Here are 5 key areas to cover when convincing your manager URx is a must attend opportunity for you and your team.


URx Conference Themes

URx is the ultimate blend of cutting-edge themes like AI recruiting tools, early ID program planning, virtual vs IRL programming conversations, diversity workshops, and more. These theme’s aren’t BuzzWords, they are an immersive experience through panels and workshops that will showcase business impact. 


You will connect with peers from all over North America (and a few from Europe!) working on small but mighty teams, large and complex teams, veterans in the space, and those with fresh ideas. Expand your horizons and networks by meeting with our university and early talent partners who champion diversity and inclusion in this space and have a wealth of knowledge to equip you as you head back to speak to your leadership about the early talent landscape. 


When you get back to work, you’ll be in position to hit the ground running, putting to use those skills in day-to-day operations.


URx Is a Great Team Offsite Location

Just like most things, attending URx is better together! Invite your team and turn it into offsite. Whether your team works remotely, hybrid, or in the office, team bonding is always healthy—and couldn’t we all use more of that these days? Added perk? Your team returns to the office ready to roll feeling refreshed with new ideas. Now that’s what we call a win-win. 



Highlight Personal Examples of ROI

If you’ve been fortunate enough to attend a previous URx Conference, leverage your firsthand knowledge. Share the concrete benefits you gained and provide real-world examples of how the conference impacted your approach to work. Explore our testimonials for inspiration and share how specific sessions enlightened you or discussions that led to an innovation you implemented after the conference. Previous conference session recordings are available on OneReq.com, check out 2023 here.


What areas, skills, or processes are you or your team trying to level up? Are you looking for new AI tools? URx24 has sessions on that! Are you looking for new AI tools? URx24 is addressing those needs too! Illustrate how attending URx will expose you to the latest advancements in these areas but also empower you to develop, test, and operationalize fresh ideas and skills.


This experience is not just about staying current; it’s a strategic part of your work and an investment in your professional development, equipping you with the tools and insights needed to achieve team goals, stand out in your role, and position yourself and team for success.

Finally highlight how building connections at the conference will not only benefit you personally but also contribute to overcoming unexpected challenges in our work. By tapping into the URx network, you can foster ongoing conversations and collaboration that extend well beyond the conference itself. Next time you have a question, you’ll know a resource to call. 


Align URx Programming with Your Team’s Goals
