Talent Summit Cork

Wednesday, 30 May 2018

| 8:00 to 12:30


Founded by Sigmar Recruitment, Talent Summit has grown to become one of the largest HR & Leadership conferences in Europe, and once again we will be coming to Cork on Wednesday, 30th May. Talent Summit Cork is a free half day event aimed at HR professionals, CEOs and hiring managers.  

The theme for the day is Accelerating Growth Through Talent and Technology. With continued economic growth, companies’ focus has switched from survival to growth. Developments in technology, demographic change and urbanisation are transforming the world of work. At the same time, talent shortages prevail. Talent is increasingly choosing the employer and not the other way around. Throughout this half day event, our distinguished contributors will address these issues and more.
