Event will start in


Introduction to the forum

After feedback from our clients asking for a quality HR event in Brisbane, FCB Group embarked on the inaugural FCB HR Forum in 2018: Cultivating Positivity in the Workplace. The success of 2018’s event have us back for more, this time exploring what it takes for businesses to become an ‘Employer of Choice’.

The type of business model and workplace culture that leads to recognition and awards as an Employer of Choice has proven benefits that far outweigh the cost of creating such a culture: a more flexible and agile business where employees are more productive and loyal, where the best workers want to stay, and top talent wants to work – a positive workplace, free from the kinds of HR issues that damage brands and cause claims.

The 2019, FCB HR Forum, How to Become an Employer of Choice, is open to senior HR leaders, managers, aspiring managers, operations executives and business owners who understand the tremendous benefits that come from implementing best-practice HR management to create the kind of workplaces that win ‘Employer of Choice’ awards.

This event involves six 45-minute presentations by leading experts delivering practical advice on how to become an Employer of Choice, why businesses should, and what to expect when they do.
