As the northern hemisphere summer begins to kick into gear, there are a huge number of competing reasons why you should not be cooped up in the office! But if you are like me, and tend to spend a lot of time catching up with the latest news, ideas, and debates, there’s always something more to digest (even on your mobile at the beach – which is another conversation entirely). Anyway, to start with, here’s a quick update on what’s new for The HR Congress Brussels. We hope you have been enjoying the latest content featured on the blog – and are happy to say that there’s much more coming over the summer months to keep you busy!
