Redesigning the employee value proposition, social media’s role in engaging talent, the datafication of HR and all benefits professional need to know about the latest benefits tax changes will be covered by four keynote sessions at Employee Benefits Live 2014
The first day of the conference, on 24 September, will begin with a presentation by Fredrik Tukk, head of communication, marketing and branding at Maersk, about redesigning the employee value proposition.
Later that day, John Whiting, tax director at the Office of Tax Simplification, will lead a must-attend closing keynote session on benefits tax changes, including what the government is currently working on and what consultations are about to begin.
He said: “It will be a mix of alerting [delegates] to changes that are happening, but I’d also like them to give us more evidence on a new report on employment status that we’ll be running for the rest of the year.”
The keynote session on 25 September, entitled ‘Social media to engage top talent’, will be led by Mervyn Dinnen, a blogger and content and social engagement strategist.
“I want to provide an overview of social media: how it has grown, and how it fits in with talent attraction and retention,” said Dinnen.
“What I really want to spell out is that it’s not just a Millennial thing. It’s the way employers communicate with their customers, it’s the way they communicate with collaborators, and it’s the way their employees want to interact with them.”
The final day will conclude with a session on the datafication of HR by Jon Ingham, author of Strategic Human Capital Management – Creating Value Through People.
Employee Benefits Live will take place at Olympia National in London on 24 and 25 September 2014.
