“The theme of the conference is "HR in the Age of Innovation: Navigating the Future of Work" with the aim of exploring all the novelties and relevant areas related to innovation in human resources management and the future of work. And the focus is on the commitments of the European Association for People Management (EAPM), which, under the motto "HR Shapes the New Future," promotes a special focus on four key topics:
The general sponsor of the event, Vrabotuvanje.com and its General Manager Darko Velkov, welcomed the attendees, emphasizing that this is a gathering of experts shaping and creating the future of work:
“This number of participants at our conference confirms just that, as this is not only a meeting place for people who "live and breathe" HR; it's also a gathering of experts who shape and create the future of work. This year's conference program is diverse and exciting. Over the next two days, you will meet fantastic speakers and experts in human resources, hear inspiring stories, and learn about the latest trends shaping our profession. This conference belongs to you, and I have no doubt that in the coming years, we will continue to write the most beautiful pages of the HR world.”
Darko Velkov also officially announced that Vrabotuvanje.com became a part of the Alma Career group that is a leader in employment in Southeast Europe, the Baltics, the Balkans, and Finland:
“Today I’m addressing you not only on behalf of the Vrabotuvanje.com but also on behalf of the Alma Career group. Our Vrabotuvanje.com officially became an equal member and part of this Finnish group from July this year, which we are especially proud of because we have fulfilled our mission and our goal - to make Vrabotuvanje a recognized European brand! Alma Career group operates in 16 countries and together we create: "A better world of work for everyone. Inspired by people. Powered by technology."
More than 200 people took part at the largest HR conference in Macedonia. Speakers from Germany, UK, Italy, Turkey, Canada, Croatia, Greece, and Macedonia shared their insights and solutions to the theme "HR in the Age of Innovation: Navigating the Future of Work." Part of the Conference was also the HR EXPO for the companies that were presenting their innovating solutions to help HR managers and recruiters in the recruitment process. But the HR work doesn’t end with recruitment, quite the contrary, after it comes the most difficult part how to keep and motivate employees, how to give them what they want in their world of work.
“Employers should ensure the satisfaction of basic needs in the workplace while also providing employees with opportunities for growth and development, recognizing their achievements, and making their jobs challenging and meaningful. In this way, employers can create a work environment that promotes motivation and job satisfaction among employees. There is no one-size-fits-all recipe that companies can apply to be successful in this regard so it’s important to collect data.
To wrap-up here are some practical steps you need to take:
Alma Career is proud to have the opportunity to support the development of the HR with Macedonian Human Resources Association (MHRA) so together we create: "A better world of work for everyone.”
