Michael Page Human Resources is an active part of the HR community, and has been committed to providing a forum for HR professionals to come together with their peers and share knowledge. One of the major ways we do this is through our HR director thought leadership series, which brings together those at the top of the profession to discuss topical issues and exchange advice and knowledge. Not only do these forums enable a network of HR directors to talk to each other, but we have also captured their insights to share with other HR professionals.
In this video series, our thought leaders discuss various challenges around leadership: both their own as HR directors and in fostering good leadership within their organisations as part of their role.
