It is said that people are the lifeblood of a company. This is especially true today, when state-of-the-art technology, innovation, and dynamic individuals are becoming increasingly vital to the robust growth of organisations in a digital age.
In order to attract, nurture, and retain a new breed of innovators in the workforce, organisations must first recognise the investment into those we entrust to source and identify this dynamic new generation of employees.
Once we’ve identified these employees, we then need to find a place where we can teach these employees in order to up-skill and acclimatise them to the new innovations and ideas of this generation. But where do we look? The answer is actually rather simple: HR platforms.
The HR ecosystem is transforming just as fast as any other industry in today’s digital world. HR leaders and experts throughout the world have spotted these changes early on began organising seminars, workshops, and conferences to provide platforms for discussion and knowledge sharing. In this environment of accelerated disruption, sharing is the most efficient way to get employees up to speed on the latest and greatest practices.
Forums such as DisruptHR promotes information exchange; designed to energise, inform, and empower HR leaders, business professionals and community leaders who are interested in disruptive ideas to stay competitive in a rapidly evolving market. Many also focuses on moving our collective thinking forward when it comes to talent in the workplace.
More often than not, such platforms have the opportunity to bring in renown business owners and key opinion leaders who will have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share. Achieving such successful positions does not happen unless you have the qualities and foresight that defines true and innovative leadership. It pays to listen to such wisdom. If anything, it also provides prime opportunity for networking with said leaders as well as peers in attendance.
Attending a conference helps you stay on top of the latest industry trends, learn about new strategies and think outside the box for your organisation once you return. In today’s fast-paced environment of continuous learning, this is invaluable. Be mindful about attending events and learning courses outside of your comfort zone – even if it doesn’t seem relevant to your company now, you never know when the knowledge may come in handy down the line.
Spending the time, money and personnel resources to send employees to attend HR industry conferences and workshops is no small undertaking, but with the right preparation and planning, the ROI can be well worth the investment.
