Modern HR leaders must possess a unique combination of skills, creativity, and intuition in order to succeed in a world where the pandemic and economic downturn have resulted in significant shifts, including hybrid and remote work, digital transformation, and employee burnout.

During this panel discussion, our panelists will draw on the study’s insights and discuss how you can ensure that your organisation, team, and individuals are equipped with all the relevant leadership skills.
