'Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason so few engage in it' Henry Ford

We all have to face it sooner or later, times are a-changing, and the thinking's getting smarter, sorry Henry.

Conference 2001 is about throwing back the duvet and looking your future right in the face, eyeball to eyeball and picking up where 2000's highly acclaimed HRINZ conference left off.

'The Future of Work: talent, balance, results' is a mixture of challenges you probably never thought, or hoped, would affect HR. It will provide lots of answers, yet will ask even more questions. Offering a mix of opportunities to learn in 'how to' workshops, a chance to visit interesting sites and become involved in forums and interactive sessions, as well as hearing from respected 'thought leaders', this conference will be delivered in our special way through interaction, debate, and networking, using passion and intellect and the best HR has to offer.

Stressing the role (again) that communication and technology plays in HR, this conference will take you into the next phase of your working life and beyond using three main streams.

Talent will be people focussed and will embrace topics around the war for talent, building a knowledge culture, developing leadership and retaining top talent.

Balance will cover new working methods such as e-working and implications of the e-working explosion, the role HR plays in advocating and encouraging diversity, family friendly work arrangements and work/life balance.

Results will look at performance management, change management in the new e-environment, innovation management, leadership and the role of HR as a business partner.

Conference 2000 'Communication and Technology: the final frontier for HR?' not only sold out but achieved our highest satisfaction rate in living history. So be warned - procrastinate till the last minute to register and be left behind, in every sense of the word.
