The 2019 UHR Conference and Exhibition took place in Manchester from 21 to 24 May.
As in previous years the conference was the place for HR professionals working in higher education to meet their peers and listen to a great mix of plenary speakers. Workshops, legal sessions, social time and an exhibition also featured in a packed programme rounded off by our Gala Dinner and UHR Awards for Excellence.
It goes without saying that Manchester is a great city whether you think of that greatness in terms of its sporting heritage, its amazing music and cultural impact, or its industry. The bee has long been known as a symbol of the city and was first incorporated into the Manchester city coat of arms in 1842. The industrious teamwork of the bee hive – well we know all about the work ethic in HR teams, and we’re proud to have adopted the bee as a symbol of UHR2019.
The conference was held at the Hilton, Manchester Deansgate, right in the heart of the city.
The 2019 UHR Annual Conference focused on HR’s key role in shaping our organisational cultures in responding to current and anticipated sector changes including:
The Conference provided a forum for thought leadership and stimulating discussion around these and other issues affecting the culture and success of our organisations. Within the programme of an exciting line up of plenary speakers, workshops, legal sessions, evening social activities as well as a fantastic Gala Dinner and the UHR Awards, there were ample opportunities for networking with colleagues working in and with the HE sector.
