The largest conference on leadership and employee development in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the DRIVE Leadership & Talent Conference, took place on October 4th at the Hills Hotel in Sarajevo. As one of the most important events contributing to positive changes in the labor market in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the eleventh DRIVE conference hosted many leading international, regional, and domestic experts in the fields of human resources development, leadership, and experts in artificial intelligence.
The conference was organized by Alma Career’s leading job board in Bosnia and Herzegovina - MojPosao.ba, under the conference slogan "Humans after all". Important topics were explored, such as advanced leadership, new work models, and innovative approaches to talent attraction and retention. HR professionals and leaders had an excellent opportunity to explore the latest trends and strategies in human resource management.
Given the rapid evolution of the world of work, driven by technological advances, including artificial intelligence and automation, the conference aimed to address questions about the future of work. Will it belong to humans or artificial intelligence? How to attract, retain, and manage talent in today's dynamic job market?
Introducing Alma Career
Apart from the surprise factor marked by the presence of artificial intelligence, the conference was officially opened by Mersiha Mima Mehić, the CEO of the company Kolektiv/MojPosao.ba, in front of more than 300 participants. She spoked on behalf of the Alma Career Group, explaining that Alma Career operates in 16 countries and is a leader in employment in Southeast Europe, the Baltics, the Balkans, and Finland. She emphasized our special mission: "A better world of work for everyone. Inspired by people. Powered by technology," and introduced the new website: www.almacareer.com. As part of the Alma Career family, she assured clients that we will continue to be their best partner in finding and hiring the right candidates.
Mima also highlighted that today's job market demands pushing boundaries continually and emphasized the importance of innovation and technology. "Your participation in the Drive conference confirms that we are not just a meeting place for people who live HR, but who design the future of work. Thank you for being a part of this conference for over a decade. Your trust is our DRIVE".
The conference featured outstanding speakers who generously shared their rich experience and knowledge with conference participants. They included:
Three expert workshops and a panel discussion on "How to create and apply practices that align work and family" were held in collaboration with the United Nations Population Fund.
Best HR practices in Bosnia & Herzegovina
The highlight of the conference was the selection of the best HR practices. The competition for the Best HR Practices, powered by the Agency MojPosao.ba Recruitment Solutions, represents recognition of dedicated and systematic work, teams, and individuals in companies and organizations who excel in managing human potential.
This year, the five finalist projects were presented by companies with the following projects: GS Tvornica Mašina Travnik - "Matrix - Reward and Advancement System," Sarajevski kiseljak - "WoW! (Well of Wisdom) Academy, Internal Academy of the Beverage Group," Atlantic Argeta d.o.o. Sarajevo - "Values Day 2022," Fortenova Group - "DRIVE Beyond Excellence," and Imaco Systemtechnik doo - "Together," which won first place as the best HR practice this year.
The conference concluded with an answer to the key question: "Who does the future of work belong to?" We agreed that the future of work belongs to those who know how to make the best of both worlds, where technology serves people to create a better future together.
We're excited to welcome you back in October 2024.
