Event overview

2023 is a year that will be defined by change and disruption. Given the current climate of uncertainty, businesses are facing a multitude of pressures, from the impact of rising inflation on organizational costs to the scarcity of talent and skills.

With greater emphasis on organizational effectiveness and agility, as well as the employee experience and employee retention, it means that CPOs have their work cut out for them trying to balance both the needs of the business and the needs of their employees.

Workplaces look vastly different now, so it’s important to prioritize the things that will make the biggest impact. Whether that’s adapting to flexibility, embedding an authentic culture of wellbeing and inclusion, upskilling managers and leaders, or focusing on retaining talent, CPOs must adapt and optimize the processes and functions that will help lead organizations into the future.

In this event, we bring together a host of global CPOs, CHROs, and HR leaders to discuss the core workplace elements that have to be considered as we look ahead to the coming year.

From recruiting challenges and the need to upskill managers and leaders, to creating a workplace culture that enables employees to develop and grow, and fosters engagement, CPOs are juggling many competing priorities in 2023.

In the wake of a pandemic and on the eve of more turbulence, CPOs and CHROs have to act like barometers, predicting and assessing the needs that impact an organization’s greatest asset – its people.

Their goal is to safeguard and future-proof, while continually seeking to evolve and innovate. It’s no easy task, but the rewards can see the transformation of workplaces into places that embody success, authenticity, and consideration.
