How HR should lead the shift

Insights Track

Case studies, practical master classes and lot of conversations

How the HR function is constantly reinvented itself in line with technological advancements? Is Robotic Process Automation – threat to the HR function or an opportunity?

We have been traditionally taught to leave emotions outside the workplace. Clinical conversations and clipped powerpoints have become the tools for a successful manager. With changing workforce, and a large number of millennials joining it, leveraging emotions might hold the key to successful organisations

With evolution of the business landscape and advent of newer technology, the approach of the HR organization also needs to transform. How has cloud based HR technology impacted the various facets of the HR organization including talent, engagement, analytics, workforce management and performance and What are the focus areas for the HR organization of tomorrow.

With snacking content gaining traction across digital and social platforms, is it enough to rehash offline communication today? Should brands be thinking about ‘Made for Digital’ content for telling their brand stories?

Mobile: What’s Real, what’s Myth and what’s total BS? The buzz word is mobile, and for HR is no different. What can mobile do to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of talent interventions, what are its limitations - less talk, more facts!
