About PeopleFirst 2020


The current pandemic has been called the “crisis of a generation”, and has forced employers, leaders and their teams to rethink how work is organised. 


As a result, companies have accelerated the use of technology and agile frameworks by five years. HR, business leaders and managers will have to leverage HR technology to optimise new ways to help people Belong, Grow and Perform for a sustainable future.
