2019 Victoria HR Leadership Summit

Crown, Melbourne

In times of change and disruption, HR leadership is critically needed to drive engagement, progress and innovation in the new world of work. And as the nature of work changes, the HR playbook is being rewritten for the way we build a meaningful workplace culture; develop, attract and re-skill people; create collaborative experiences; learn and relearn; and transform to agile ways of working to meet the changing needs of the workforce. Be the leader your business needs to help it grow and prepare people to adapt and excel in the evolving realities.

The HR Leadership Summit was a great way to learn about what HR professional are working on. How they have contributed and added value to their organisation. It was also a great way to meet other HR professionals and learn about their experiences and companies.
Great opportunity to hear and learn from speakers willing to share their experiences.
