June 16, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Date: 16 June 2021
Time: 3pm – 5pm

Session 1: Rocket-boost Your Business: How HR Agility Can Drive Business Growth:

Learning Outcomes:

1. Emerging Trends of the 21st Century and Beyond 

  • Hybrid working world with technology – a need to rethink technology’s impact on culture and performance; team building and standards for behaviour and interaction in a virtual environment. 
  • Emergence of the Gig Economy – an economy which is based on flexible, temporary or freelance jobs; it can benefit workers and businesses by making work more adaptable and flexible (knowledge-based gigs vs service-based ones) 
  • Enhancing the employee experience – staying abreast of the demands of the new Millennials and Gen Z (from recruitment through the whole career journey) 
  • Striking a balance between machines and workers – what is the augmented workforce and how will it boost productivity and still cater for ‘essential human skills’?

2. What are the benefits and uncertainties for a business? 

    • An erosion of the traditional economic relationships between workers, businesses and clients  
    • Benefits: Lower labour costs, flexible staffing 
    • Uncertainty: Is your business ready to accommodate a model of ever-changing personnel?  

    3. How can you design a strategy to achieve your business goals? (the role of both HR and Management) 

    4. How can HR enable businesses to continue to succeed in this uncertain environment? 

    • HR at a new tempo: fast, adaptable, available: A rethinking of the entire workforce cycle – recruitment, performance management, learning and development, employee retention 
    • Redefining the roles of employees – deconstructing jobs in your organisation (task-oriented work) 
    • Build in measurement systems to better analyse gig work and hybrid work – need robust analytic platforms that have insight and value paths 
    • Smart technologies eg. AI, robotics, cloud-tech, mobile 
    • HR’s role is in being an early adopter + change management/overcoming opposition 
    • HR and leaders to create a culture of innovation/embracing change – engaging your employees from different generations
