noun | cat·a·lyst | ˈka-tə-ləst

an agent that provokes or speeds significant change or action

The definition of catalyst is someone or something that causes or speeds significant change or action. HR Professionals are often tasked with introducing and supporting organizational change; and have sometimes been accused of being the most resistant to change. Do you and your team have the tools you need to take action?

Whether you love change or you’d rather avoid it, SOAHR 2018 is designed to support HR professionals as catalysts. Our conference team has identified an outstanding lineup of facilitators who will challenge and inspire those who are new to an HR career, emerging as leaders, and accomplished tenured practitioners.
