HR by the Sea
Never mind seagulls, you were more likely to have your chips stolen by an events industry HR Director this month along Brighton seafront.
Diversified Communications were kind enough to host the Event Industry HR Group at their office in Brighton on Wednesday 13th September. This was the second meeting since tfconnect, AEO, AEV and ESSA merged HR working groups earlier this year.
Chaired by tfconnect’s MD, Trevor Foley, the full-day meeting was hugely enjoyable and, we’re told, extremely useful for those that could take the time out of their busy schedules to join us.
The burning issues discussed included catering staff zero-hours contracts, guidelines for employing temporary staff, competency frameworks and event team staffing and we’ve come away from the event loaded with discussion topics to tackle before the next edition.
Thanks also to our presentations from The Event Academy and from Realise – both of which are organisations dedicated to creating better pathways from education into events businesses via training and apprenticeship schemes respectively.
The next Events Industry HR Group will take place at the QEII Centre, London on Wesnesday 21st February 2018.
