Join 100+ local HR professionals at the PIHRA 2018 MEGA|Social to experience the cool, sleek styles of Haworth Los Angeles Showroom with 360° views of Los Angeles. 
The view from the 48th floor may inspire you to ask for that promotion or, dare we say, start that consulting business you've been dreaming of.

You’ll also be in excellent company - plenty of motivated, connected pros will be there, eager to chat about what’s happening in HR and what’s working in their careers. 


"The view from the 48th floor may inspire you to ask for that promotion or, dare we say, start that consulting business you've been dreaming of."


As for the space, the workplace decor is a brilliant combination of classic and contemporary aesthetics built upon an approach to space design that promotes “well-being,” with the goal of achieving “the enduring state that encompasses wellness of mind and body, and can lead to productive, engaged, and healthy employees.”

Sounds a lot like the heart of HR, doesn’t it?
