Event Details


Following on from last year's CIPD Northamptonshire branch conference on attracting and retaining talent our theme for the 2018 conference is The Future of Work.  This is a half day event with keynote speakers, interactive sessions, a case study and a panel discussion.      

As the world of work changes it brings many new demands and opportunities for HR and L&D, but we also have to step up.  We have to make sure we have the skills and capabilities we need, but also that we have the insights and understanding to make a difference.  Key drivers for the future of the profession will be how we work to broader principles of what is good work and good people management and how we use evidence to drive insight and decision making.  HR professionals also need to clearly understand the outcomes that make the most difference to the performance of the organisation, but that are also responsible, ethical, and perhaps most importantly, good for people.

Our conference will explore these themes with sessions from:

  • Professor Katie Bailey from the University of Sussex

Keynote session: The Future of Work is Ethical

Imagine a future world of work where the focus is no longer merely financial performance but genuinely takes into account the needs and interests of multiple stakeholders. The so-called triple bottom line of people, purpose and profit becomes reality. What will this mean for organisations, leaders and HR professionals? Drawing on recent research into purposeful and ethical leadership and meaningful work, in this session Katie Bailey will ask what HR will look like in this new world order, and explore the barriers and enablers of successfully creating and sustaining an ethical workplace.

Her research has been published in journals such as the Harvard Business Review, and the Sloan Management Review, where her most recent article on the micro-dilemmas of ethical leadership is due to be published this year. Katie has undertaken several research projects funded by the CIPD and has written a number of reports for them on employee engagement and, in 2017, a report on purposeful leadership.  She frequently speaks at conferences around the world, and also runs workshops and training events for organisations on meaning and purpose at work.
