The Second Annual HR Conference 2017
Human Resources is a vital part of every company, responsible not only for recruiting new talent, but also for retaining and training existing talent. In 2014, 650,000 workers changed jobs every quarter in the UK, causing businesses to lose out on key talent and training investments. Research by BambooHR suggests that this is often related to bad management, insufficient training and a lack of personal development opportunities. Both the government and companies themselves have taken steps to address problems in the workplace that might cause companies to struggle to retain key talent. The gender pay gap in 2014 was 19.1% for both full and part time workers, prompting the government to introduce equal pay transparency for companies with over 250 employees. Similarly, the 2015 Shared Parental Leave Scheme and the 2015 Pensions Scheme Act help to ensure that employees have equal access to a full range of benefits. Many HR departments are combatting the increase in administrative workloads caused by improving legislation by investing in innovative people management technology. A 2015 Towers Watson Survey found that 88% of business are looking to invest in more innovative HR technologies.

A wide number of topics will be covered on the day, and delegates can expect speakers to discuss challenges, successes and case studies around the interest areas below:
- Recruitment and retention are key issues for HR departments, particularly the retention of top talent. Public sector austerity and the recovery of the economy as a whole have each brought their own challenges. Some public sector workers are showing reduced commitment due to broken promises around training and promotion. In the private sector, 79% of the respondents to a 2014 TINYpulse study stated that they did not feel valued for their work, a key factor in many workers’ decision to change jobs.
- Changes to workplace legislation have created new challenges for HR departments in both small and large organisations. Essential HR reported that 90% of the extra workload created by new legislation will be in business process, administration and payroll. In addition to this, both the 2015 Pensions Scheme Act and the 2015 Shared Parental Leave Scheme will be particularly problematic for small business that lack the resources to cover for absent staff and implement new processes.
- Many companies are harnessing new talent management software to improve processes and relieve the administrative burden on HR departments. In 2015, the Towers Watson Survey found that 88% of business surveyed were looking to spend more than the previous year on HR technologies. HR apps are revolutionising people management, making it easier for company employees to access HR benefits and improving HR processes.
