LITTLER, THE WORLD’S LEADING EMPLOYMENT LAW FIRM FOR EMPLOYERS, ANNOUNCES INAUGURAL EUROPEAN EMPLOYER CONFERENCE IN LONDON IN NOVEMBER 2019
Senior HR and legal speakers from Accenture, Uber and Oracle will discuss “The Changing Face of the Workplace”
Littler, the world’s largest employment and labour law practice representing employers, today announced its inaugural Littler European Employer conference, to be held in London on 14 November 2019. Featuring speakers from Accenture, Uber and Oracle, the event will focus on “The Changing Face of the Workplace” in Europe and beyond.
The one-day conference is designed for senior HR and in-house legal professionals and builds on the tradition of Littler’s annual conference in the United States, The Executive Employer®, which is now in its 36th year and is considered one of the leading employment and labour law conferences.
The Littler European Employer conference will reflect the concerns expressed by respondents in Littler’s first Executive Employer Survey of Europe, which found that diversity, the gig economy and digitalisation were the biggest concerns for employers. For example, 80% of survey respondents reported having taken action to address the gender pay gap in 2018.
The conference programme will feature a range of keynote presentations, interactive groups and panel discussions, including:
Speakers will include HR and in-house legal professionals from across Europe and the US, as well as Littler lawyers from its 13 European offices and its offices in the US. The conference will conclude with a reception overlooking the River Thames.
“We are very excited to launch our inaugural European conference, which promises to deliver informative and engaging content and an impressive line-up of speakers,” said Stephan Swinkels, who is co-leading Littler’s global practice. “This event is designed to equip senior executives from across Europe and beyond with the knowledge and guidance needed to prepare their organisations for tomorrow’s challenges in the face of a changing workplace and to help position them for future success.”
