As we enter an era of constant change and innovation, it has become essential for HR to reinvent the very foundations of talent management strategies. In order to excel amidst a series of new organisational challenges and talent expectations, HR has needed to become much more agile to stay ahead of the curve in meeting the needs of multiple stakeholders. At this year’s jobsDB HR Day we examine the role of HR as reinventors. We will showcase examples of excellence in leading transformational HR strategies that are helping attract, retain and develop talent-lifting organisations from good to great.
