Day Event: Human Resource Related Topics in the Commodity Industry - November 7, 2018


The Zug Commodity Association (ZCA) is pleased to inform you about the successful continuation of our yearly event related to Human Resource questions in the commodity sector starting at 10.30 in the morning until 17:00 (Grafenauweg 10, Zug).

This day is especially designed for Human Resources (HR) professionals. Although it is organized and hosted by the ZCA, the event is not exclusively open to only commodity sector companies: we are kindly inviting HR professionals or their representatives from other business sectors to participate.

Our speakers are experts in their fields. They will be sharing the news and resources on human rights due diligence, labor law, recruitment, vocational education and training of apprentices, productivity enhancement in digital age and a comprehensive study on missing factors in leadership selection and development. The day offers opportunity for networking and exchanging ideas.
