While organisations often task the HR team with the learning and development initiatives for their employees, the best leaders remember that their HR teams need looking after, too. The landscape of Human Resources and People Operations is undergoing so much change that it can be difficult to keep up with all the newest solutions, methodologies and industry knowledge circulating out there. That’s why it’s a good idea to start looking out for next year’s HR events now, and build a timeline of educational and networking opportunities to keep yourselves up to date.
