We’ve not had a presidential visit for more than two years in London and we were very pleased that Stephen Moir was able to join the region on Friday 27th June, to speak to us about his recent conference theme of HR evolution or extinction. In choosing this title, Stephen revealed his secret boyhood love of dinosaurs and his yearning to be a palaeontologist…
In a really engaging way Stephen tackled some of the significant issues for public sector HR:
- Selling ourselves as HR professionals better
- Celebrating success
- Working smarter – being more strategic
- Total rewards, rather than just pay
- Linking contribution and rewards better
- Tackling inequality
Our regional members got a chance to ask any and many questions of Stephen and the ‘up close and personal’ approach worked very well.
Rave comments afterwards included, “That was inspirational”, “…best session we’ve had as a region”,”…a very clear vision for public sector HR”.
Big thanks to Stephen. Also big thanks to LGA for so kindly hosting us at their Smith Square offices. So…other regions, if you haven’t booked him up yet, grab that phone or bash out an email…you’ll enjoy the result!
