It’s unquestionably the HR industry highlight of the year, so as thousands of HR leaders around the world prepare to flock to Paris for the 10th UNLEASH World 2022 conference on 12-13 October, we’re asking: Why visit UNLEASH World?
In short, it’s where the HR world meets. It’s the epicenter for HR, recruitment and learning professionals, and it’s home to forward-thinking pioneers of work worldwide. It’s where exciting new ideas are germinated, and in these times of disconnection it brings people together, in person, to troubleshoot, discuss, debate and learn together.

- We’ll also be running keynote sessions on the role of automation in HR, how to design a culture of reinvention and also HR 2030 – what will HR look like a few years from now?
- Gary Bolles, Chair for the Future of Work at Singularity University will be closing the conference with a thought-provoking session on growth mindset and how to truly ‘unleash’ HR, shaking off the chains of old working practices that no longer serve us, and looking ahead to an age of digital transformation and new ways of working.
