ELMO NSW HR Leadership Summit


As organisations leverage innovative practices and cutting edge technology to meet the rising business and customers expectations, HR leaders are in a unique position to drive future-fit people strategy and growth agenda. Understanding the way of work is changing and how it impacts your business and people will increasingly become critical to support the organisations to move towards the future of work and workplace. Some of the key questions we will explore include how HR leaders prepare for the coming wave of workforce transformation; how to maintain the level of services that this is required to build the future workplace and meet rising business expectations; the way HR continue can continue to facilitate business conversations; how to design the people experience better through technologies; and improving diversity in the workplace. The event will once again invite 130 to 150 HR leaders from different industries to exchange ideas and challenge current thinking to prepare for tomorrow’s demands.
