Recover, thrive and disrupt at this pan-Asia virtual conclave of HR minds

Unifying HR and business leaders from across Asia under one virtual roof, the region’s pioneer of bespoke HR events – Human Resources Online – is proud to unveil a refreshing lens into the bold new future of HR leadership.

#AccelerateHR sets forth an ambitious agenda for forward-thinking leaders across Asia. Join us as we turn this new reality into a journey of endless opportunities to adapt, sustain and create true value.

Drawing on the expertise of local, regional and international HR thought leaders, we spotlight the two most relevant themes to catalyse HR in 2021 – Learning & Development and People Analytics. The full three-days of content will grant you access not only to the cross-pollination of best practices from your peers across sectors but also, you’ll deeply benefit from the diversity in thought.

Thank you for supporting #AccelerateHR 2020 virtually.
We look forward to seeing you again.

When we went virtual in 2020, we knew we had to offer you a competitive edge. The 2020 agenda was carefully curated to spotlight the two most relevant themes to catalyse HR in 2021 – Learning and Development and People Analytics, alongside themes that unveiled a refreshing lens into the bold future of HR leadership.

With social distancing measures put in place globally in the midst of a public health crisis, we turned this new reality into a golden opportunity to adapt, sustain and create true value.  This would not have been possible without the unwavering support from our delegates and speakers for embracing the virtual mode of delivery for #AccelerateHR 2020.

Why two streams within #AccelerateHR?

#AccelerateHR aims to help business leaders critically analyse how and what you can do to move your business to the next level in the most cost-effective yet impactful way. This year, we spotlight two relevant and important topic areas across all industries, HR functions and seniorities:

With tight labour markets and the shortened shelf life of skills, the L&D function plays a critical role in helping employees acquire and grow the right skills to maintain market competitiveness.

In this theme, explore the exciting world of L&D through three blocks of a learning organisation:
1. A supportive learning environment.
2. Concrete learning processes and practices
3. Leadership behaviour that provides reinforcement.

 

With the proliferation of analytics, AI and HR cloud, organisations and leaders must remain agile to effectively adapt to the future of work to improve bottom-line business results.

This theme will allow you to dive deeper on how to better use data to support your talent life cycle and improve business performance.

Common challenges HR professionals face;
Let’s tackle the issues together

As seasoned HR professionals, we are all faced with these challenges when it comes to accelerating the HR function and performance in our organisations. It’s time to identify the causes and start asking questions that will lead us to solutions. While we may not have the full answers now, let’s get onto the Accelerate HR community to source for ideas, proven case studies and tap on the robust and in-depth expert knowledge from the speakers.

Making sense of data

HR leaders are overwhelmed and drowning with choice when it comes to analysing relevant data in order to identify patterns that have immense impact on the business. Hence being equipped with the skill sets to tell and “sell” the data story is much needed.

Strategic business alignment

Looking beyond the tools, HR needs to strengthen its position as a valued business partner by being agile and adaptable to the demands of the fast changing environment. There is a need to address the root problems which would begin with strategic alignment.

Measurements and insights

Many HR teams are grappling with how to measure the effectives of their programmes, and how to derive actionable results that will ensure business profitability and sustainability.

Achieving business goals through effective teams

Often times HR struggles with tapping into the full potential of high performing individuals to successfully unlock effective teams. As skills emerge, evolve and expire, L&D plays a critical role in boosting employee skills preparedness.
