Event Details

CIPD Conference 17

CIPD, the professional body for HR and people development, is on a journey to put HR and L&D at the heart of the changing face of work and working lives. When it comes to ensuring that work is a force for good, our profession has an important role to play as the experts on people, work and change. The CIPD Ireland’s annual conference on 27 April 2017, we will explore how we can shape the future of work by anticipating the changes to work and the work environment, attract, manage and retain the right people in the right jobs, all the while supporting diversity, inclusion, well-being and strategic organisational success.

We will hear about the impact and implications of the revolutionary and disruptive changes in the digital, educational and societal spheres from Paolo Gallo of WEF. CIPD’s CEO will present the professional framework of the future and discuss how the people profession can lead the charge to champion better work for all. Well-being and its key link to ROI will be reflected on, along with managing learning and organisational development. CIPD Ireland award winners will present on the themes of empowerment and change.  

Join us for an inspiring conference and dinner to learn and debate:

  • the implications of the fourth Industrial revolution for your workplace
  • the trends affecting the workforce of tomorrow
  • the groundwork to ensure the HR People profession is fit for purpose
  • how to design organisations to empower and engage talent
  • how to be create agile and empowering leaders and organisations
  • How we ensure we, and our leaders continue to learn and adapt

Chief Human Resources Officer of the World Economic Forum to address conference

Paolo Gallo, Chief Human Resources Officer and Member of the Executive Committee of the World Economic Forum, will speak at the CIPD conference on 25 April 2017 in Croke Park on Shaping the future of work.

Paolo shares the Forum’s insight into the arrival of the fourth industrial revolution, with revolutionary and disruptive changes in the digital, physical and biological spheres. He explores how it will impact our lives and workplaces, our ability to manage and adapt to these changes while showing responsible leadership with a strong moral compass.

Having previously worked in European Bank for Reconstruction and Development as well as the World Bank, Paulo is familiar with Ireland and our economic challenges. He is a regular contributor to the Forum’s thought leading Agenda magazine.

Join us for an inspirational day exploring how HR and L&D professionals are shaping the future of work and the workplace. Much is mooted that technology will rule the future workplace. Often lost in the conversation is the person. CIPD research demonstrates that the future of work is human; and the HR profession is pivotal in carving this future. CIPD Ireland is convening a growing community of business leaders, HR professionals, policy makers, thought-leaders, academics to progress the debate around the future of work is human.

You will engage with lightning talks and café conversations where delegates explore and share whether the future of work really should, can and will be human and if so, how to support, develop and harness the power into a successful, productive and fulfilled workforce!
