Rita Trehan, business transformation specialist and chief capacity officer at Rita Trehan LLC, played a leading role at Onrec 2015, the Online Recruitment Conference & Exhibition in London on Tuesday 20 October 2015.
Rita was a part of the discussion panel, a late afternoon session where she gave her take on the topics raised during the day. Building on her extensive experience as a global HR leader at Honeywell and The AES Corporation, where she led change management initiatives in more than 30 countries, she is now helping companies navigate the changes of the workplace and its impact on people. Rita’s varying and vast expertise provided a fascinating insight into the conference.
Onrec examined how the UK recruitment industry is responding to a changing economy. Specialists in employer branding, recruitment advertising, talent spotting and social media were just a few of the event’s 12 expert speakers and panellists.
The discussion panel was chaired by Matt Alder, digital strategist, technologist, consultant, HR and recruitment marketing expert at Metashift. Rita was also joined by Mark Kieve, chief executive at The Internet Corporation Ltd and Eunice Clements-Tweedie, head of talent resourcing at Kerry Foods.
Onrec attracted global HR directors and managers, inhouse recruiters, brand managers and the recruitment profession who were all eager to get up to speed on the latest trends and thinking in online recruitment. Professionals have previously attending from Shell, Deloitte, the Guardian, the BBC, Specsavers, Arsenal Football Club, Barclays and Ford Motor Company.
