With its canals, world-famous museums, and historical sights, Amsterdam is one of the most romantic and beautifulÂ cities in Europe. We are excited to be back again for the 2018 HRO Today Forum EMEA, 5 to 7 November. Recognition,Â learning, and networking are all part of the plan as delegates will hear from industry thought leaders and experts,Â discover the talented companies and individuals receiving awards during our gala and awards luncheon, and meet HRÂ professionals from around the region.
The HRO Today Services and Technology Association is a global association of HR executives, thought leaders, andÂ industry experts working in roles as practitioners, providers, and analysts. Whilst the Forum is an excellent opportunityÂ for our members and each of the Forum delegates to participate in thought leadership through great conversationsÂ and best practice sharing, the association allows you to continue these actions daily. If you are not already a memberÂ of the HRO Today Global HR Association, I urge you to do so to keep the conversation, connections, and learning activeÂ every month.
Association benefits include monthly Thought Leadership Councils (TLCs) on topics about talent acquisition andÂ management, employee services and benefits, and outsourcing. The monthly committee members can connect with HRÂ leaders across the globe to discuss key practices and work to set standards and practices for the industry. Our memberÂ network enables connection among peers in the industry and allows you to enhance and grow your network. As well,Â our monthly newsletter, podcasts, demos, and more provide access and information that you need to be successful inÂ your role.
By engaging in our Forums and the global HR association, you become part of the conversation. You allow otherÂ delegates and members the opportunity to get to know you and share your stories. Leaders are everywhere. ExposeÂ yourself to thought leaders, and you begin the process of becoming a social business: real people with real faces talking toÂ real industry experts, customers, and buyers. HR leaders are always looking for new ideas and solutions to solve problems.Â Are you willing to give it to them? And tell me, what do you think? What does thought leadership mean to you?
