What do our employees really want (and demand) from us?

We will deal with this seemingly simple, but actually fateful question on September 20 and 21 in Rovinj, at the 11th HR Days conference. Natal Dank and Nigel Jeremy will make sure our search for answers ends successfully!

While you sit thoughtfully in the office, staring at one and the same, motionless point on the wall and twiddling your thumbs at a steady pace, which is a clear sign to your colleagues that you have entered the 'zone', you wistfully come to the conclusion that once upon a time things were simply simpler.

People would apply to the ad in large numbers, you would "comb" the resumes and select a few really good candidates and get to work. The selection processes were carried out 'as usual', and so were the conditions offered by the employers. The salary was "set in stone" and there was not much discussion about it, just like the benefits that would be on the table. However, it passed.

Today, there is no doubt about it, some other rules apply that made the former one size fits all approach an atavism in the business environment. In order to find a candidate, and especially to find one who will be a reinforcement for your team immediately after employment, you must be creative and different from your competition. First of all, you need to listen to the needs of the candidate. And that of each of them.

A better understanding of the Total Rewards approach when it comes to the compensation package we offer to employees along with the strategic role of HR in the company's operations have become necessary ingredients of every successful business story.

These are also some of the topics that will find their place at this year's HR Days conference, which will be held in Rovinj in the fall, on September 20 and 21!

We will find out more about them from world-renowned HR experts - Natal Dank and Nigel Jeremy!
