Welcome to HR Heroes address from JC Townend, CEO LHH UK & Ireland 

My HR time: Invest in your own development

Creating the best mindset and sustainability for personal growth and career activism requires intentional focus and energy.

  • What is your understanding of the most in demand skills for HR this year and next?
  • How are you creating time for yourself to reflect and explore your skill fit in our transforming world of work?

As we explore creating the mindset for personal growth we also acknowledge the challenge within HR to deliver with urgency given our VUCA world, and how we navigate these tensions validating the importance of these sessions.

Speakers: Rob Sayers-Brown Senior Consultant, LHH & Sinead Laverty Client Director, LHH

Performance management in a hybrid world

09.15 - 10.15

During the early phases of the pandemic, survival mode for most businesses meant that to some degree performance management was ‘off the hook’ so to speak.

Businesses were focussed on adapting to get through the imminent challenges, and as such, for some this meant putting performance management on hold.  However, as the pandemic continues and hybrid working remains a new constant for managers to handle, performance management can no longer ‘hide’.

We explore ways performance management has had to adapt over time and how, now, more than ever, it needs to be reimagined to support this new reality. 

Speakers: Collette Andrewartha, LHH & Jenny Chou, Principal Consultant, LHH
