The role of HR has evolved in the decade since the National HR Summit was first held. Increasingly, HR directors and people managers are being called upon to add value across all aspects of business strategy and operations, not just people issues. HR has moved from supporting those in leadership, to having their own seat at the table.
We’ve listened to your feedback and the new-look National HR Summit reflects these changing times. You will still enjoy the parts you love about the National HR Summit including insightful presentations, a fun-filled Expo, interactive workshops and valuable networking against a backdrop of stunning harbour views at the iconic Luna Park Sydney. However you will find the program for 2014 has changed, moving away from HR's day-to-day accountabilities to focus on the leadership and business skills you need to succeed. Award-winning HR and business leaders will provide insight on how to increase your commercial skills and be a better partner to the senior executive team.
The 12th annual National HR Summit will enhance your skills across the following areas:
- HR’s seat at the table: Master your own leadership presence
- Best-practice change management
- New workplace bullying laws and the changing employment law landscape
- Build credibility: Gain support for your HR initiatives
- Future workforce trends and the impact of technology
- Managing mental health risks in the workplace
- Connecting employee engagement and business strategy
