What will that mean for your organisation and your strategy?

This free event, via Zoom, is a must attend for leaders, HR, managers and industrial/labor relations practitioners

The Industrial and Labor Relations Guru – IR Guru – is delighted to host this live event.

There isn’t much that Nick Dalton hasn’t seen or done when it comes to Human Resources and Industrial/Labor Relations, having spent 30+ years in global roles at Unilever. His 2019 book “Change the Workplace, Change the World” (Routledge) is a must read.

The book describes the “Seven Great Waves” of people management. Starting from ‘Paternalism’ at the dawn of the industrial revolution, moving through the waves of ‘Power, Process, Profit, Purpose, Paradox and Planet’ and explains how each wave impacted business. It explains how some companies are stuck in the past and how HR can break the deadlock if it understands what the future holds.

During Nick’s career with Unilever, he covered all areas of H.R. ranging from introducing new HR Information systems, designing new reward systems for sales forces, working with marketing teams to speed up innovation times, through to setting up new Companies and troubleshooting industrial relations ‘crisis’ across the globe.

Stefan Stern will be interviewing Nick about his book for 30-40 mins, followed by a Q&A session where attendees will be given the chance to ask Nick questions relating to his book or anything else relating to his career and experience.

This is a brilliant session for anyone with an interest in Human Resources, Management, Leadership and Industrial/Labor Relations. Can you afford to miss it?
