- PRESS RELEASE
Great Place to Work Institute UAE, part of a global research, training and consultancy firm that recognizes the best workplaces in over 45 countries worldwide, announced its inaugural Leadership Innovation Conference.
According to research by the global institute, which has been benchmarking the UAE's top employers since 2010, UAE business leaders at all levels are facing significant challenges when trying to find leadership practices that are effective and sustainable, and that ultimately drive employee trust.
The Leadership Innovation Conference has been designed to help middle to senior managers understand best practices in developing and inspiring others to reach their full potential. Based on the theme Innovation and Collaboration for a Winning Workplace, the one-day conference will feature interactive seminars led by alumni of the Institute's Top Companies program as well as leadership experts from around the region.
"Our regional research shows that HR professionals are facing shrinking budgets and resources yet remain under pressure to improve employees' workplace experience, enhance their employer's reputation as a company of choice and to show a return on their human capital investments," said David Robert, CEO of Great Place to Work Gulf.
"To tackle those challenges alone would simply be overwhelming. Our Leadership Innovation Conference allows HR professionals and business decision makers to come together, learn from leadership practices that have proven success in the region and ultimately help people to become better leaders," Robert added.
Among the speakers confirmed to present at the conference are previous Top UAE Companies Microsoft Gulf, who will discuss how to lead the millennial generation, and THE One, who will deliver an inspiring keynote address about how its corporate social responsibility program has helped create its great workplace.
Joining them will be leading corporate strategy and training firm biz-group who will present its Multipliers leadership workshop; and consulting practice InnoVative HR Solutions who will show how to use psychometric testing in the workplace.
Great Place to Work Institute will also launch a preview of its renowned Journey Training, a development program for frontline managers that will help them to implement tactics proven to drive trust in the workplace.
The Leadership Innovation Conference will kick off a year of industry events from GPTW UAE designed to provide business leaders inspiration and ideas on how to build sustainable competitive advantage alongside high-trust workplace cultures.
The Leadership Innovation Conference, supported by sponsors Biz-group, Omnicom Media Group, FedEx Express, Dulsco, DHL and Marriott, will take place from 11:30am to 4:30pm on Tuesday, 5th February, 2013 at the H Hotel in Dubai.
