The HR Masterclass will help HR leaders understand the latest HR trends, including employee engagement, health and wellbeing, HR strategy, HR technologies, talent acquisition, financial wellbeing, learning & development and more.

During the first hour of the event, you will hear five case study filled presentations, that are capped at 10 minutes each to cut out the waffle.
