‘Hot topics’ in HR: finding and keeping good staff & sexually transgressive behaviour (EN)

Event summary

Today’s labor market poses several challenges to employers. In this workshop, we will address two ‘hot topics’ in particular. The first is: how to attract and retain good staff? We will provide you with tips and tricks on how to stand out from other employers in this current ’employee’s market’ and discuss (upcoming) legislation to consider when hiring.

The second topic is: how to prevent sexually transgressive behaviour in the workplace and how to properly address it when it occurs? Unfortunately, more and more employers are faced with incidents or complaints of sexually transgressive behaviour. We have observed that this has a profound effect not only on the parties involved but also on all staff members. We will delve into the responsibilities employers have in ensuring a safe workplace and what measures should be in place to handle such matters in the best possible way to minimize impact.

We will discuss (a.o):

How to attract and retain good staff?

  • The modern take on the employer role: attractive employment conditions, new types of employment contracts
  • Adapting to new generations
  • Legislative proposals: recruitment and selection, equal pay and non-compete clause
  • Screening of staff

How to prevent sexually transgressive behaviour in the workplace?

  • Legal responsibilities of the employer to ensure a safe workplace
  • Procedures for sexually transgressive behaviour
  • Importance of culture and zero tolerance policy
  • How to conduct a proper investigation
  • Possible sanctions under employment law
