CHROs, HR gurus & leaders



Be part of Asia’s most exciting and progressive gathering of HR leaders, change makers and disruptors as they celebrate the talent, technology and ideas in this remarkable era of workplace transformation.

Future-forward and inspiring – and meticulously researched – #AccelerateHR is designed to unfold the complexities of tomorrow and explore the new realities that will dominate the workplace in 2023 and beyond.


The last 3 years have changed everything. For businesses. For leaders. For employees. Now, as the dust settles, one fact becomes clear: Power has shifted.

From organisations to people.

As organisations plan for 2023 and beyond, CHROs and HR leaders grapple with talent shortages, rising costs, supply scarcity and other issues that required an agile and resilient strategic plan. Whilst the future remains uncertain, innovation and technology continue to lead instrumental change in the nature of work. Now, more than ever, is the time to reimagine why, where, and how work gets done — and unleash endless potential of an ever-evolving workplace and meeting the changing workforce expectations. 

Back, bigger, better, and what’s more, as an in-person event happening live in Singapore –Accelerate HR 2023 brought to you by Human Resources Online is a prominent HR event you can’t afford to miss. Be inspired with over 30 deep-dive sessions from leading workplace trailblazers and HR innovators as they foster creative collisions via future forward keynotes, informative case study-driven breakout sessions, interactive panels and debates, fireside chats, and spark high-value discussions with over 250 people leaders in the region.

The two-day, power-packed agenda is designed to help CHROs and HR leaders meet the demands of the future through the discovery of megatrends that are profoundly changing people management practices – and together, how we can forge people-centred future of work.

As we head in 2023, CHROs and HR leaders face a new set of challenges, including an unpredictable economy, undervaluation companies, massive layoffs across the technology industry and talent shortages in skilled labor industries. Take a glimpse on some of the new trends that will emerge in 2023 from the HR leaders:

“The last two years have been very different and unlike any in the past. The struggle to juggle between surviving a pandemic and delivering work results often caused stress, lack of productivity and burnout. This became a catalyst for the emergence of a new paradigm in employee experience. We are forced to now think of talent as not just competencies needed to sustain the business, but as “people” who need to be provided with an experience that goes beyond the necessary infrastructure and reward programs. Employers have to make the employee experience a priority and consider how to ensure an engaging experience that is more holistic and drives loyalty. “

“Purpose anchors organisations in everything that they do, and it articulates value to existing and potential employees, customers, and stakeholders. It is good for business, with more than half of purpose-driven companies reporting that they experienced 10% business growth compared to 42% of non-purpose-driven companies, according to a Harvard Business Review study. It is good for people, as research has shown that strong purpose is key to attracting and retaining talent. And finally, it is good for the world. In the coming years, purpose will lead the way for organisations and businesses and will anchor everything we do!”

“Agility defines the future. As more organisations focus on importance of a skills-based talent model, effective internal mobility through an agile workforce will rise above competition, while leaders continue to reimagine the talent model beyond attracting and retaining. We should always hire with the mentality that top-tier talent will never be stagnant. Like an atom, it needs to be energised by continuously reskilling and driving knowledge sharing. With that, a vibrant internal talent marketplace will be born that offers strength in culture and sustainability. “

Over the last three years we have been moving from one crisis to another. Silver lining is that digitalisation gained momentum, and we learned a lot about hybrid working and reskilling was at the forefront. We step into 2023 with uncertainties on several fronts. Given the uncertainty I believe prudence or doing more with less will be the key mantra for 2023. What does this mean for HR? Perhaps we will see doubling down on reskilling and expansion of platform workers. A good reskilling initiative can play a significant role in promoting internal mobility thus reducing over-reliance on new hires which is expensive and time consuming. And the second trend around expansion of platform workers will gain momentum as this gives a new source for niche talent to fill the skills shortage in the short term.

“2023 will be a year of uncertainty – high inflationary, an ongoing war in Europe, US-China relationships, and the lingering effects of the pandemic. What makes 2023 different from the past downturns is that we will have varying situations across industries, geographies and even within different functions in the same organisation. Furthermore, the pandemic had literally changed all rules of engagement – hybrid working, cross-border employment, and gig workers. The talent landscape had changed completely.

HR professionals now find themselves in the co-pilot seat to help guide and influence the leaders and businesses through this. The traditional approaches and mechanics may not necessarily work. HR professionals will need to be more agile and creative in their approaches, backed by better insights to ‘see through this fog of war’ and, lastly, to remain anchored with a human heart in the approaches. “
