2017 - Meeting tomorrow's challenges today

23 November 2017



The ECC Annual Conference 2017: Meeting tomorrow’s challenges today was held on 23 November.

Attended by over 50 delegates from 35 member organisations across the UK plus representatives of partner organisations, the conference focused on major areas of change, understanding how they will impact our sector. Our keynote speakers shared insights to help HR professionals tackle those challenges, and we ran three practical workshops exploring key issues:

  • Talent and recruitment in a post-Brexit world

  • Role analysis and the gender pay gap

  • Reward strategy issues and options

All the speakers’ presentations are available below.

We have uploaded short video interviews with conference speakers below, so you can hear the key points first hand.
