HR Leaders’ networking breakfast, 21 April 2016

Busy working days and a packed task-list sometimes don’t leave much room for looking at the bigger HR picture.

But if you’re a HR leader with strategic influence in your business, you can’t afford to neglect thinking time. What are competitors and peers doing? Which trends and technologies will affect your next moves?

How about a spot of strategic inspiration on us? We’ll even throw in a gourmet breakfast to fuel the brainwork.

We’re sponsoring an exciting invitation-only networking breakfast in London hosted by our colleagues at Talented Group, the international tech management search specialists.

The idea is to get HR thought leaders together to share their latest practices and spark off new ideas, sending everyone away with inspiration and context to ignite successful future plans and tactics.

Topics on the table include the future workforce and challenges of plugging the skills gap in the war for talent. We’ll explore the pros and cons of working with ‘on demand’ freelancers, vendors and temps to meet different operational needs.

Talent data analytics is another hot potato. Guaranteeing accuracy, using data to predict outcomes and understanding the implications of data-led decisions are all up for discussion.

The current guest list shows a great mix of corporate and fast-growth start-up HR leaders, including Expedia, AOL, Cloudera and Klarna. What can you learn from each other? How are your recruitment and development needs similar and different? We’re looking forward to finding out.

As you can tell, there are going to be some fascinating and enriching conversations over the coffee between people who really know their stuff.

If you’ve got something to add to the debate and would like to take new insights away for yourself, contact us and we’ll arrange for you to receive an invitation. The event takes place in Central London on Thursday 21st April, from 8:30am to 10:00am.
