Creating a new vision for work

In recent months our world of work has been turned on its head as we entered a global pandemic, creating unprecedented disruptions to workplaces, presenting new challenges for HRDs globally and substantially accelerating our focus on the future of work. But amidst the chaos, could the disruption present more of an opportunity than a challenge as we rethink and re-imagine the future, restructure and reskill our workforce and ultimately reboot our economy? 

We are excited to announce that we are committed to bringing you Ibec’s flagship HR Leadership Summit virtually this year, on October 22. Using a combination of an immersive 3D virtual conference platform with live studio broadcasts, you can interact with peers and expert speakers, network, visit a virtual exhibition and more – all from the comfort of your own desk.  

Our carefully selected thought leaders will inspire you and provide practical takeaways for you to implement. Save the date and allow yourself the time to take stock and be re-energised with a day of unmissable sessions examining the future of HR. 

Expect a strong mix of the inspirational and the practical. On the agenda themes will include: 

  • Investment in leadership
  • Humanity in work - how we build engagement and trust with remote teams or low paid workers
  • Building company culture and onboarding with dispersed teams
  • The accelerating pace of technology and AI and the future workforce 
  • How diversity and inclusion are shaping the next work revolution 

Gary Hamel, one of the world’s most influential and iconoclastic business thinkers, will deliver the keynote speech. Drawing on his new book ‘Humanocracy’, Gary will challenge us to think differently in how we manage, lead and organise our workforce and show us how to make the leap from a management model that maximises compliance to one that maximises contribution.

More speakers will be announced shortly.
