Smarter World,
Smarter Work

Wrap up

Over 400 senior HR professionals attended this year’s Ibec HR Leadership Summit. The event focused on preparing Ireland for a new era of work. Speakers shared their insights about the future of work and how they see emerging technologies and new behaviours changing how work is organised and the activities we engage in. Diversity, evolving skillsets and radically new leadership styles need to be factored into the mix for businesses planning ahead.
