On Tuesday 13 June, NHS Employers is hosting the Workforce Summit, a one-day event which will bring together HR directors and workforce leaders from across the NHS to debate a number of topical issues. Bookings are open and we are now in a position to confirm some of the detail around our workshop sessions.
Workforce supply: time to take stock of our domestic workforce strategy?
There are longstanding workforce supply challenges facing the sector, coupled with a focus on increasing the skills of the UK based population, is it time to look at what can be done to turn the corner? This session explores moving from being reactive to proactive and how we can look at local workforce planning and development differently. The session will provide the space to discuss approaches across an STP or health economy, as well as within individual organisations.
Bending over backwards: are we flexible enough to retain staff?
Employers are seeing increasing demand for flexible working. How do we provide this and manage to meet service demands? Hear from cross-sector employers who have successfully tackled this and join the debate on how we create more flexibility in the NHS.
The 21st Century public servant
With greater integration between health and care, learn how local authorities are using research findings to engage citizens on services; recruiting staff with the right values, empowering them to be leaders and feel part of the place they serve, not just staff in an organisation.
Other programme highlights include:
- Matthew Syed an Olympian and author who will discuss safe cultures and learning from mistakes
- John Timpson, Chairman of Timpsons who will share insights on developing good employer brands
- a panel session where we explore the national workforce strategic priorities
- opportunities to network with fellow HR and workforce leaders.
This year the summit has been extended into a full one-day event taking place in the run-up to our new-look annual conference, Confed 17
which takes place on 14/15 June 2017. Find out more about the programme and book your place.
