Tools, innovations and solutions

Connect with the top industry players!

A unique concept bringing together business representatives, entrepreneurs, managers, specialists and researchers in the field of human resources from all industries; psychologists, representatives of central and local authorities, large consulting companies, as well as internationally renowned experts from the United States of America, Denmark, Israel, Norway, Ireland, Italy, Spain, United Arab Emirates.


 The world of work is constantly changing.

A new wave of technological revolutions is impacting traditional jobs, industries and business models. The way we work is changing; the opportunities created by globalization, technological progress and demographic changes are making us rethink the nature and meaning of “work”.

People are increasingly being employed in non-traditional industries, using technology to change the way they work; there are greater opportunities to innovate, to exercise a higher degree of autonomy and flexibility, and yet there are also significant challenges caused by the uncertainty of career paths and job security.

Leaders expectations are changing due to innovation and the evolution of a dynamic professional culture.

Flexibility and mobility in the workplace are becoming increasingly common, the impact of artificial intelligence will be significant, machine learning and deep neural networks are growing and we will be able to integrate this technology into the workplace of the future. We will also start seeing an increased value put on employee creativity and innovation as technology replaces the manual repetitive tasks.


There are greater opportunities for companies to strengthen their success in the field of human resources, improve retention, reduce skill gaps and significantly increase the adoption of talent management systems, but there are also significant challenges caused by the fierce struggle to find talent, the exodus of leaders from the workforce and the low levels of employee engagement.

“The New World of Work” conference will generate exciting and challenging discussions on the changing nature of work, providing at the same time, practical strategies and insights about how these challenges can be harnessed as opportunities for innovation and development.

Bringing together world renown analysts, practitioners and thought leaders, the two-days program is an exciting combination of thematic presentations, group discussions, bold conversations and networking opportunities, in order to provide you with the tools and ideas to increase your productivity, capitalize on opportunities and prepare for the dynamic changes in the industry.

Stelian Bogza
Commercial Director &
Co-Founder – Benefit
Stelian Bogza has an experience of over nine years in banking and finances, specifically in the business-to-business, marketing and sales divsion.

He started his career in banking in 2005, at EFG Retail Services, and within two years he was already Senior Relationship Manager at Credit Europe Bank, building a relationship with the important retailers in the marketplace in order to implement and accept the bank’s POS services. Shortly after ABN AMRO was taken over by the Royal Bank of Scotland, he was recruited for the position of Merchant Manager in the cards division of the bank, being in charge ofthe sales and advertising strategies, as well as the main customers of the bank.

In August 2009, he began his collaboration with Citibank as a Business Development & Cards Partnerships Manager, focusing exclusively on the B2B division – marketing and sales strategies for bank cards. During the four years in which he occupied this position, he implemented and managed the biggest sales network in the local banking sector: 450 retailers with over 2000 outlet stores. During that time, he started a partnership with the Ministry of Culture, through which Citibank cardholders had unlimited access to 17 of the most visited museums in Romania (the Peles Castle, the National Village Museum, Brukenthal etc), a benefit which proved to be not only unique, but also one of the most used in the banking system. One of the Citibank benefits that he implemented in Romania entailed adapting the international privilege system to include over 100 hotels, restaurants and spas in Romania.

After approximately 4 years at Citibank, in June 2013, he was recruited by Western Union for the position of Senior Manager in charge of developing bank transfer services for 12 countries in Central and Eastern Europe.

Since 2014, he and Adrian Sarbu have developed a unique system of optional benefits for employees in Romania. Stelian’s experience in banking along with Adrian’s experience in business development have helped them seize the opportunity brought by the outsourcing of services which are meant to motivate employees who want more flexible packages, adapted to their needs.

“I have chosen to be an entrepreneur after over 9 years spent working in the Romanian Banking system, where I came to understand the needs of each employee and how much they value having the option to choose the benefits offered by the company. Benefit Online is the solution I wish I had received from every company I worked for, and, now that we have launched this product onto the market, I am confident that it will make many employees happier and more motivated.”
