HR events and conferences

Are you planning the second half of 2020, and looking for the best events to learn from top People and HR teams around the world? We’ve got your Back.

The New Work era has arrived, finally. Companies that ignore and underestimate the importance of New Work to new generations of workers are likely to fail in the market for the best talent. Ultimately, their own business might as well. 

The world of work is constantly changing: employees have different demands than they used to. Cited frequently, the place they work at should be forward-thinking and provide a great employee experience.

In today’s distributed and digital work environment, it’s easier than before for employees to reach out to their HR. Help is only one direct message on Slack away. However, it has become equally harder for People teams to keep up with requests, which can lead to frustration and bad employee service.

Today, you can easily learn from the best in the industry. Just try to attend conferences, summits and other events where the HR sector comes together to network, educate itself in seminars and workshops and discover the latest tech trends.

That’s why we’ve curated the major online and offline HR events dealing with New Work, Future of Work and HR tech scheduled for the second half of 2020. 

Yet, 2020 is not over, you still have enough time to educate yourself and build out your People strategy in your company.
