Sydney, Australia
This program is hosted by AGSM Executive Education.

ICEDR sponsor companies may send 4 HR leaders. ICEDR partner business schools may send 1 participant.

The world of work is changing at an ever quickening pace. Buffeted by the winds of disruption, Australian organizations are facing an unprecedented challenge to modernise their human capital practices and remain competitive. In an “adapt or perish” style battle for survival, HR teams find themselves squarely in the front line.

However, as a function established to manage processes and policies, HR hasn’t traditionally been called on to innovate. So how will we develop innovation capability to deliver what’s needed in the future of work? In this interactive session we’ll ask and answer some of the big questions on the minds of CHRO’s in Australia today:

What is HR innovation?
Who does it well?
How can we develop innovation capability?

Who Should Attend

- Sponsor companies may send 4 senior level HR leaders.
- Partner business schools may send 1 participant.
