From 10:00 to 10:45 a.m., by MindForest - The HR department is not a key player in change management

Logo mindforest site 400 x 200

Location: Salle d'écoute (Ground floor)

Conference language: France 1524418 640French


Conference summary:

 

Change Management is often described as a challenge for the HR department comprising an integral part of their ability to manage human capital, after all the success of a change project largely depends on human factors (for example related to behaviour, beliefs or values…).

 

But does HR really have the legitimacy to claim to be a key player in the field of change management and can they really meet this type of challenge? 

MindForest, a consultancy with 20 years of experience and specialisation in change management, will explain its approach to this subject in the opening presentation at the forthcoming HR Lux Trade Fair.

From 01:00 to 01:45 p.m., by Luther - What should employers bear in mind and avoid when terminating an employment contract?

Logo luther pour site 1

Location: Workshop 1 room (First floor)

Conference language: France 1524418 640French


Conference summary:

Quite often employers precipitously decide to terminate an employment contract that, consequently, triggers irregularities both in terms of substance and form.

Prior to dismissing an employee, the employer should clearly analyze the specific situation at hand and reply to the following questions:

Is the employee protected by a specific situation or status, such as work incapacity or being a staff representative? Is he still undergoing a trial period? Should a preliminary interview take place before dismissal?

This presentation will analyze the answers to these questions to help employers minimize legal risks when terminating an employment contract. It will solely focus on individual dismissal.

 

As employment law is perceived as a technical subject, whose rules are sometimes misunderstood or not applied well, we would like to share with our workshop attendees practical cases and, thus, hand down to them key legal tips to secure a contract termination.

Profitable (and Happy!) Expatriates

Avoiding pitfalls in international assignments through specific Expatriate Coaching Programs

 

Conference summary:

Has your company ever experienced a failed expatriation? Did you calculate the financial, professional and strategic impact for the organization? 

In this conference, we will analyse the deep impacts of an expatriation for the Professional and his/her families, and why (if not correctly managed) can hurdle the expected returns for the company.

Did you know that applying  specific Expatriate Coaching Programs  to professionals in international assignments it's possible:

  • Generate positive effects for the company by getting the professional integrated in the new organization in a much faster way
  • Increase the productivity of the expatriate professional
  • Guarantee a successful Expatriation by preparing the professional and the family for the new Destination
  • And more importantly, minimize the risk of an early return of the expatriate to his/her country.


Through a deep coaching process, and according to the orientations of the company, the professional and his/ her family are walked through, from getting prepared before leaving the country of origin until the arrival and adaptation in the country of destination.

Logo brucher pour site

Location: Workshop 1 room (First floor)

Conference language: France 1524418 640French


Conference summary:

In an intense competitive environment, human capital management becomes an essential factor in the value of a company.

Taking into account the well-being at work of employees aims to develop in the company a conception of efficiency and performance that is concerned with the health of employees and promotes their motivation and involvement in the work.

The implementation of a well-being policy can thus contribute to the professional development of employees, but also to improving the working environment within teams and strengthening the climate of respect and listening. 

 

In this context, many legal tools are available to create an environment where it is good to work:

  • Benefits in kind ; 
  • Implementation of conflict prevention procedures;
  • Flexibility and teleworking....
