink, enhance, or transform your incentive program. We’ll gather in Boston and be inspired by a city that is always striving to create, innovate, and evolve. You’ll have the opportunity to discuss best practices, access top research, and collaborate with your peers to transform your programs using design and data.

We’ll gather at Boston Harbor, which has been transformed from one of the filthiest in the nation to one of the cleanest. The Encore Boston Harbor is a stunning example of the new development that is attracting locals and visitors to an area that was inaccessible a generation ago.

We look forward to seeing you in Boston, where we will collaborate on shared goal of transforming your workforce with incentive programs.
