Benefits of Membership

For Senior Executives

Think Tank Sessions: Senior HR professionals gather four times a year from around the world to leverage our research, thought leadership, and our world-class network in our unique Think Tank process as we develop new ideas and approaches to solving HR’s most demanding and current challenges. Each think tank session is facilitated by Dave Ulrich.

Mini Forum Webinars: Join a group of about 8-10 institute member companies on a 60-minute mini forum call to share practical ideas, experiences, and best practices around a critical topic.

For the CHRO

The Annual CHRO Summit: Join an exclusive group of the world’s top HR thinkers and practitioners in a special session designed entirely around the topics of interest of Institute member Chief HR Officers.

The Annual Partner Call: Join Dave Ulrich on a 30-minute call each year to discuss your key business issues, your focus areas in HR, and how the RBL Institute can be your thought partner to co-create a solution.
