Unique 1 day HR Event - Hosted by Corporate Research Forum

Dear HREC Network member,

Corporate Research Forum (CRF), a leading European HR leaders’ network, is delighted to invite members of the HR Executives Connected Group to a unique event with Jay Conger, Professor of Leadership Studies at Claremont McKenna College in California.

Taking place in Amsterdam on Thursday 7 July 2016, Jay Conger will lead a dynamic and insightful session examining how to better align talent management with the needs of the organisation, and how current practice can be improved.

For most CEOs, talent is at or near the top of their priority list, and yet lack of talent remains a major obstacle in achieving organisational goals. The talent needs of organisations are changing rapidly, but many are failing to respond at pace and are finding themselves behind the curve in attracting and developing the people they need to deliver sustainable performance. This masterclass will provide the latest insights and learnings from one of the world’s senior authorities.

If you are interested in joining the 170+ organisations (including 40% of the FTSE 100 and many other global organisations such as AOL, Sony, JP Morgan, Novartis, Mercedes-Benz and Swift) on this day you can simply send me a message at as we've been granted a number of free tickets for this unique event!

Kind regards

Upcoming HREC Webinar: The Consumer Worker

02 October 2015

Every organizational crisis contains an issue AND an opportunity

The most recent HREC call this last Friday, September 25, on Business Transformation with Mark de Witte, CEO at Royal DeKuyper distilleries, was another great call in our webinar series 2015.
Reflecting on the call with Mark we learned about how every organizational crisis contains an issue AND an opportunity. The red line through any change, according to Mark, is how you can provide clarity on the job to be done, how you communicate about that and also can be transparent as a leader on what to change and how then you rebuild the confidence during the change process.
This together with 3 concrete business examples were shared by Mark last week Friday in our webinar. In case you want to receive the details on the call please send me a direct message and I’ll forward to you.
In the meantime we’re gearing up for our final webinar of the year – “The employees as consumer” with Wendy Smith – Director of new employee experiences at NCR. More details on this call will follow soon so stay tuned in
