Senior HR Forum

(Please note this session is open to HRDs, deputies and equivalent roles only)

Trust and Resilience: Responsible Business in Times of Crisis

Our Senior HR Forum this year will be led by Professor Veronica Hope-Hailey (University of Bath) and focusses on Veronica's expertise and research in the areas of trust and responsible business. Drawing on research conducted with senior leaders for the November 2020 CIPD report 'Responsible Business Through Crisis', Veronica will share insights from this, and her continuing research. This session will challenge and inspire us as leaders on the importance of trust during times of crisis, as we emerge from the pandemic and in developing new forms of 'business as usual'.

14:30 - 16:00 Inside Track Career Clinic – the Cryptic World of Executive Search

This is a ‘taster’ session targeted at HR professionals who are keen to progress in HR. The aim of the clinic is to be as practical as possible, enabling all participants to get maximum value out of it. As executive search consultants we have strong up to date insight into what it takes to be successful in a recruitment process and we would love to share this with participants.
  • Do you have several years’ work experience in HR?
  • Are you looking for motivation to further progress your career?
  • Do you feel that you are at a key stage in your career to develop behaviours and skills that will lead to a senior role?
  • Or are you responsible for talent attraction and keen to get the inside track on what executive searchers are seeing?
If so, this career clinic may be for you.
