Session 2 - HR & Recruitment Technology Selection

No business that takes the recruitment of talent seriously can operate without some aspect of technology to support them. But choosing the right technology solution for your business is a massive challenge especially when getting it wrong can have devastating outcomes. Our expert panel have not only been responsible in leading the vendor selection process for major organisations such as Huawei, Capita and Next, but have now made a career out of helping companies get their vendor selection right first time.

Session 3 - Diversity, Equality & Inclusion

2.45 PM - 3.45 PM
Research shows that increased diversity in a workplace increases diverse thinking and breeds innovation in businesses. This isn’t a tick boxing exercise and it doesn’t have to be a moral dilemma, but be under no illusions that DE&I strategy will influence company culture and will subsequently influence the best talent out there to join you or not. An outstanding panel of experts dedicated to getting this right will provide clarity and perspective on this massively important topic.
