Conference producer Sandra Basiri, of Key Media, says attendees will gain insights into “strategic and practical HR issues that senior executives are facing across the country”.

Those include the latest technology in the HR space, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, the future of work and analytics.

“According to our research, technology and digital disruption is the number one challenge that’s keeping Canadian HR leaders awake at night,” Basiri says.

As well as hearing from experts on industry best practice and the future of HR, attendees will exchange ideas during focused workshops and knowledge-sharing luncheons.

They will also have exclusive opportunities to network with industry leaders and their peers at multiple events, as well as gaining HRPA professional development credits.
