The 2nd Annual HR Transformation for Life Sciences Summit, scheduled for the 18th and 19th of October 2018, will bring together leading human resources decision-makers and practitioners to discuss the most important challenges within the industry — and how best to tackle them. HR professionals and experts will share their experiences and real-world examples, re-thinking what the life sciences recruitment engine might look like in the future and to discuss ways to future-proof current HR methods. There’s not a single path to drive value through HR and in today’s competitive, fast-moving world; it is required to have an ongoing commitment to learning regardless of your current scope of work or career path. Not every initiative is transformative, but because the HR function is a key business asset, it’s up to the HR leaders to find the best way to embrace bold change in the digitised world. This two-day event will provide an environment for HR experts and industry leaders to directly engage with each other and obtain valuable insights on the future demands of the role of HR in life sciences. This summit will address issues in reinventing organisational structures, reshaping the recruitment and hiring processes, redefining the employee experience, workforce analytics, and digitalisation. It will shed light on existing HR technologies and rising demands of the life science industry by sharing knowledge and best practices on how to attract, develop, and retain talent. It is an honour to host this summit and it’s a privilege to invite you to partake. We look forward to welcoming you in October!
