HR Innovation Day 2017

This years HR Innovation Day will take place on May 20, in Leipzig. The organisation is in the hands of Peter Wald, of HTWK Leipzig. As last year, the HR Trend Institute will be present. Tom Haak will give a keynote on “Artificial Intelligence: threat or opportunity for HR?”.

On HR Innovation Day,  a broad spectrum of HR topics are covered.  Besides interesting keynote lectures (some of them in English), two workshop (some in English, all with English summaries) rounds are planned,  so that there is enough time for discussions and networking. A surprise or recall workshop is a novelty in the second workshop round. Thematic focus above all is HR innovation, but classical topics of HR management will not be missed out. And: the programme is subject to change! (as of 15th  April 2017)
