How to keep up with HR disruption

by |

Advancing technology is enabling HR departments to streamline processes and reduce time-consuming administrative work. At the same time, technology is also supplanting entire industries and displacing workers.

What does the future hold for HR professionals in New Zealand?

At the upcoming National HR Summit New Zealand, hear from Drew Williams, Head of People Operations at Auckland Council, Marc Figgins, GM People, Revenue & Employee Experience at Air New Zealand; and Johnny Farquhar, CEO and Founder of PreviewMe about:

  • How will the rising gig economy affect talent attraction and retention?
  • Can technology improve employee diversity, close gender pay gaps and enhance health and safety?
  • Will areas of HR practice become obsolete with advancing technology?
  • How will technology affect the career path of junior HR professionals?

The National HR Summit is shaping up to be a key HR event on the NZ calendar. Not only will you learn about best practice solutions to HR’s current challenges and get to network with your peers, a special keynote address by renowned mountaineer Peter Hillary, son of the late Sir Edmund Hillary, will have you entranced with his story of resilience and passion.
