We were delighted to have David Collings, Professor of Human Resource Management at DCU, as a guest speaker at Ibec's HR Leadership Summit in October. The impactful research he and his colleagues have conducted into the lessons from the HR response to Covid-19 spotlights many lessons that will continue to resonate as we manage through the current economic challenges facing business.

In this episode of Work Talks, Maeve McElwee, Ibec Executive Director of Employer Relations, sits down with Professor Collings after the Summit to follow up on the discussion on HR’s significance during the Covid-19 pandemic, the strategic and operational reach of HR as a central point of the Organisation, and the opportunities for HR to grow and sustain its strategic influence.
