The Elevate Summit: BambooHR’s First Ever User Conference

February 28, 2017

11,000 feet. That’s 2 miles. Or 3.352 kilometers.

That’s how high the mountains reach at the world-class Snowbird Resort, home of the first ever BambooHR user conference, The Elevate Summit, this April 26-28.

But as monumental as the heights of the Snowbird mountains are, the professional heights the attendees of the Elevate Summit are expected to reach might just surpass them. Because after months (years, really) of thought, the three-day user conference is specifically designed to inspire HR professionals like never before and elevate them to their next level of HR mastery.

When Elevate Summit attendees return home to their organizations, we expect they’ll be champing at the bit to lift their entire workforce to those same heights and be equipped to do just that.

Here’s what you can look forward to from our first ever user conference:

Education and Inspiration

Of those confirmed so far, The Elevate Summit includes multiple keynote speeches from HR and culture experts like Susan Cain, Patty McCord, and Shawn Murphy, as well as BambooHR’s founders, Ben Peterson and Ryan Sanders. Each keynote presenter is uniquely prepared to help HR professionals navigate through the various challenges they face in the business world today and offer inspiration that should bolster attendees’ efforts in the different aspects of their day-to-day work.

There will also be a wide variety of breakout and work sessions to choose from throughout the event. So, whether you’re looking for ways to improve your people analytics, or if you’re simply determined to increase your employee engagement, there will be a session specifically tailored to help you meet your goals. And, as a cherry on top, professional development credit will be offered!

Bamboo Love

Throughout the event, we will highlight BambooHR’s award-winning culture and values, and use them as a guide for our discussions. Those values include: Be Open, Enjoy Quality of Life, Grow from Good to Great, Lead from Where You Are, Assume the Best, Do the Right Thing, and Make it Count. We hold these values close to our hearts, and we think you’ll love the insights we’ve gained by applying these values to our culture on a daily basis.

If you want to get into the nitty gritty, we will be offering one-on-one appointments at the “Genius Bar” with Bamboo representatives to answer all of your BambooHR-specific questions, as well as to offer software insights and best practices. Of course, we offer these same services every day, but sometimes it’s good to get literal hands-on help, and have face-to-face conversations. We know we’re excited to shake hands with a lot of our prospects and customers!

Shared Experiences

Speaking of face-to-face conversations, more than 200 industry experts and enthusiasts will be attending the event, and we’ll make sure to give you every networking opportunity you desire, including networking lunches. During those networking sessions, we expect attendees will have much to share with each other with regards to best practices, amusing stories, and even words of affirmation. After all, we know how much the HR community values people, and we expect warmth and camaraderie to permeate The Elevate Summit.

Beyond helping others by offering insights and camaraderie, we will be participating in an actual service project. Stay tuned in the coming days for details on this fulfilling opportunity. [Service project info]

Mountain Paradise

And did we mention we’ll be in paradise? The internationally celebrated ski destination of Snowbird Resort sits just 27 miles outside downtown Salt Lake City, among the cascading granite cliffs of Little Cottonwood Canyon. With its aerial tram accessing 169 runs over 2500 skiable acres, Snowbird offers an unforgettable experience for first-timers and diehard veterans alike. If you’re not a skier, Snowbird provides something for everyone, with gorgeous mountain scenery, luxury suites, outdoor heated pools, spa amenities, entertainment, and fine dining.

And for those looking to extend their trip, Salt Lake City is a mere 40-minute drive away from Snowbird resort. You can stop by Utah’s capital and wander the 100 shops in the upscale, open-air City Creek Center, visit the Natural History Museum, tour historic Temple Square, and get a taste of the city’s vibrant entertainment, food, and arts scene.
