Free workshops to transform your HR programs

One of the most popular elements of the HR Summit Melbourne will return in 2018

Free workshops to transform your HR programs

The HR Summit Melbourne returns to the Crown Promenade Melbourne next month with a program that focuses on a range of topics to take your HR practice to the next level.

HR practitioners unable to attend the main conference due to budget limitations can still experience the event by registering for one or more of the free HR workshops available at this year’s event.

The 30 and 45-minute workshops cover a range of relevant topics and are all free to attend for HR professionals. They are held as part of the HR Summit Melbourne Expo, where you can get free professional photos taken for your LinkedIn profile, meet key contacts and even go in the draw to win a $2,000 Grand Prize when you complete your expo passport.

Register online to secure your place as seating is limited in each workshop.
