The event, led by Carolyn Bogush, people and talent director at Bowmark, and Anne Sheedy, Bowmark’s ESG consultant, delved into topics such HR leadership, diversity and inclusion, and remote employee wellbeing.

Some of the takeaways included:

  • A unified vision: successful organisations have a single, cohesive people development philosophy which underpins all their HR initiatives, spanning retention, engagement, recruitment and business culture.
  • The importance of collaboration: effective engagement with line managers is critical to the development of key HR initiatives – for example, co-creating competency frameworks with the teams who use them to increase clarity and align objectives.
  • Leadership drives success: the success of any new HR initiative is predicated on effective senior management support, which in turn requires a clear analysis and communication of the risks, potential benefits and commercial drivers of the project, reporting directly to the board.

Carolyn Bogush, people and talent director at Bowmark said: “It was fantastic to see our HR leaders connect in person. With similar business models but diverse experiences, they shared their unique insights, better equipping them to tackle some of the HR challenges that are common to all rapidly growing businesses.”
