Welcome to The HR Congress Academy

“A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.”  John A. Shedd

The challenges we are facing today are entirely different than what we are “used to”, with a wholly new gravitas and scale, unprecedented in the modern history of mankind and certainly unprecedented in the world of business, comprising a more profound threat to lives as well as livelihoods and dangerously threatening companies and their many employees. Without a current or historic timetable for recovery. With unexpected changes to business models, practices, and supply chains that will redefine the relationships between companies, their employees, and their customers for a long time—in some ways, likely forever.

WHEN
18 – 19 May, 2021


New times call for new skills and competencies for HR and non-HR business leaders to navigate through these uncertain times – and bounce back stronger than before.

The HR Congress Academy – with two global editions in Spring and Autumn – is bringing you a finely curated selection of thought leader masterclasses, workshops and think-tanks so that you and your employees are not only well prepared but more importantly well equipped to deal with today’s challenges and face tomorrow with confidence – bringing you IDEAS with IMPACT.


The HR Congress Academy is structured in a way that enables participants to connect, engage, and get inspired.

Between the inspirational Big Idea keynote sessions, attendees may join a selection of elective Masterclasses to learn from some of the most thought-provoking ideas to build the modern organization.

However, just like at an in-person conference, some of the best discussions happen in an unstructured way, therefore we have included several Lounge sessions to offer an opportunity to further discuss and connect with like-minded professionals from literally around the world.

So, I hope you can join us for two amazing days on 17-18 May to Connect, Engage, and Get Inspired!
