There’s no shortage of challenges for HR leaders in EMEA. But not to worry—we’ve got you covered. In this issue, Editor-at-Large Simon Kent provides strategic approaches to improve the employee experience as well as actionable advice on how HR can leverage technology to ease mobility and how to get the most out of the multi-generational workforce. And it that’s not enough, we also have our annual HRO Today Forum EMEA coming up to help you overcome any obstacles you are facing. Take, for example, these three common workforces concerns:
Challenge: Improving employee engagement
Solution: As organisations strive to get the most from their workforce, HR leaders understand that employee engagement is a key factor in driving productivity and retention. But what approaches actually work? Nita Clarke, director of the Involvement and Participation Association (IPA) and author of “Engaging for Success,” will share how organisations are improving engagement and how it aligns to company culture.
Challenge: Keeping great talent
Solution: In today’s complex landscape, there are numerous factors that talent acquisition leaders need to leverage in order to attract and retain tomorrow’s leaders. Hélio Vogas of HV International will take a deep dive into simple yet effective ways to attract superstars and ensure they grow their careers at your organisation.
Challenge: Understanding employer branding
Solution: TalentNow finds that 84 per cent of job seekers say the reputation of a company as an employer is important when making a decision about where to apply for a job. So how can organisations get ahead of the curve? Findings from HRO Today research, sponsored by PeopleScout, will provide leading approaches to measuring the impact of employer branding and strategies to leverage it.
This year we are back in Dublin, 4-6 November. Hope to see you there!
