The CIPD Jersey branch’s annual conference will focus on the future of work, looking at how business leaders and HR professionals will need to plan for a change in culture, technology and wellbeing support whilst keeping up with the demands of the workforce and business environment.
Entitled ‘Fast Forward’, the conference will take place at the Pomme d’Or Hotel on Thursday 22 November with Carl Walker, Chairman of the Jersey Consumer Council, compering the event.
Jayne Coppin, CIPD Jersey Branch Chair, said: ‘We are delighted to have attracted some high-profile speakers to this event. The Future of Work is a hot topic area given the fast-moving pace of the working environment. It is important that employers look to provide support, ensuring that the objective of achieving financial targets is offset with well-constructed strategies supporting employees. We believe that those attending the Conference will gain a real insight into the areas that will be key to the success of future planning and will help to underpin business success.”
Guest speakers will include:
Dr Nicola J Millard – Customer Experience Futurologist, BT Global Services Innovation Team;
David D’Souza – Membership Director, CIPD;
Alex Bailey – Leader, Bailey & French;
Katie Bailey – Professor of Work and Employment, King’s Business School, London; and
Dan Hare – Director, Continuum.
