2011 WorldatWork Expo

I just finished booking my flight and my hotel for the 2011 WorldatWork expo in San Diego starting on Monday, May 23rd and continuing on Tuesday, May 24th.

I'm excited about the show this year. I'm looking forward to seeing friends and meeting new people. I'm also really happy that it's in San Diego. I love the city and the surrounding areas. I'm especially looking forward to walking around the Gas Lamp district, finding a local coffee shop and maybe poking around in some galleries.

The first ever WorldatWork show that I went to as an exhibitor was in San Diego back in 2003. That makes this my 9th exhibition. I have to say that there have been a lot of changes in nine years. The biggest shift has been the focus on total rewards. It was right around this time, maybe 2004/2005 that WorldatWork unveiled their total rewards model. In 2003 there were mostly compensation, benefits and technology related booths at the show. In 2010 at least half the booths related to performance management, work-life, and career development. I think this is a good direction for our profession. It recognizes all the aspects of the employee value proposition.

I'll be in booth #227 for the expo. Stop by and say hi if you're going to the show!
