Centennials - Who Are They And What Do They Want From The Workplace?

Sinéad D’Arcy, International Graduate Programme Manager, Jameson - See My Presentation

  • Centennials, Gen Z, the iGeneration, the generation born from 2000 onwards are known by many names but who are they and how do they differ from Millennials?
  • When it comes to Gen Z the reality is we still have a lot of work to do to deepen our understanding of this generation and the impact they will have on the workplace. This session aims to discuss what we do know about this incredibly tech-savvy generation. 
  • As Gen Z blur the line between work and play they expect a lot from their career in terms of both personal and professional development. How can employers deliver on that? 

Sinéad leads the Jameson International Graduate Programme as Programme Manager. As an experienced HR training & development professional Sinéad has a passion for the attraction, selection, development & retention of graduate talent. Her role includes recruitment of best fit graduate talent, design of the programmes award winning programmes training & development offering & the development, implementation & evaluation of the graduate management framework for a global network of 75 Brand Ambassadors based across 42 international markets.

Trump, Brexit And All That

Bill Boorman, Founder, #tru - See my Presentation

  • Despite the title, this session is not a political commentary, or intended to be one of those "5 things recruiters can learn from Trump" type talks. 
  • This is a lightening look at the way people are communicating, connecting and making big decisions, and the part digital communication and data plays in this.
  • You can expect a few surprises and a hint or two of controversy. Hold on to your hats.

Bill will share in his own inimitable style, will share his controversial opinion on where recruitment is heading, and what you need to look out for! Hat wearing founder of #Tru. Social recruiting product advice. Social recruiting integration. Social referral programs, Blogger. Keynote speaker.

Innovation Spotlights

Using technology to deliver seamless employee experiences

ROWE killed the 9-5

Stevie Buckley, Head of Talent, Technology, StreetTeam - See my presentation

  • A brief history of ROWE,
  • The how & why it just works
  • What the 'office' environment will look like in 20 years

Stevie has been called a lot of things over the years from “a veteran of the London tech scene” to “the most endorsed person on LinkedIn for Cat Herding”. If you ask him, Stevie will tell you that he uses his experience as a former developer to help companies attract, hire and retain great people. By day he’s Head of Talent at StreetTeam, by night he runs and hosts Europes largest tech meet-up group. Stevie is an extremely vocal advocate for treating candidates like actual people rather than human resources and spends far too much time on twitter ranting about agency recruiters.
