What’s In Store for 2023

The modern workforce demands a workplace that is flexible, forward-thinking, and focused on the employee experience. Adding to this, a trusted public sector that delivers exceptional outcomes for citizens is one that is innovative, adaptive, and connected.

As the nature of work changes, so too should the HR functionality within the Victorian government.

The VIC HR Innovation Showcase 2023 will delve into key projects, best-practice and insights to demonstrate how government can sustain its transformation trajectory and build a world-class workforce.
