 ADP’s fourth annual HR Question Time debate is being held on Thursday 25th May at The Century Club, Westminster.

The workplace is rapidly evolving; the sheer speed of technological development, alongside instant communication and information sharing, means that there is always new innovation to read about and always a new idea to try. However, there is one thing that never changes, the importance of your people.

This event will be panelled by some of Europe’s leading HR thinkers and practitioners, don’t miss your chance to question and gain insight from them.

Key topics to be discussed:
  • Globalisation & Technology: What technological advances will we see in the workplace within the next 10 years?
  • The Gig Economy: Will ‘gigging’ become the norm?
  • The Impact of Brexit: Has Brexit affected employee engagement?
  • Career Progression: Attracting the right applicants to cut time to hire.
  • Change Management: Implementing change without disrupting your workforce.
