Event Overview

Embracing Evolving HR Functions and Redefining the Future of Work

Change has been a constant within the public sector as policies, systems and procedures have evolved and taken new forms to adapt to current demands. This transformation has challenged long-standing practices within government, but more importantly, has given rise to new opportunities.

While many will continue to embrace a work-from-home or hybrid schedule, the big question is no longer about WHERE we work, but HOW we work. Current efforts are focused on creating a more connected, seamless, and accessible government through the modernization of HR functions. The transformation of HR service delivery will effectively alter and redefine the future of work. While governments invest in the latest systems and technologies, it is up to HR leaders to champion this change throughout their teams.

Join the last instalment of our HR and Future of Work National Insights series to gain further understanding of the challenges, successes, and opportunities within the HR transformation journey. Gain valuable insights as to how HR leaders are shaping the future of work and how to further support the modernization of HR service delivery within your own organization.
