Lessons from the Masters wind-down to be shared at the National HR Summit

by HCA07 Dec 2016
Managing the people aspects of organisational change can be one of the most professionally challenging periods for any HR professional. The closure of the Masters chain of home improvement and hardware stores nationwide is the largest voluntary wind-down in Australian corporate history and HR professionals will have the opportunity to gain some insight into the process firsthand.
 
Masters Home Improvement HR Director Gillian Davie will share her experience leading the HR aspects of the wind-down at the 2017 National HR Summit, drawing on the key lessons learned from assisting 6,200 employees to transition into new careers. Delegates will gain insight into managing large-scale change and M&D from a people perspective and the skills and approach called for to maintain trust and dignity during tough corporate times.
 
The National HR Summit will be held at Luna Park Sydney on 29-30 March 2017.
 
Find out more about the program, which features speakers such as track cycling champion Anna Meares; Bersin by Deloitte head of research David Mallon; mental health commissioner Lucinda Brogden; and CEOs and heads of HR from Australia Post, Coca-Cola, Dymocks, Fairfax, QBE Insurance and REA Group.
 
A limited number of Super Saver tickets are available until this Friday 9 December. Visit www.hrsummit.com.au for more details and to register.
