Has global employment law kept pace with workplace evolution?

Global employers are facing a host of issues related to the changing nature of work. As employment law evolves at a different pace in each country, it can be difficult to keep abreast of the changes. Yet, keeping your organisation protected from risk is essential to retaining a competitive edge in recruiting and retaining top talent.

IBIS Academy is the longest-running international HR conference in the world and HR professionals return to IBIS Academy for practical solutions and connections that inspire better work. It offers global focus, innovative solutions and meaningful connections.

This year CMS Employment Group has the pleasure of sponsoring and helping Gallagher expand its IBIS Academy conference with an Employment Law Symposium – a one-and-a-half-day event. Find out how regulations are changing to address the gig economy, data security and more when you join us on 8-9 May 2019.

We hope to see you there!
