11th October 2023 | 8:30am

Venue: etc. venues, Chancery Lane, London, WC2A 1HL

In this age of disruption, automation, and rapid change within organisations, HR functions are struggling to keep up. Therefore, HR leaders are under intensified pressure to design and deliver outstanding experiences throughout the employee life cycle, to engage with individuals in a meaningful way, both personally and digitally, ultimately fostering an employee-centric approach.

A positive employee experience has numerous benefits, such as increased retention, attracting high-quality employees, building trust in the company, and even enhancing the customer experience. Organisations are now required to shift from a purely transactional HR model to one that prioritises interactions and fuels business agility. HR leaders need to create a new people-focused design for the HR function. Join this in-person roundtable as we discover ways to design and establish an employee-centric HR operating model that is centered on creating the best possible positive employee experience.
