Welcome to the 2016 NZ HR
Conference and Expo

As the premium HR Conference and Expo in New Zealand, this three day event looks to delve deeper into understanding “Our place in the World.” To save you the time of researching international HR experts, the cost of travelling around the world to listen to these experts and providing networking events to help you connect with the best human resources personnel in the New Zealand, we’ve combined them all to one event this August.

Are you ready?

We often hear, and like to think, that New Zealand ‘punches above its weight’ and in some areas, this has no doubt proven to be true. What about in our people practices at work? How do we compare with the rest of the world when it comes to creating ‘good work’ and fair, safe, productive, meaningful workplaces that people are excited and proud to be a part of and where they can achieve autonomy and personal mastery?

That is a lot to think about… If we stopped for a moment and looked at what our International colleagues are doing, will that unlock Pandora’s Box to a better way of thinking? I guess you’ll have to attend to find out.

  • "Excellent mix of speakers which made it interesting and thought provoking"
  • "The level of information was thought provoking and opened out my thinking"
  • "Excellent conference. Definitely motivational and came away with some key ideas to implement in the business"

Why attend?

Today's HR professionals need access to the best information, tools and networks. The NZ HR Conference & Expo provides all this and more.

There are some large global trends emerging and rising to prominence that are undoubtedly changing the world of work, for better or worse. Demographics, attitudes, robotisation, digitization, migration, diversity, social media, human sustainability…to what extent will these forces affect and influence HR practice and the HR profession down here in Aotearoa? What can we expect to be heading our way?
