Over the past few months, we noticed a commonality in pressure points and issues that had arisen due to the pandemic and the new norm with the role of HR and Talent Leads for their businesses and workforces.

After speaking with a lot of our clients we felt there was an opportunity for us to connect and discuss the future of Talent Acquisition, where the pressure points lie and how it could change for the better.

We will donate $5 for every attendee and panellist involved to Headspace, an Australian non-profit organisation for youth mental health.

We have 4 guest Talent Acquisition Leads who will share some of the innovative ways their organisations are fostering.
