What the Industry is saying about LEAP HR: Construction

At LEAP HR: Construction we believe the traditional conference format is not fit for purpose, so we’ve ripped it up and started from scratch. When you look inside the agenda, you will see three main types of session:

“With higher talent and customer demands than ever before, we need to think differently and redefine traditional HR practices to ensure wider business success. LEAP HR: Construction gives engineering and construction HR leaders the opportunity to share, debate and challenge these practices so that together we can tackle the critical people and business issues facing our industry..”
