Registration and Welcome Coffee
Panel Discussion: First hand impressions and open debate with the Minister of Labor and Social Justice, big private employers and HR stars about the future of the Romanian labor environment

• Developing education systems and learning to be up-to-date with a rapidly-changing work landscape. Is the re-establishment of vocational schools an answer?
• The foreign worker quota has risen to new record figures. Does this solve the scarcity of labor in construction, hospitality or agriculture? How does it affect the local economy in the long term?
• Can we expect a migration of workers from state companies and institutions to the private sector in the current political and economic contexts?
• Should the labor market become a national priority and what we can do about it?

Panel discussion: Business Performance as a result of outstanding HR proficiency

There is a simple and straightforward explanation for why HR offices are often right next door to the CEO’s. Productive people make businesses perform well and it is the task of HR professionals to understand, recruit, train and keep employees happy and efficient, even when they have to drive organizational, structural and operational changes.

• Talent and Performance Management: the art inside HR departments
• Payroll, compensations and benefits beyond Excel books. Fostering mental and physical wellbeing takes workers and teams to unexpected performance
• The power of company culture and employer branding nowadays
• Acquiring new skills is quintessential for thriving in the future workplace. Is that an issue for the employer or the employee?
• The Mirror Question for every HR professional: “Why do you want to work for us?”. Can you answer it?
