HRD is delighted to announce the next iteration of The HRD Collective has been confirmed to take place in the spring of 2023. On the 28th February 2023, the senior HR and people leader community will come together again to tackle their most pressing priorities, in a forum designed for highly focused interactive learning and collaboration.

The challenges that organisations face are becoming increasingly more complex, with shifting talent markets, economic downturns, and a rise in ‘unprecedented’ events and crises.  The role of the CHRO must evolve to meet these challenges, by creating long-term strategies that will make their businesses future-fit, whilst managing the short-term interventions required to keep things moving.

Approximately 500 senior decision-makers from people and HR teams across Europe and the UK will participate in a fully-virtual experience, guided by subject matter experts from a range of backgrounds, both corporate and consultative.

These expert speakers and facilitators will deliver a series of interactive and inspiring sessions, including topics such as driving internal talent growth and markets, HR’s role in developing a sustainability mission and more. Evelyn Doyle, Head of People & Culture International, Patagonia, will kickstart the day with a keynote session and insights into Patagonia’s commitment to being a purpose-focused business, and how culture has driven and enabled the changes they have undertaken.

In October 2022, audiences at the previous Collective heard from Jorrit van de Togt, Executive Vice President Shell Downstream HR, Shell, share his thoughts on leading with a ‘people-first’ perspective, and how they have used this to drive better collaboration and creativity at Shell. Attendees described the experience at The Collective as a ‘microlearning opportunity to hear from various HR leaders and experts. A great forum to hear about solutions to problems we all face.’

The HRD Collective is a forum for highly-focused learning, developed out of in-depth research with the HRD Community. The day is designed with the priorities of senior leaders in mind, tackling the issues most important to the continued success of their businesses and personal development, in an environment focused on peer-to-peer collaborative thinking.

Participants of The Collective can expect to explore:

  • How to turn the tide on the talent war through investing in internal talent marketplaces
  • The role of HR in developing ESG and sustainability capabilities
  • The changing role of leadership, and changing the conversation from ‘soft’ to ‘power’ skills
  • Turning DE&I efforts into business wide transformations
  • Managing continuous change from an employee experience perspective
  • How to create flexible workforce planning strategies for unplannable futures
