Exclusive One Day Conference

Exploring what the future holds for work in Ireland, identifying the challenges for employers and examining likely changes and trends

Royal Marine Hotel, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin

Date: 21st June 2018

Come to this unique conference and learn about new insights, trends and strategies to enable you plan and improve your success in attracting and retaining the people your business or organisation could grow with.  

Ireland leads the European Union in economic growth and employment is almost at full capacity. While this is great news economically, it brings unique challenges for many Irish companies and organisations as they continue to grow and more people are needed to fill positions. Add that to the challenge of employees evolving attitudes to a typical working life, seeking opportunities with newer approaches to employment, greater engagement in the workplace, clearer career paths, competitive salary and retention models, pay equality and gender pay gaps, a constantly changing business environment and a changing mind-set to what constitutes ‘work’ and the challenges can mount up. 

This annual event typically sell out quickly, so prompt booking is strongly advised to secure your place at the Early Bird Rate of €395.00 + VAT (Normal rate €495.00 + VAT)

Please note the early bird discount can close sooner than expected once a certain amount of seats fill up, therefore your prompt booking is strongly advised to avoid disappointment

What is the current picture of employment in Ireland?  What do young people want from a job?

What are the top 5 challenges facing employers at the moment?

Staff Retention

  • What exactly is a competitive salary and how do you stay competitive in a constantly changing business environment?
  • Why do staff leave
  • How do you create a great place to work
  • What do staff want now from a job.

Diversity – Pay Equality and the Gender Gap:

  • This is big news now but how do we fair out in Ireland
  • How is this issue being addressed
  • Can we learn anything form Iceland – It is now illegal for men to be paid more than women.

Thinking outside the Box – the plus’s and minuses

  • Remote access – working from home and the mobile workplace – is it / can it work better?
  • What are the financial benefits?
  • What do staff think about this system
  • What do managers think about this system?

Your company / organisations culture

  • How important is culture and what should you do to highlight / improve it? Is this the only attraction for people? Is it real or perceived by the management?   
  • What kind of culture do employees say they want to work in.

Promotion – Is that what we all want?

  • Do you think every person who joins the company feels the need to be a leader?
  • Clarity of the career path desired?

The changing face of the workplace

  • How do you plan for – Mental health issues? Social media? Diversity and inclusion?  
  • What are the influences that need real consideration? (Social Media / Art Intel / Employee Happiness / Work – Life Balance?)
  • How will this change over the next five years in Ireland? What, in particular will be different?

Leadership in an ever changing landscape.

  • Old style v’s new-  the debate
