Overview of the event

"Human capital" is sometimes used synonymously with "human resources", although human capital typically refers to a narrower effect. Human resources are no longer just recruitment and training of employees, but also a part of future strategy for any company.

In this fast-moving world characterised by constant change, HR transformation is not optional. Organisations have to overcome decades of legacy systems, siloed working, lack of agility, among other obstacles.

At HR Innovation Summit we will discuss and share key challenges along the digital transformation journey and success stories in optimizing employee experience.
