Carolyn McCall, chief executive of EasyJet, is set to speak at an HR conference, her first since she left her position as chief executive of the Guardian Media Group last year.
|EasyJet CEO Carolyn McCall will speak at the Escaping Silo Syndrome event
The conference, which takes place at the Royal Society of Medicine, London, on 24 May, will be chaired by BBC Radio 5 Live’s Shelagh Fogarty and will feature a series of presentations and discussions on “silo syndrome” from speakers and panelists, including the England cricket team’s managing director Hugh Morris.
Silo syndrome, where different functions of an organisation fail to communicate and interact with each other, can affect business and HR issues such as productivity and talent management.
The conference, organised by Bernard Hodes Group and sponsored by Personnel Today, will feature discussions from a number of respected business leaders and senior HR practioners and will explore why silo syndrome is still prevalent and what businesses are doing to tackle it.
All profits from the event will be split between Bernard Hodes Group’s two chosen charities, Breakthrough Breast Cancer and the London-Wildlife-Trust-managed Camely Street Natural Park.
