What did we cover in 2021?

In 2021, our expert panel of HR leaders and gurus shared with delegates from all over the world on various aspects of the HR landscape via our three tracks:


Embracing change

We looked at how business leaders and HR professionals can work together to redesign how their organisations will be led in the future. L’Oreal and P&G shared how they have empowered their managers to be the catalyst in driving a DE&I culture. Bayer Crop Science, meanwhile, showed the audience how agility and adaptability will overtake procedures when it comes to fostering the correct culture in companies.


Enabling change

We took a look at how companies can re-write outdated HR strategies. The Coca-Cola Company was there to enlighten the audience on how leaders must play the role of network leadership when it comes to managing and leading a distributed workforce. foodpanda also gave tips on how companies can fight presenteeism by implementing proper work-life balance policies for employees.


Sustaining change

Once your company started its journey to enable the changes needed to face the challenges of the HR landscape, how do you sustain them in the long run? This track answered that question. Publicis Groupe highlighted the need for companies to reinvent their recruitment and talent mobility approach to drive employee retention and attract top talents. Malaysia Airlines Berhad stressed how important it was to balance HRIT and the human aspect.
