Event Details

Organisations and Workplaces of the Future

We welcome leaders and HR professionals to join us in this full day event, designed to investigate the impact of global, political, financial and technological changes on organisational development and structure, including social media, employer branding and generations Y and Z.  It will be a participative event and we will consider the importance that approaches to developing engaged teams, communication strategies, work structures, valuing talent, work life balance and effective leadership will have on the success of organisations of the future.

Social media is now part of our lives and it looks likely that this will remain to be the case for future generations. It has transformed how people communicate. It is used to raise the profile of both individuals and organisations and encourage staff engagement.

Social media has been described as a barometer for public opinion; what are people saying about your organisation and the services you provide? However, social media is not without risk and needs to be handled with care. The employment law perspective will cover 


  • Recruitment;
  • Social media use by employees;
  • Social media policies;
