With this panel, we bring an inspirational story of two friends whose hobby grew into a successful entrepreneurial venture crowned with numerous awards, all because of the courage to follow their dreams and professional ambition. Probably every employed person has once thought, "should I start something of my own". Tomislav and Hrvoje will share with us how they recognized the idea within themselves, decided to "hang up" their pilot uniforms, and started producing gin. In the panel, we will also address the question of whether their employers supported their ambition, whether they could and/or wanted to do something to retain them, and whether they succeeded in doing so. This is a story that will make each of us reflect as individuals, but also put additional emphasis on the role of HR in recognizing the interests of their employees, in empowering them, and building a sense of purpose in the job they do. Of course, all this with a glass of gin or two 🙂

Do you know which profession is in the top 3 most in-demand professions in Europe? Auto painter / Auto body repairer.
The reason? There has been a huge differentiation between the perception of the craft job of a painter and body repairer and the profession itself, specifically the technology that is possible in that profession, especially the robotization of the entire process in which the profession has a true technological character, but also contains a "craft" form in a way that it can go as far as to be the authorial work of the performer.
On the other hand, the need for vehicle repair, specifically the work of body repairers and painters, is becoming a pressing issue in Europe due to climate changes that have caused an increase in vehicle damage in certain periods and areas by as much as over 40%, due to increasingly frequent hailstorms and other natural disasters.

There probably isn't a person in this world, including HR professionals, for whom everything has always ended exactly as planned. The reality is that some of our projects don't take off, some are good but happen at the wrong time, sometimes we make the wrong estimate or make the wrong decision. In other words - he who works makes mistakes. Our panelists will share their experiences about when they found themselves in such a situation, what they learned from it, and how they worked on destigmatizing the culture of failure in their organizations, and changing the mindset that it is not shameful to always fail to realize our initial plans, but to see it as a necessary experience that can sometimes be key to success.
