AGENDA: North West Employers Conference: Fit for the Future

Connecting, Reflecting, Energising… The Sequel – 30 March 2023.

Building on the success of the annual conference 2022, North West Employers held another conference in March this year, inviting our members to join us in coming together to celebrate all that’s good around HR, Talent and Workforce in the North West.

We had a real focus on re-imagining the future of work, and had a great mix of input and thinking space to bring colleagues together, stimulate ideas and discussion about how we take our organisations forward, with a shot of positive psychology in the afternoon – making sure we’re in a good place to be our best selves and make all of this happen!

We had a great turnout. For those of you that were able to join us, we hope that you enjoyed the day to take advantage of the opportunity to connect, reflect & energise!
