Parallel : The future of HR flexibility and remote work
At LinkedIn, these past 18 months have taught us an important lesson: the one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t actually fit anymore. We’ve learned that every individual and every team works differently, so there’s no reason to go back to how things were pre-pandemic. Instead, we’re embracing flexibility, both hybrid and remote roles. Today we have an opportunity to build on what we’ve learned to better prepare for the future of work. Hear from Talent and HR leaders as they discuss how they are preparing from these changes and the learnings they have had along the way.
Speakers: Lisa Finnegan - LinkedIn, Diane Moody - DSM
Panel discussion : How to become a future proof the ever changing skillset of the CHRO.
As CHRO's it learning and development of our employees is an important topic on our agenda's. But what about us? Due to the fact that the role of the CHRO is changing in a rapid phase, it is important to stay on top of our game. Let's take a look at the basic skillset of the CHRO but more importantly what has been changing over the last years.

- Hard and soft skills
- Agility, versatility and resilience
Speakers: Hilde Garssen - KPN, Danielle van Alewijn - Swapfiets, Mark Van Bijsterveld - Signify
Leadership presentation : No Light without Shadow
In a world confronted with recreating its way, we are now all invited to reflect, reevaluate and regenerate. Who am I? What do I stand for? How do I want to be, moving forward? Such a rich inner and outer dialogue is the privilege and challenge of generations that go through societal disruption. But how do we carry this dialogue with ourselves and each other in an honest and meaningful way? How do we no longer shy away from our Shadows and instead learn from them how to embrace the Light?

Professor Smaranda Boros encourages you as a leader to take responsibility for your inner dialogue, so that instead of casting a long Shadow on others, you can be part of the solution. Within this frame, we will discuss how to create inclusive and innovative organisations, organisations with purpose who are aware of the world, embedded in the world and contribute to it.
Speaker: Smaranda Boroş - Vlerick Business School
Keynote : It’s time for HR to reinvent itself in a tight labour market
Too often, HR policy is still focused only on permanent employees and not on all workers in an organization. Many organizations now employ people who look at work differently. They are temporarily employed, connected to the organization as a self-employed person or as an external service provider. Yet these groups are systematically overlooked in HR policy.

The book "The End of HRM" offers tools to address the HR challenges of the workforce of the future and to reinvent itself. The old HR paradigm must be abandoned and be replaced by new thinking. This book provides an overview of these changes and a new model for a sustainable total workforce strategy. This makes the book a must for any HR professional who wants to respond to a complex tight labor market.
