Business Talks Better & Beyond: Top Employers Institute joins virtual business forum in Bulgaria
How to protect your business from cyber-attacks through training and tech protection and where does the Employer Branding Manager actually belong – in HR or PR? You can find out the answers to these questions, and many more, as part of the 2021 Business Talks Better & Beyond online event that will take place on April 8th. For the first time ever in Bulgaria, the forum will be joined by the Top Employers Institute, whose representatives will share their experience in best work-related practices.
The conference is a continuation of the successful Employer Branding Restart series, which has already had three practical virtual events, where big companies shared their “business for business” experience. Business Talks Better & Beyond focuses on innovation, technology, and digital communications for a better customer experience, global expansion and employer branding.
Speaking of employer branding, one of the panels will focus particularly on the benefits and challenges of this growingly popular profession. HR and PR managers will “clash” to find the place of the Employer Branding Manager within a company’s structure. Wherever it may be, one thing is certain – the need for employer branding is increasing amid the growing competition between brands.
Another panel will be dedicated to cyber security – an equally important topic and a growing threat to businesses worldwide. Did you know that every 39 seconds a cyber-attack takes place in the world? Last fall, several big Bulgarian businesses were simultaneously hit by a similar attack, blocking their systems completely. As part of the “Cyber Security” panel, experts will discuss ways to restrict the risks of cyber crises, and the importance of training and technical protection. Speakers to be announced soon!
