“Must Attend” London HR Events In 2017

From Brexit to the progression of AI and rise of people analytics, 2017 certainly will be a huge year for the HR world.

Will British firms be forced to get visas for European workers? Will algorithms eventually replace recruiters as ultimate judgers of people? Will LinkedIn start being a relevant recruitment tool for generation Z? Will there ever be a boy born who can swim faster than a shark?

We can’t guarantee these events will answer any of these questions, but we can guarantee rooms full of great people to discuss them further with. So here we go:
