Rethink | Reboot | Retool HR

This keynote offers you an original performing and sustainable framework to explore what is expected and needed from HR today and tomorrow.   

More detailed information

The future of work is no longer a buzzword. It’s abundantly clear the way we work is changing and will continue to change. 

#ZigZagHR is not a plea for tabula rasa. It paints a picture to organizations, employers and HR that communicates traditional HR is no longer sufficient and must evolve with an extra dimension to become ‘progressive HR’. 

This keynote presents the #ZigZagHR model in which different ideas and insights around workers, careers, competencies and HR operations are connected.  

Spoiler alert: Lesley will give you three key messages the audience will definitely take away:  

(1) It’s a great time to be in HR 

(2) #ZigZagging is key for professionals, organizations and HR 

(3) We need to get out! Get out of our comfort zone, get out of the silo, get out of the building and get out of our bubble.

Lesley is convinced that "zigzagging" is key for professionals, organizations and HR in order to thrive in today’s and tomorrow’s world of work. It al started in 2018 when she wrote "#ZigZagHR, why the best HR is no longer HR" together with professor Lisbeth Claus. The book brought into being an online community of HR professionals, entrepreneurs and business leaders that was eager for more. Since 2019 Lesley started gathering them by organizing "Connect & Learn" events where she shares best & next practices from progressive HR teams in Belgium. Not afraid to undertake new initiatives, Lesley launched a brand new HR magazine "#ZigZagHR: Rethink | Reboot |Retool HR".
