About the Event

As the North faces a year of further changes, talent shortages, new employment models and increased expectations of equity and inclusion across the workplace, how can HR and TA Leaders plan and deliver the skills needed to realise the strategic goals of their organisations?

There are no magic solutions but, with a combination of subject experts and industry peers, perhaps there are some great ideas to be shared?

Be part of the discussion by joining us on Tuesday 9th November
