Event Overview

Powering Performance in the Public Sector

Public sector organizations now have an opportunity to articulate the future shape and direction of their workforces, as the new reality takes hold and workplace models adopt. Building a more secure and resilient public sector workforce to achieve improved citizenship engagement and expand operational capabilities is critical for growing Canada’s economy and positioning it for the digital era.

As the government workplace continues to evolve, HR sits in a strategic position to play a critical role in reimagining and recreating engaging work experiences for their employees. Rising citizen expectations combined with a global pandemic have also created new urgency for innovation in the HR space. Delivering a dynamic employee experience has become key in the public sector, placing HR at the center of driving organizational change and outcomes.

Attend Public Sector Network’s HR and Future of Work Showcase Roadshow to connect directly with decision-makers and influencers and help them overcome their challenges using innovative solutions to their workforce challenges. Showcase your ideas solutions to our captive live audience as Canada moves forward and workplaces continue to adapt to the new digital environment.
