The Human Resources sector has been more than capable of not just adapting, but of being one step ahead with respect to the changes in the world of work. 2022 will again be another year of change, in which all sectors will have to adapt to this new reality. This year, more than ever, professionals in the sector are going to need events of different types, in which they can share experiences and ideas for the future. The adaptation to this new reality will be, without a doubt, the common thread of many of these HR events and conferences in Spain. One of the key developments in the HR sector in 2022 is that it has become a candidate-driven market; people are starting to value job opportunities that give them more flexibility and work-life balance, rather than higher pay. Organisations need to provide a positive experience for candidates, and what they are valuing most is the ability to have hybrid work, which has become very important to employees. Here is some information about the most important HR events taking place in 2022.
