Unconference preview: ‘The New World of Work’ from ConnectingHR

The only “unconference” for HR professionals is back on 20 October with ConnectingHR’s event “The New World of Work”.

#ConnectingHR, the Twitter-based HR community, is back for the third time with the most interactive HR event of the season. Bringing together the knowledge at the cutting edge of human resources, this is no ordinary conference – no pitching, no event management companies, no big budgets, no hard selling from sponsors and no fixed agenda.

The event is highly interactive and participative. There will be industry experts and thought leaders in attendance but they are not driving the discussion or giving any keynote speeches. The “agenda” is currently being finalised and you can join in the conversation at connectinghr.org.

Under the theme of “the new world of work”, attendees will be asking and answering questions including:

  • are existing organisation models sustainable in a new economic future? and
  • what is the future model of “employment”?

These questions will cut across a range of people-focused subjects including engagement, reward, learning and development, resourcing and performance management.

There will be no long keynotes or seminars, but attendees will be joined by influential HR people and will be able to actively discuss and learn directly from them – and contribute to the discussion. It’s the only HR conference where attendees can decide what they want to learn and then make sure that it happens.

Attendees will also have an opportunity to attend all of the sessions – these consist of small discussion groups, and everyone is free to move between groups to get a well-rounded overview – or stay and enjoy a deep discussion on one subject.

Special tickets cost £75 each when booking two. If you are a supplier to the HR market you can purchase these and bring a client or friend along, or anyone can buy a single ticket for £99. The price includes all sessions, lunch and networking drinks afterwards. Buy tickets here.
