We bring leading member organizations together to learn from one another through:

Member companies play a very active role in the Global Workforce Roundtable.

Members share their experiences by providing executive presentations at Summits or teleconferences as well as responding to other members' information requests.

The Center uses its academic foundation to connect leading international thought leaders and scholars with corporate members in order to create a dialogue on how practitioners can enhance their global workforce management approaches with the aid of rigorous research.
