Forget the bean bags and premium coffee. As they step into more senior leadership roles, Millennials are making profound changes in the way businesses are run. But will HR and business leaders find opportunity – or conflict – as managerial power moves to a new generation? (And are Millennials ready for the challenges Generation Z will pose to their leadership?)

Successful pre-employment screening is at the forefront of any on-boarding programme. This session explores how AI is revolutionising screening, and latest insights on engaging with millennials and an increasingly global workforce.

Which in turn will positively support how your team drive a customer centric culture in your business.

Networking Lunch

In an agile world it is becoming ever more clear that organisations are becoming constrained by their success.  For survival in the gig economy, machine economy, with disruptive ways of working, and with significant pressure on non-balance sheet risks organisations must be renewed—like a forest that must burn to allow new growth.  Organisations need to reinvent themselves to survive and grow.  And HR has a key role to play.  Sarah and Doug will approach this topic from the perspective of systems thinking, chaos theory, leadership and the learning organisation: particularly its capacity to renew and self-organise.  Combining both thought leadership in this area and experience of how the HR function this has helped bring this to life in The Coca-Cola Company; they will present a fast moving overview of how organisations need to embrace crisis and renewal
