What’s In Store for 2024

The public sector workforce is undergoing a massive transformation. A key driver for this transformation is its people. There are mandates in review to include more work flexibility, tools to show clear career pathways, and wellbeing initiatives to alleviate fatigue and stress. There is an employee-based focus that is encouraging growth within the public sector workforce to both attract new talent and retain current talent.

The HR Innovation Roadshow 2024 is designed to equip public sector HR with the tools to build high-performing teams and deliver outcomes that benefit the country and state. Across seven major cities, each state-specific program will showcase key projects, best-practice, and insights to demonstrate how government can sustain its transformation trajectory and build a world-class workforce.
