Attend the 2016 Small & Medium Business Conference to learn from Best Workplaces as they share their challenges and successes, inspiring you to leverage your most powerful asset - your people.

School of Cirrus Rocks! Immersion Experience

Hosted by Cirrus Logic

Truly great cultures are spread by telling great stories, and when all these stories and experiences are merged together, common threads emerge, helping to create a cohesive company narrative. Cirrus Logic, ranked #8 on the 2015 Great Place to Work® Best Medium Workplaces list, is opening their doors to conference attendees for a first-hand experience of their new hire onboarding event, unique to their own workplace culture. You'll leave the day inspired and invigorated to amp up your onboarding strategy!

During this jam-packed day, you'll also gain insights from Tony Bond, EVP, Chief Innovation Officer at Great Place to Work® on ways that strategic on-boarding can help the bottom line of your organization. This experience will entail working sessions with peers and Great Place to Work® Culture Experts to share your challenges and best practices on recruiting and retaining top talent.

Transportation to and from hotel is included and meals will be provided throughout the day. Make sure to join us upstairs at the end of the immersion for a party to kick-off the Small and Medium Business Conference!
