    Event Preview: MoveFwd with Yves Boudreau and Kevin Yip

    Event Preview: MoveFwd with Yves Boudreau and Kevin Yip

    The world of work has changed enormously over the past few years. It’s hard to keep pace and harder still to find forums that can help us get ahead. MoveFwd, happening in May 2023, is an event for people leaders to be inspired to harness change, adapt, and move forward to create a better world of work for everyone.

    This special event-focused edition of the HRchat show will offer a preview of the event series that was officially announced today. We mix up the episode format this time by inviting past HRchat guest, CEO at CareerBeacon, and brains behind the new MoveFwd event, Yves Boudreau to join Bill Banham as a guest co-host.

    Listen as Yves and Bill interview Kevin Yip, MoveFwd speaker and founder of Blueboard, an employee recognition and incentives platform powered by hand-curated experiences.

    Kevin and his team say Blueboard makes it easier for companies to give meaningful employee rewards, incentives, and gifts – from one-of-a-kind to once-in-a-lifetime experiences. And you can learn more about Blueboard by listening to HRchat episode 381 with Jonathan Irvine.

    Questions for Kevin Include:
    Please can you take a minute or two and give the listeners an overview of Blueboard and your role at the company?You work with lots of HR folks at Blueboard. What do they seem to be focused on right now as we look ahead to 2023?What can companies expect, what are the solid results after taking steps towards building a culture of employee fulfillment through innovative recognition?Tell us why you decided to get involved with the MoveFwd event and can you share anything about what attendees can expect to hear from you and Blueboard co-founder, Taylor Smith at the event in the Spring?Sounds great but the May event promises to offer “Tangible tools and actionable items to create a better world of work.” In 60 seconds or less: what top tool/actionable item can attendees of your session expect to take away and why does it matter?"Part of supporting mental health as a company is being able to openly talk about it. As a leader, acknowledging when you're feeling burnt out and need to unplug (in public settings) is a powerful way to model that behavior and gives license for your people to do the same.” How do you, Taylor and the leadership team encourage open dialogue at Blueboard? 
    More About MoveFwd

    At the full-day event, happening in Spring 2023, attendees will learn from enlightening speakers such as talent acquisition expert Tim Sackett, Blueboard founders Kevin Yip and Taylor Smith, and Twenty One Toys founder Ilana Ben Ari.

    Attendees will also get the opportunity to make strong connections with other leaders and be inspired to adapt and move forward in this new world of work. Learn more at movefwd.ca.
