At this upcoming event, we will be sharing PwC's insights into the changing workforce and working with millennials; the moving market and the megatrends that are likely to impact us most; technology advancements and their implications on our people; and the future of the workplace.

With so many CEOs concerned about the availability of key skills, and others intent on increasing their headcount, it is more important than ever to be focusing on attracting – and keeping – top talent and developing our people.
