A 2020 Vision - The Future of People Management

On Monday 29 June 2015, Acas North West (in partnership with CIPD (Manchester), The HR Exchange, Taylors Solicitors and Manchester Metropolitan University) held its Manchester conference.

Speakers including Peter Cheese, Stephen Taylor, Cathy Brown, Emma Swan, Keith Stopforth, Pete Monaghan and Carol Atkinson examined the implications of Demographics and Age on the UK Labour Market moving forward.

We considered how HR can impact on business "bottom line" issues by looking at Engagement and Productivity and examined potential developments in People Management towards and beyond 2020.

We also focussed on authenticity, flexibility, talent management and gaps in the psychological contract.

Over 100 HR professionals, employers, people managers and trade union representatives joined us on the day to make it an informative and memorable event.
