On Thursday 21st November 2019, our team in Amsterdam hosted a round table event at the Conservatorium Hotel around Digitalisation in HR.
It was an absolute pleasure having Christophe Vanden Eede as our keynote speaker. We are convinced that technology has the potential to transform HR by empowering the function to offer highly customized talent practices that optimize each employee’s performance.
The event was a fantastic opportunity to explore the cutting edge progress within the digital world and how this has influenced HR. Christophe has a wealth of experience in the matter and coordinated a lively discussion.
