Nowadays it seems as if there is an HR event nearly every week. As Indian poet Avijeet Das once said, “We don’t meet anyone by chance,” and 2018 is full of opportunities for HR professionals to meet new people, create new bonds, and learn the trends and best practices you need to be successful.
To help you sort through the noise we’ve put together a list of the top ten HR events to attend in Europe this year.
Unleash (Formerly HR Tech World)
Unleash will organize two events in Europe in 2018: London on March 20 & 21, and Amsterdam on October 23 & 24. This is probably the largest global community on the future of work (but beware, We the Talent is coming), has amazing keynote speakers like Arianna Huffington and Richard Brandson, and is the perfect event for looking at how technology and best practices can help everyone reach their full potential.
Our favorite recruitment and sourcing event is featuring a small European tour this year (watch out Bruce Springsteen): Munich on April 25 & 26, London on June 20 & 21 and Amsterdam on October 10 – 12. The speakers give presentations that is equally interesting and practical, and the hackathons show you ways to find candidates that are truly unique. A must attend event for anyone with a passion for recruiting.
After a successful 2017 edition in Paris with 1000+ HR pros, Club Talentsoft is taking the show to Amsterdam in 2018! The software provider’s event (shameless plug, Talentsoft is this blog’s mom) will take place at the Beurs Van Berlage conference hall. The former trading center will foster exchanges among top HR leaders about the employee experience.
The 2018 Employee Engagement Summit
On May 4 in London, a diverse set of keynote speakers, academics, civil servants, HR professionals, European Commission workers, entrepreneurs, and more will join forces to discuss how to improve employee engagement. The famous Isaac Getz, inventor of the “Liberated company,” will be leading the charge.
One of Germany’s largest HR events is set to be better than ever this year. As usual, let’s all meet up in Koln, on September 11, 12 & 13. September can be a busy time of year, but there’s no excuse for missing out on this one.
Rethink! HR Tech Europe
Germany will be hosting another great event: Rethink! HR Tech Europe 2018 in Berlin on November 21-23. You will be able to meet with 150+ HR decision-makers to reflect on current and future challenges.
HR 360 European Summit
Austria won’t be sitting out of the event game this year. At HR 360 you will find some of the Europe’s biggest HR experts from companies such as Deutsche Telekom, Nokia, ING, and Statoil. This event is specifically geared towards international leaders. Mark your calendar for June 28 & 29!
HRD Summit Europe
On May 22 & 23, 300+ HR leaders will gather in Amsterdam. If this year’s speakers are as good as the ones from last year, it is going to be great!
HR Conference Barcelona
On October 5, Spains rapidly growing tech city will be hosting the fifth edition of this event. 15 well regarded keynote speakers will be there to show you how to tackle all your HR challenges.
CWS Summit & Collaboration in the gig economy
On April 24-25 kill two birds with one stone in London at the CWS Summit and Collaboration in the Gig Economy conferences. The gig economy is going to play a bigger role than ever in HR processes, and this conference will help you know how to tackle it.
