10 Reasons to Attend 15Five’s Thrive ‘23 Conference in Denver

Nicole Klemp

Are you ready to Thrive? 

The 15Five team is thrilled to bring strategic HR professionals and industry thought leaders together once again for Thrive 2023

This year’s immersive, action-packed conference is happening November 6-8 in beautiful Denver, Colorado. Grab your team and get ready for an unforgettable experience of community-building, learning, and inspiration. 

Not sure if Thrive’s the right conference for you? Here are 10 reasons to get registered (and excited!) for this year’s event.

1. Get inspired by strategic HR success stories

We love a good success story—that’s why the Thrive calendar will be full of inspiring, outcome-driven customer stories (20+ hours worth!). 

Hear from 15Five customers who have overcome struggles, found new strategies that make an impact, and are building engaging workplaces where employees can do their best work.

2. Experience Denver at the beautiful Grand Hyatt 

Between the great content and the Denver altitude, you’ll be feeling on top of the world at Thrive ‘23! This year’s event will be held in the stunning Grand Hyatt Denver, in the heart of downtown. 

Located just one block from the 16th Street Mall and minutes from Coors Field and the Broncos stadium, the Grand Hyatt puts you in a prime location to enjoy all the Mile High City has to offer. 

3. Be among the first to know what’s new at 15Five 

Our Thrive keynotes are absolutely jam-packed this year. You’ll hear from Jennie Yang, VP of People at 15Five, on why connecting the work of HR to quantifiable business impact does not have to come at the cost of building the human-centered workplace of your dreams. You’ll also hear from Dr. Jeff Smith, Head of Product at 15Five, on the shift to strategic HR and what this for HR leaders moving forward. We’ll also be unveiling 15Five’s biggest product launch of 2023, and sharing how the 15Five platform is evolving to accelerate HR’s strategic leap and advance our mission of helping HR leaders drive results through human-centered leadership and management.

4. Experience live product interactions and Q&A

Have burning questions about the 15Five platform? Sometimes it’s easier to see a tool or feature in action. Thrive provides an opportunity for attendees to pose their questions about 15Five’s product and get answers in real time from our experts. These live interactions enable attendees to gain deeper insights into various aspects of the product, fostering a better understanding and maximizing its potential impact on their organizations. This direct access to experts ensures that attendees leave the event not only inspired but also equipped with the knowledge they need to make the most of 15Five’s offerings.

5. Connect with industry peers and experts

Build connections and swap ideas with HR’s best and brightest at Thrive’s interactive sessions, expert panels, and social events. There will be plenty of opportunities to network with fellow attendees, speakers, and event sponsors throughout the conference. 

Discover new strategies, practical ideas, and fresh tactics while you grow your network and (hopefully) make some new friends!

6. Dance the night away at the Thrive party

You’ll want to pack your dancin’ shoes for our legendary Thrive party. We know HR professionals work hard, so we want to make sure you have the chance to play hard, too. Let loose and enjoy a memorable evening with your HR squad. 

7. Hear from Hamilton star Phillipa Soo 

Don’t throw away your shot to see Tony-nominated, Emmy-nominated, Grammy Award-winning performer, Phillipa Soo, who you may know best as Eliza Schuyler from the critically acclaimed Broadway show Hamilton. (If you missed her on Broadway, you can watch her right now in the film version of Hamilton streaming on Disney+!)

We’re so excited to hear from Phillipa when she takes the Thrive stage for an intimate fireside chat. This is a conversation you won’t want to miss.

8. Recognize changemakers at the High Five Awards 

This year will mark our 2nd annual High Five Awards, at which we’ll showcase and celebrate HR leaders who are driving progress and making meaningful change in their organizations.

From among the ranks of 15Five’s incredible customer base, we’ll be presenting the following awards to four strategic HR leaders (and their teams) who have shown extraordinary excellence in each of these categories:

  • Engagement Excellence Award
  • Positive Performance Award
  • Tackling Turnover Award
  • Manager Momentum Award

9. Participate and learn in breakout sessions and workshops 

Get actionable tips and strategies to increase employee engagement and performance, reduce regrettable turnover, improve manager effectiveness, and more as you engage with your peers in Thrive’s workshops and breakout sessions.

10. Go home relaxed, rejuvenated, and ready to Thrive

Expect to leave Thrive ‘23 feeling recharged and ready to take all you learned and hit the ground running when you get back to the office. As an attendee shared after last year’s event, “It’s been really inspiring, but not just the kind of inspiring that sends me home with energy; I’m going home with really practical ways that we can reinforce, reinvent, grow, and strengthen our culture.”
