Following last year’s successful joint MMU/CIPD conference to mark CIPD’s centenary year, we are delighted to host this year’s joint conference.

At this conference will examine potential developments in People Management towards and beyond 2020. Speakers will explain the implications of Demographics and Age on the UK Labour Market moving forward.

We’ll consider how HR can impact on business ‘bottom line’ issues by looking at Engagement and Productivity. We’ll also focus on authenticity, flexibility, talent management and gaps in the psychological contract.
