Career Moves Group hosts second successful HR roundtable
The breakfast event was facilitated by guest speaker Clare McEvoy, HR Director, who has worked in a range of global organisations including Guinness World Records, Turner Broadcasting, the BBC and CNN.
Delegates discussed the importance of brand awareness during the recruitment process, the use of internal communications when managing change within an organisation, and how training and progression should be at the fore of internal HR teams rather than an afterthought.
McEvoy said, “Although our guests were from diverse sectors, there was an overlap of ideas, and we shared experiences and approaches which will hopefully spark ideas back in the workplace.
“An interesting subject was around HR development and the challenge it presents. The consensus was that you need to manage it yourself! This is not always easy, or a priority, but is necessary to broaden your role and deepen your knowledge.
“This kind of forum can be the start of a good peer network and can hopefully be used for problem solving in the future or networking with peers can be a great support, particularly for standalone roles.”
Career Moves HR Senior Account Manager Alexandra Biagioni commented, “This event was organised to allow HR professionals to come together and discuss current topics and trends in a supportive environment.
“I am delighted that it has attracted such a wide range of HR professionals who were able to benefit from some incredibly engaging discussions and I’m looking forward to hosting similar events in the near future.”
Natalie Roberts, HR manager for Turner Broadcasting, who attended the event said, “It was a fantastic morning getting to know like-minded HR professionals and it was refreshing to hear other individuals ideas, frustrations and ways of working. I always love networking opportunities to understand other organisations, different HR initiatives and the challenges they face from a HR perspective and this was a great sounding board exercise courtesy of Career Moves.”
