NORTHLAND BRANCH: The 2021 Employment Landscape

We’re excited to welcome Myriam Heynen, a Human Resources and Employment Relations Consultant based in Auckland to Whangarei to present at our first ‘in-person’ event for the year.

The last year was challenging for most of us with the massive changes many businesses and organisations had to manage, and we now have a majority Government elected on a platform of further change in the employment space. What might the year ahead hold for us?

Myriam will provide us with some insight as to what is and may be on the horizon and how we might prepare our businesses for this. We’ll ensure there’s an opportunity to ask questions in this interactive session.
