2023 Connection Zone Experience

The Connection Zone is where our exhibitors, sponsors, presenters and attendees come together to share thousands of innovative ideas, tools, and applications from across the universe of Total Rewards.

Our exhibitors will invite you to test new technologies, explore the many diverse services offered, comparison shop, and purchase the tools you require to keep pace with changing workforces and workplaces. 

There is no greater opportunity to dive into the latest Total Rewards solutions and the people who build them, all in one place—and it only happens once a year at Total Rewards!

2024 is brewing with fresh ideas!  

But first, let's revisit the incredible 2023 experience.  

Empowerment Zone

Take the time you never have during your busy work week to focus on boosting your own career. Get a one-on-one consultation with a branding expert from the DAHLIA+Agency for tips on how to enhance your resume, optimize your LinkedIn profile, and showcase your superpowers to others.  

Headshot Lounge

After brushing up your brand strategy in the Empowerment Zone, be sure to visit the WorldatWork Headshot Lounge powered by WTW. Expert photographers and makeup artists are onsite to help capture an image as professional as you are. You’ll get the best shot to use for your LinkedIn profile, speaker bios and beyond. 

Engagement Zone

The Engagement Zone holds space for both one-on-one networking and collaborative conversations. And when you’re ready for a break, the wellness area is the perfect spot to rest and recharge. You can relax in a massage chair, sip some spa water, or decompress by creating a card for the charitable organization Cards for Kindness.

Knowledge Corner and Learning Lounge

Visit one of these two dedicated spaces to listen in on high-impact presentations where professionals share key takeaways about new products, services or ideas in 25 minutes or less. Modeled after popular TED Talks, these educational “bursts” are creatively crafted to maximize your retention. 

Puppy Park

Fall in puppy love at the WorldatWork Puppy Park Powered by BetterComp, which will be available in the Connection Zone during lunch on Monday and Tuesday. You’ll give—and get—love and attention from adoptable dogs of all types brought in by Puppy Love, an organization that partners with and donates a portion of their proceeds to local animal rescues. 

WorldatWork Booth

Get all your WorldatWork questions answered—about membership, certification, affiliate groups, research and more—and experience where our brand comes to life! In the interactive area, you can mingle with staff and fellow members about your biggest challenges, wins and sources of inspiration. Or listen in on short presentations about affiliate memberships and other topics designed to help you get the most out of your WorldatWork membership.
