HR responsibilities

just got bigger

– let’s talk!

Previous panellists are back together with the addition of Richard Evans from McDonald’s to discuss the role of the HR professional post BREXIT.

How can HR professionals help to manage the inevitable change BREXIT has already brought and will continue to bring?

Adding to this, as the US elections are about to complete, what will be the global impact of whoever is in office?
