The 2019 World Employment Conference

In 2019 RCSA & WEC welcome the world.

For the first time in its 51 year history the World Employment Confederation will hold its annual conference in Australia in conjunction with the RCSA International Conference. The combined event will see the world’s thought leaders in the recruitment, staffing and workforce solutions space converge on the Sheraton Mirage Resort on the Gold Coast from the 30 October to the 1 November to explore Leadership in a New World of Work.

Every day the world is getting smaller. As rapid advancements in technology and connectivity bring us closer together, new opportunities and challenges arise yet, despite increases in automation, the rise of AI, and digital innovation changing our industry almost daily we believe, more than ever, that the future is human. The new world of work will be defined by how our individuality, our professional integrity, and our creative spirit intersects with technology but, more importantly, how we inspire people and create opportunity.

The 2019 International Conference will explore the role our industry will play in improving lives, communities, and economies through connecting individuals with meaniningful work into the future. Through bringing us together to reflect as individuals, and as a collective, this year’s conference will explore how we can empower, how we will collaborate, and how we can build trust in a new world of work. Our collective leadership will be more important than ever before and you can shape it at the World Employment Conference 2019.
