The FHRD 2014 Annual HR Conference took place on the 17th October 2014 at the Radisson Blu Resort & Spa, Malta Golden Sands. Each year around three hundred professionals from different businesses and organisations working in HR, learning and development, people management and consultancy, gather for the FHRD’s Annual HR Conference.
This year’s conference entitled “Talent Retention – Turnover into Tenure” focused on talent management as a general theme. The conference comes at a time when economic recovery is slowly taking hold. Caution has now been replaced by the need to take action as companies position themselves for growth. However the workforce today has changed. Skills are increasingly scarce and unevenly distributed across the global economy. This together with increasing demographic pressures has challenged the sourcing and retention of talent. This year’s HR Conference invited companies and HR professionals in attendance to a call for action. Participants were incited to re-think their business strategy by developing innovative new ways of finding people, developing capabilities and sharing expertise.
The conference featured three Keynote Speeches and six workshops with twelve speakers spanning the following tracks:
- Leadership and development
- Attracting, engaging and retaining talent
- Trends in talent management
- Implementing HR data analytics to achieve business goals
