Megatrends Conference 2014

Acas North West / CIPD (Manchester) Conference was held in March 2014. The theme was the recently published CIPD report "Megatrends" which considers some of the key aspects shaping our economies and the world of work. The author of the report, Mark Beatson, along with a list of high profile speakers, developed these themes further during the day.

This Conference provided a much needed opportunity for delegates to reflect generally about the key trends impacting on the world of work in forthcoming years and gave them information to use and develop into long term people management strategies. HR professionals, employers, people managers and trade union representatives joined us on the day to make it an informative and memorable event.

The day highlighted the need to not only plan for the future, but to train managers, team leaders, staff and TU / employee representatives to identify, manage, communicate and, most importantly, collaborate with staff at times of change.
