InnovateWork is a community for HR, Talent and Tech professionals looking to connect and learn best practices on how to improve employee processes and workplace output.

InnovateWork Online #4 is the first to be focused on pros Down Under and is free to attend.

Our online events regularly receive over 500 registrations each and we're hoping this one will be just as popular! Please share on social media to help us reach more folks across Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere.

With over ten years of recruitment experience, Andrea brings a knowledge and passion for the global recruitment process and systems, along with an understanding of translating that into the real world working environment for recruiters, hiring managers and candidates.
