VNHRA 2022

C’mon we promise this will not be one of those ‘same same’ business gathering occasions you have easily spotted out there.
It’s guaranteed with
JOY. And you can expect the unexpected! 

The first JOY starts with our humble ambition to decode all the facets of your employees’ well-being as the whole selves, not just your workers. We promise you will understand what have been making the pure JOY of your people's personal and professional lives. And bahm! You know how to make the best of both worlds!

The second JOY is empowered by our first-time-ever stellar lineup of speakers from different walks of life. On stage will be not just business leaders, but professionals from art, psychology, sociology ... and maybe some of your unexpected “OMG-they-are-here” subject-matter experts

▶ The third+ JOY is kind of basic, but made in a WOW-filled way. Be ready because you will get more of the good takeaways (including a great laugh for sure) and less of the sighs over time. Prepare for your one-of-a-kind JOY!

So. What are you still waiting for? Let’s have JOY together!
P/s: ‘AWAKENING JOY’ list is still counting
