Why Register for The HR Congress Live Stream?

Whilst we love seeing as many people at our events as possible, we know it’s not always feasible to attend them in person. Whether it’s because of time, travel, or budget restrictions – or simply just a bit of bad luck, attending an event can seem like a luxury for many hard-working people.

This is why we’re very happy to announce that we will be streaming live from The HR Congress 2019, taking place at The Acropolis in the beautiful riviera city of Nice, France for free!

We don’t want you to miss out on a fantastic selection of sessions, great ideas, and inspiring stories from some of the best minds in HR. So get comfortable wherever you are, and join The HR Congress Live Stream – let’s build the future of organizations and work together.
