All LSHRM registrations for meetings and events must be pre-paid (via credit card or bank debit card) through the online registration system.

Members who are unable to prepay online or miss the reservation deadline are welcome to register at any in-person meeting and pay at the door via check, debit card or credit card as a "Member/Non-Member without registration”.  The fee paid at the door is $10 more than if pre-paid prior to the day of the event.  All virtual/online meetings should be paid electronically through the online registration system.

    RJE Business Interiors

    Program Learning Objectives

    RJE commissioned DORIS to collect data in 5 research areas: collaboration,
    creativity, innovation, strategy, and productivity; focusing specifically on
    what each would look like in a post- COVID 19 world. They saw the need
    to adapt, innovate, and push the workplace forward to the future. The
    goal was to find answers to the questions, "Will we all move remote?"
    "What will offices look like moving forward?"; all the while, sparking
    creativity and innovation within each organization to imagine their future
    workplace; whether that be at home in, the office, or both!
