After a 2020 edition organised in a digital format, a new edition of Human Capital Europe will take place next November 16th, in a physical format*, at the European Convention Center Luxembourg (ECCL). Organised by HR One and powered by Farvest, Human Capital Europe will give the participants a unique opportunity to attend a 1-day conference discussing the latest HR and management trends, connect with local and international HR key players, visit an exhibition area, and share great moments of networking. The traditional HR One Gala dinner -hosting the Luxembourg HR Awards ceremony- will then close this awaited 1-day event.

From 9:00am to 06:00pm the main stage of Human Capital Europe will welcome -on-site- inspiring leaders that will be focusing on two main topics throughout the day. The morning conference will be dedicated to the topic “From ordinary people to extraordinary leaders”. CEOs and leadership experts will take the stage to share their inspiring journey and best practices. Among them, Niccolo Polli (CEO, HSBC), Aline Muller (CEO, LISER) and Gaspar Kocsis (COO, F4All) will attempt to answer “How to manage in 2022: the role(s) of modern leaders”. Then, the participants will be able to discover an out of the box management vision, with the participation of Paul Douard (Editor-in-Chief, VICE) presenting “How anti-ambition will save you”. This morning session will also be the opportunity to discover the author of “Career Fear – how to beat it” – Somi Arian, author and entrepreneur – who will be sharing a practical roadmap for business owners and company leaders to survive and thrive in possibly the most challenging economic conditions in modern history.

The afternoon conference will be focusing on “The HR year”. Human Resources Directors and HR experts from all types of industries will take the stage to share their priorities with the audience for the years to come.

In addition to the main stage conferences, POST Luxembourg will be organising, in parallel, its IOT Event “Let's make flexibility your new super power!”. POST Luxembourg chose Human Capital Europe to hold its flagship event dedicated to HR business leaders and professionals by exploring how the IoT (internet of things) offers opportunities for greater flexibility in the workplace. The telecom company will be offering a number of specific testimonials of customer use cases as part of a session where every participant will have a chance to share their feedback and insights into the place of flexibility in the world of work, health care and industry. A webinar, accessible from the conference hall, and organised by Performanse will also be hosted. Via a webinar focusing on “The era of soft skills: which? Why? How?”, participants will be able to discover a complete vision of the main issues that soft skills pose to HR leaders.
