As Elite Business Magazine’s readers know, there’s no excuse for poor HR management these days. And in partnership with CIPD, it’ll be said loud and clear.
Spending on average eight hours a day, five days a week, 260 days a year and beyond with colleagues would be enough to call them family. At least, that should feel like the case if your company has its HR and employee well-being policies up to scratch – and in this day and age, there’s no excuse not to.
For example, research by Personal Group shows many businesses very much live in the dark ages over mental health awareness compared to the rest of Britain, yet the majority of employees seek training on how to identify and address it in their colleagues. And with the accessibility of modern technology, fostering the best working environment for staff is a feat within any HR manager and business owner’s grasp.
That’s why Elite Business Magazine is proud to join forces with the CIPD Festival of Work – the well-known two-day event bringing professionals, learning and development experts, business leaders and technologists together to push the envelope of what’s seen as possible in the workplace. With talks from heavy hitters like the chair of the Human Rights Foundation Garry Kasparov, chief economic advisor of the Centre for Economic and Business Research Vicky Pryce, co-founder of the Cyborg Foundation Neil Harbisson and plenty more, this is nothing short of the mecca for how workplaces should run.
We would know. As Britain’s dedicated title for small to medium-sized companies, Elite Business understands what makes the average SME owner tick and how the conversation around HR has rapidly evolved since our birth nearly a decade ago. Whether it’s analyses over why millennials are rejecting jobs with ugly offices, features exploring how to ditch overtime working cultures or news about the latest technological wonders shaping recruitment, HR’s an ingredient to the business mix our readers appreciate the value of.
Hand-in-hand with the CIPD Festival of Work, this topic’s set to reach fresh eyes in Britain’s business landscape, as well as bring groundbreaking ideas to the table for HR managers and company owners looking to take their firm into the 21st century.
The CIPD’s Festival of Work (12-13 June 2019, Olympia London, festivalofwork.com) promises to be a landmark event for both people professionals and business leaders. By focusing on the most innovative strategies in management, technology and learning, the festival will help you, and 7,000 of your colleagues, to harness the latest transformations and drive a human future of work. With 7,000+ attendees, 160+ inspiring speakers, filled with inspirational live experiences and challenging ideas, it’s the ultimate celebration of people in the workplace.
