1st Joint Academy and HR Assembly: Going Mobile

This year, our Academy and Human Resources assemblies will be combined into one event. This is an exciting opportunity to leverage our expertise in both Human Resources (HR) and Learning and Development (L&D) so that you get the most time and cost-efficient experience from the EBU. As usual we will be exploring challenges that public service media organisations face in acquiring talent and developing skills, with a special focus this year on going mobile.

We invite senior executives from EBU Members' HR and L&D departments to join us for our annual assembly. Delegates will have the opportunity to network and exchange best practice, tools, solutions and new ideas. A detailed agenda will be available soon.

Going mobile

The 2018 EBU Academy and HR Assembly, moderated by Jan Wifstrand, will explore how deeply the mobile shift has permeated society - how it affects what content we produce and the way we work. 

Going mobile has a lot of implications for HR and L&D. It presents great opportunities for attracting young and digitally savvy candidates, for assessing the level of digital skills of staff, and for supporting the workforce with mobile applications which allows more flexible work arrangements. It also entails helping staff disconnect from the job in a 24-hour connected world while using data collected through applications for predictive analytics.
