Gain insights, share expertise and be part of discussions around HR issues within the region.

Join Business South for a half-day interactive conference where HR representatives and business leaders from across the region come together to gain insights, share expertise and explore discussions to understand and improve HR issues within the region.

There has never been a more challenging time for employers. Issues such as attracting and retaining sufficient talent are a major priority for most businesses in the South, with HR and hiring managers looking at innovative and effective strategies for attracting and retaining quality candidates. Businesses are also looking to take initiative into issues such as management and leadership, supporting mental health in the workplace and how to stand out from the crowd as an ethical employer.
