What does the changing economy mean for Managing People in Organisations?
Thursday 22nd January 2015
6pm registration for 6:30pm start
Catrin Finch Centre, Glyndwr University Wrexham
Ellis & Co are proud to sponsor the up and coming event organised by Glyndwr University in association with the ACCA, BIFM and CMI.
"The state of the economy has an effect on every organisation through, among other things, its impact on consumer spending, the cost of borrowing money, government budgets and how easy it is to find suitable people (and the wage they need to be paid) and every organisation needs to understand what it means for them.
The first part of this seminar will focus on the next five years and what might happen in the economy and the labour market. Economists think we are likely to see stronger growth than in the last five years but there are plenty of uncertainties, both in the UK and overseas, that could mean things turn out unexpectedly.
The second part of this seminar will then describe some of the key economic, social and technological Megatrends that are changing organisations and societies, such as globalisation, and consider some of the possible ways in which they might over the next 10-20 years change organisations, the people who run them and the people who work in them."
