SD Worx European Conference: Driving Collaboration in the HR and Payroll Industry

SD Worx European Conference Driving Collaboration in the HR and Payroll Industry

On 6th February at Hilton Park Lane in London, we joined HR and payroll professionals from across the globe for the SD Worx European Conference 2018. With the "Future of Collaboration: HR leading the way" theme, this one-of-a-kind event played host to industry-leading experts, practitioners and organisations.

A varied speaker line up included our host for the day, journalist and broadcaster Naga Munchetty, as well as motivational speaker and Paralympic athlete Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson.

The aim for this event was for SD Worx to educate attendees around current trends including GDPR compliance; engaging a multi-generational workforce; automation and AI collaboration; cross-border operations; and challenges of UK and global payroll legislation.

Throughout the day, guests could attend several thought-provoking sessions, in addition to a panel discussing the future of collaboration in a world of evolving technology.

    Key conference topics included:

    • Taking Control of your Global Payroll
    • Leadership through Product Innovation: UK Product Update
    • The Future of Multigeneration Collaboration
    • Internationally Compliant in a Digital World
    • Back to the Future: UK Payroll Legislation Update
    • Practical Collaboration: Achieving Success

    Overall, this event focused on the importance of HR and payroll driving digitalisation and innovation in our ever-changing workplace.

    We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who joined us there – we hope you enjoyed it as thoroughly as we did, and benefited from the educational sessions, inspiring speakers and multiple networking opportunities, including the cocktail reception following our Excellence Awards - the cherry on top of an informative day!
