About the event

Our #AccelerateHR story

Recruitment, talent retention, development and career progression of employees no longer follow the rules of the past. While the HR function has been on the brink of disruption since the pandemic unravelled, the true question to ask ourselves would be: How are you going to define HR’s path forward to emerge stronger than ever?

As HR evolves to take on a more strategic business enablement role, it’s impact on the organisation’s competitiveness and value proposition, especially during unprecedented times of crisis, has been a gamechanger.

At Accelerate HR 2020, be emboldened to optimise your current strategies as you strive for an engaged, agile and productive workforce in 2021 and beyond. We want you to tap into the full potential of your employees but first- Upgrade them. Develop them. Inspire and empower them. Thereafter, watch them bring their A-game to work, while you work behind the scenes dishing out business advice through your metrics dashboard.

Join a community of hand- picked trailblazers, thought leaders and industry experts pushing the boundaries of human capital management and development. Explore the role of HR in a post pandemic world and how you can better integrate your people strategy with your business strategy. Walk away with access to research-backed sessions, expert advice and interactions with passionate colleagues — over three days, on the same platform.

Why two streams within #AccelerateHR?

In the blink of an eye, the business world has been upended.

Organisations are suddenly facing the challenge of reskilling and upskilling employees, to close the technical and soft skills gap at a much quicker pace, accelerated by the global pandemic. Since the future is now, employers should focus on inclusive growth through a holistic business lens in order to successfully evolve in pace with the recent trail of disruption.

As such, this year we are highlighting two key themes that have been identified by you as most relevant and important now more than ever, across all industries, HR functions and seniorities:

Together with our stellar speaker line-up, we believe that it is through training that HR can prepare talent to perform optimally in a highly globalised and competitive environment. When employees areill-equipped with the skills they need, productivity dips and keeping things running like a well-oiled machine is tough. But when they’re skilled, it is a whole new ball game, with innovation and teamwork thriving.

With tight labour markets and the shortened shelf life of skills, creating and maintaining market competitiveness hinges on the L&D function’s ability to help employees acquire and grow the right skills.

This track will allow you to explore the exciting world of L&D through three blocks of a learning organisation: A supportive learning environment, concrete learning processes and practices, and leadership behaviour that provides reinforcement.

Now is an opportune time to understand where your HR team lacks finesse in its L&D agenda, and adapt these valuable lessons to enhance your business goals.

“There are over 2,700 HR apps on the market with a recent three-year expenditure of $16 billion.” – Josh Bersin, Founder and Dean of The Josh Bersin Academy

Technology has taken a quantum leap by virtually impacting every aspect of the HR function, thereby heralding new ways of working. 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.

To help you achieve your goals and push the frontiers of HR tech in your organisation, our speakers in this track will offer you thought- provoking insights beyond adoption. Accelerate HR aims to help business leaders critically analyse how and what else you can do to move your business to the next level in the most cost-effective yet impactful way.
