Public Sector HR Scotland 2018
 

Scotland faces significant workplace and labour market challenges – from the growing role of technology and automation to new working patterns and uncertainty in the political and economic landscape. The role of HR is central to meeting these new challenges as it will ultimately be the workplace where change is delivered and organisational solutions found. Each of these challenges is equally an opportunity and it is HR who will optimise on the tools, thought leadership and technology available to allow workplaces to respond quickly, efficiently, and effectively to current and future demands.

Join Holyrood as we examine some of the key developments and opportunities currently facing the HR profession in Scotland. We will address defining concerns around attracting and retaining the right people, focussing on employee wellbeing and development, before looking at the role of strategy in planning in making the most of your existing workforce. The final session will set its sights on the future of the profession and the opportunities contained in the unprecedented pace of change.
