Beyond paradox. The secret of success.

Beyond paradox. The secret of success.

A ticket to SLOVEnian HR Summit 2020 will give you a passport to explore what are the region’s most dynamic, committed and successful HR practice. You’ll meet HR leaders who brought their stories to the world stage and you’ll encounter a new generation of HR most forward-thinking professionals.

This year we are focusing on paradoxes. Why? Think twice!

Some of the most important truths in life are contradictory on the surface. For example, the area of talents is divided on those, who bet on millennials and whose who bet on the older pearls of wisdom, when it comes to smart work some swear on technology and AI, while the other half claims that there is nothing above the human capital. When we incorporate both sides of a paradox in our organization or ourselves, we become stronger. Learning to cope with paradoxes is a life-long learning challenge. However, HR of the future is able to balance paradoxes. This is where their secret of success lies in.

On the occasion of SLOVEnia HR Summit 2020, you’ll have the opportunity to learn about new HR trends, and importantly, about evolving attitudes towards it.

Our event is the biggest event for HR community in Slovenia, connecting over 400 HR professionals and practitioners from business and public sectors; building its reputation on tradition, great content, latest research, top know-how, and interactive presentations – all rounded up with networking and having fun. This year SLOVEnia HR Summit takes place in the relaxing coastal landscape of Portorož.

If you’re a true HR lover, this is one event you simply cannot miss.


Places are limited and in high demand, with 400 tickets available. Reserve your place.

This year we are going to gather around the theme “Contemporary Paradoxes”. We are going to discuss the continuous evolution of HR’s role by emerging paradoxes:

1.) Younger vs Older Generations

food-for-thought: The young generation will change the world, only if the older let and teach them how.

2.) Crises vs Opportunity

food-for-thought: Everyone wants things to better tomorrow, and yet at the same time we are terrified of change.

3.) Technology vs Human

food-for-thought: How technology can make our work more human?

4.) Competencies for Today vs Competencies for Tomorrow

food-for-thought: Are core competencies stable, or have they become transactional skills in today’s world?
