Public Sector HR Scotland 2019
 

Scotland faces significant workplace and labour market challenges – from the growing role of technology and automation to new working patterns and uncertainty in the political and economic landscape. The role of HR is central to meeting these new developments as it will ultimately be the workplace where change is delivered and organisational solutions found. Each of these challenges is an opportunity and it is HR who will optimise on the tools, thought leadership and technology available to allow workplaces to respond effectively to demands.

Join Holyrood as we examine some of the key developments and opportunities currently facing the HR profession in Scotland. We will address defining concerns around attracting and retaining the right people, focussing on employee engagement and development, before looking at the role of strategy in making the most of your existing workforce. Our tailored sessions have been co-designed with last year's conference delegates in order for you to get the most up-to-date knowledge on the future of HR. 

Why you should attend:
 

  • Ensure you are up-to-date with the latest priorities and potential for HR within Scotland
  • Understand the evolving challenges around recruiting, retaining and developing the right people
  • Create adaptable, responsive and flexible workplaces to improve innovation and productivity
  • Network with peers
