The history of the HR Advisors Conference
In January 2014 we ran the inaugural HR Advisors Conference. We know it’s a difficult role to juggle and we thought it was time there was a conference to support those in an HRA role. The 75 HRA’s who attended said it was a brilliant two days and they got a huge amount of practical tips and techniques as well as inspiration and ideas to use back on the job.
In 2015 we focused on how you become operationally strategic and really add value and had another fantastic two days of learning’s, inspiration and discussion in both Auckland and Wellington. In 2016 we focused on how HR Advisors can be culture champions and as well as New Zealand, also ran the conference in London.
London: Wednesday 12 and Thursday 13 July 2017
So what’s the focus for the HR Advisors Conference 2017?
We know that 20 years ago Personnel changed to HR. Recently HR has started to transform again and HR Advisors roles are going to morph too – with new business models changing how we work, technology and systems taking reactive work away and silo’s breaking down between talent, capability and learning.
We believe the HR Advisors role is still vital – you are at the coalface of a business advising managers and employees. In 2017 the HRA’s conference explores what the ‘new’ HR Advisors role will look like, and give you practical tools, techniques and ideas to deliver! The conference will be running in NZ, Australia and the UK and we hope to see you there!
Each year we have a fantastic line up of inspiring and knowledgeable experts to share practical tips and techniques that you can use back on the job! Here are some of the presenters you’ll hear from in 2017:
