Brasov – A captivating and vibrant city.


Disruptive innovations create new business opportunities and models while destroying the old ones. Technology has already started replacing a vast majority of jobs, creating others and reshaping the way in which we do business.

We are currently at the beginning of the 4th industrial revolution

Professional transformations are set in motion by globalisation and technological revolutions, especially a digital revolution – going from mechanical technology towards digital technology. The speed at which these changes are occurring is not going to slow down – in the next 20 years we will witness a continuous revolution of the workplace and workforce, marked by volatility, uncertainty and complexity..

Whilst the majority of people accept that these changes will revolutionise what we call “work” today, many analysts have opposing views regarding the characteristics of these changes and who will get the most out of them. On one hand, there are optimistic predictions regarding the future of work, where machinery will assist man in performing menial tasks, allowing people to enjoy more interesting jobs, with a better pay and more free time. On the other hand, there are some pessimistic predictions which portray a future where technology is threatening jobs and communities altogether.

The Great People Inside Conference: HR (R)Evolution will launch into interesting and challenging discussions regarding the pace of technological changes being made, the effects it has on jobs and the implications it has on HR, organisations, and employees.
Assembling specialists, practitioners and opinion leaders known worldwide, the 2-day programme combines thematic presentations, bold conversations and group discussions in an interesting manner, with the purpose of discovering techniques and strategies that will determine success in the near future, eliminating the uncertainty of this transitional moment and preparing for the rapid changes that occur in the workforce.
An event dedicated to sharing ideas, inspiration and information regarding the future of work.

According to a report done by Microsoft and Future Laboratory:

“Around 65% of school pupils will move into careers that don’t even exist yet. By 2025, the vast majority of the workforce will consist of the generation that has grown up while using mobile devices as the main source of interaction.”

Notorious Recruitment Entrepreneur | Sourcing Architect | Author of People as Merchandise | LinkedIn® Certified | TOP100

Josef Kadlec a.k.a. José is a former ethical hacker, digital forensic examiner and hardcore Linux engineer who went head over heels into the talent sourcing and recruitment industry utilizing his cross-field experience. Along with Milan Novak, the former board member of Grafton Recruitment, he co-founded the international app-only recruitment agency, GoodCall, specializing in social recruitment for 5-person start-ups as well as 10,000 person Fortune 500s.

He grew up on open source and loves to share his knowledge, implementing new software and hardware innovations into his staffing procedures – seeing companies not able to hire Java engineers and build their amazing next-gen products is just too painful otherwise. This is also the reason that he established the Recruitment Academy, to cultivate, collaborate, and raise the bar for sourcing and recruiting in Central & Eastern Europe.

His claim to fame is as the author of a controversial book People as Merchandise: Crack the Code to LinkedIn Recruitment recommended by Barbara Corcoran from ABC’s Shark Tank, the rogue recruiter David E. Perry and HR directors of companies such as IBM, Barclays, Randstad, Hewlett-Packard, Manpower, AVG and Google.

He still spends a few days per week as a speaker and trainer helping companies like ExxonMobil, Foxconn, Siemens, Nestle, Volkswagen, Adecco, Raiffeisenbank, Randstad, Merck, Ikea, Lenovo, Hilton and others to advance their talent sourcing capabilites. Josef also hasn’t fully left the software business as he’s an advisor and investor in a data-driven, people analytics ATS called Datacruit.

Josef was featured in Forbes in 2015 and as a very pragmatic speaker and writer he loves to publish thorough, analytical and hands-on articles. He lives in Prague, Czech Republic and likes beer.

He started his career in banking in 2005, at EFG Retail Services, and within two years he was already Senior Relationship Manager at Credit Europe Bank, building a relationship with the important retailers in the marketplace in order to implement and accept the bank’s POS services. Shortly after ABN AMRO was taken over by the Royal Bank of Scotland, he was recruited for the position of Merchant Manager in the cards division of the bank, being in charge ofthe sales and advertising strategies, as well as the main customers of the bank.
In August 2009, he began his collaboration with Citibank as a Business Development & Cards Partnerships Manager, focusing exclusively on the B2B division – marketing and sales strategies for bank cards. During the four years in which he occupied this position, he implemented and managed the biggest sales network in the local banking sector: 450 retailers with over 2000 outlet stores. During that time, he started a partnership with the Ministry of Culture, through which Citibank cardholders had unlimited access to 17 of the most visited museums in Romania (the Peles Castle, the National Village Museum, Brukenthal etc), a benefit which proved to be not only unique, but also one of the most used in the banking system.

After approximately 4 years at Citibank, in June 2013, he was recruited by Western Union for the position of Senior Manager in charge of developing bank transfer services for 12 countries in Central and Eastern Europe.

Benefit Online is the solution I wish I had received from every company I worked for, and, now that we have launched this product onto the market, I am confident that it will make many employees happier and more motivated.”

“Participating as partners at the “Great People Inside: The New World of Work” Conference has been an extraordinary experience for CoCos (Corporate Coaching Solutions). Besides the quality of the speakers, both local and international, the Conference’s organisation has been exceptional. The GPI team has been thoughtful and always with a smile on their faces. Mister Dima, the CEO, could be seen communicating with every participant, always open to discussions with a positive and constructive energy. Surely, next year we will be back in Brașov for the next edition of GPI’s Conference.”
