400 people, heads of HR and companies from all over the Czech Republic and Slovakia, will arrive in Ostrava on 13th October for the 5th edition of the renowned event called ’HRko 2022‘. This year, the HR Party & Festival of HR Solutions will take place in the brand new premises of Poklad Culture Centre in Ostrava-Poruba. This change has allowed the programme to be extended. The varied line-up can now fit into six stages, while last year‘s event was held on two stages.
For the first time ever, representatives from the top management of traditional Czech and multinational companies will appear on stage. For example, Tomáš Vala from SIKO, Jan Fišer from Nestlé Czech Republic - Zora Olomouc plant, Jana Vychroňová from Vodafone, Martin Svoboda from Astratex, Tomáš Ervín Dombrovský from LMC and Martin Cígler as the head of Solitea Group, will present their projects in the field of people management and HR. The audience will gain a completely new perspective of the industry in which they operate in.
How the highest levels of management view the area of people development in companies and what demands they have on HR is one of the big topics of this year’s conference.
Tomáš Vala joined the family business SIKO at the age of 17. He has dedicated most of his life to the company and is famous for his extraordinary approach to colleagues and unconventional methods of engagement.
Jan Fišer from Nestlé Czech Republic gained his work experience around the world in the performance acceleration team and is one of the key leaders within Central Europe. He focuses on employee education, optimisation and automation of production lines, while emphasizing quality, hygiene and safety.
Part-time jobs for (almost) all positions? Still a new concept in the Czech workforce environment. This is exactly what Jana Vychroňová focuses on. In Ostrava, she will present how this concept has been applied at Vodafone. After more than a year of project implementation, concrete data and experience will already be available, so you have something to look forward to.
Martin Svoboda from Astratex will share an interesting story about the arrival of new management to a local company, the move of the company to Prague and the change of company culture and management.
The expert on the main phenomena and trends in the interconnected worlds of education and work is Tomáš Ervín Dombrovský, who has been working at LMC for eleven years. He will be speaking at the start of HRK to give a clear view of the trends for 2022/2023.
Martin Cígler is co-owner of the Solitea Group with a turnover of CZK 2.5 billion, which includes leading players in the Czech and foreign markets in the field of ERP and economic systems.
How to unite teams and corporate cultures of diverse companies across Europe? This is the task of Martin Cígler, who will bring a case study on this very topic to HRko 2022.
And who will take over for Roman Vojtek as the host? None other than Pavel Cejnar from Evropa 2, who will also take care of the entertainment at the opening ceremony and party. This year’s HRko looks like it’s going to be quite a ride. The full line-up can be found on hrko.cz.
