Event Overview

Forging a Future-Ready Public Sector 

Many public sector leaders feel that they are now at a crossroads. Are governments expected to go back to normal after having worked through the volatility of the past two years, or should they embark on a new path of transformation that seems so clearly laid out for them? While governments continue to struggle with policies, structures and workflows that challenge change, at this point it’s inevitable. Change is upon us, and the only way to maintain the course is to innovate, adapt and plan for a future-focused public sector.  

People have become the driving force of transformation in government, and it is essential to recognize the importance of creating an employee-centred workspace. HR leaders are at the forefront of this change because they can influence and create policies to better serve the workforce. Accessing technologies that optimize workflows while leveraging analytics that highlight impactful data. With this data, leaders can build more inclusive and equitable teams and identify barriers in hiring processes.  

The way in which we work will never be the same. Gaining employee buy-in is crucial to creating a culture of continued learning and transformation. Training, upskilling and talent development are not only essential to retaining top talent but also building capacity for change within your organization. Delivering dynamic employee experiences that help build your future workforce is paramount to a future-ready organization.  

Come join us at our 2023 HR and Future of Work Roadshow where government leaders and experts will share with you their experiences in the trenches of transformation and innovation. They will lead keynotes, and case studies, as well as engage in thought-provoking panels, focused on top challenges, strategies and best practices as they prepare for the future of the public sector.
