AUCKLAND: Future Technology - what you need to know

Join Auckland Branch and Melissa Crawford, GM of Future Work at Vector to better understand and prepare for the workplace of tomorrow.

Melissa will provide an interactive and engaging session on understanding how HR practitioners can educate themselves in future tech as well as developing the necessary skills toolkit. Future tech offers many opportunities for organisations and HR has a pivotal role to play in that. Preparing organisations for the ‘workplace of tomorrow’ is a challenge but developing timely capabilities in people will make this transition smooth.

The evening will begin with networking from 5:30 to 6 pm, followed by an interactive session by Melissa and will end with Q&A.
