What’s In Store for 2024

The public sector in Victoria is one of the largest employers in the State. Public sector organisations are constantly competing with organisations within this sector as well as externally. New talent are naturally gravitating more towards private sector roles that offer more flexibility and options that suit them. Attraction and retention of talent is one the biggest challenges the Victorian public sector faces.

There is also massive transformation going on in the public
sector, with a key driver for this transformation is its people and technology.

With this current transformation in process, the full-day Victorian 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. The program will showcase key projects, best-practice, and insights to demonstrate how government can sustain its transformation trajectory and build a world-class workforce.
