Ree Donick and the gang at Jeca are friends with the team at The HR Gazette so when we heard that they were co-producing an event with League and WorkTango which included such awesome healthy-eating brands as Mindful Snacks, we knew that we just had to come along!
Tonight's sold-out summit, called InnovateWork Toronto, will bring together 300-350 business professionals from Canada, the US and the UK who are interested in networking and learning about innovative ways to improve employee benefits and ensure healthy workforces.
The event is at the super-cool MaRS Discovery District which is a hub for innovation in business.
Mindful Snacks has a table at the event and they will be offering a gift bundle in aid of a top local kids charity called Moorelands.
We can't wait to chat with the GTA's best minds about new ways to encourage better office habits and hear from the amazing speakers and panel.
