HR executives to discuss:
The world of work, while navigating the most unprecedented business continuity crisis in modern history, is now operating under newer paradigms. The evolution of the workplace got rapidly accelerated and a new work culture is here to stay. Organizations across the globe are working towards adapting to this #newnormal and HR is at the driver’s seat of this transformation.
In a recent AI@Work global study, 78% of respondents say that 2020 is the most stressful year ever. From managing the highest ever workplace stress to safeguarding the mental well-being of the employees, from managing a distributed workforce to unleashing the power of AI, HR leaders are managing multiple transformation priorities at an overwhelming speed – and all of this when the role of HR itself is changing and evolving the most.
Focus Network, in partnership with Oracle, will be bringing leading HR thought leaders and fellow CHROs will discuss the contemporary HR challenges in Asia Pacific and what they are doing to stay ahead in the game. We value your exclusive insights and invite you to share your perspectives.
