About the event

As organisations look to globalise operations, are you prepared to embrace the workforce of the future?

Heralded as an unstoppable force of industry disruption, AI and talent analytics have been portrayed as either god-sent answers or tough competition to the queries of IR 5.0. Is this however, a crystal ball for your workforce? Let’s agree to disagree.

Following its immense success in Thailand, Accelerate-HR 2020 (A-HR) brought to you by Human Resources Online, is the trailblazer that will break new grounds and venture into answering your challenges of “how-to”’, “so what?” and “what’s next?”

We invite you to join the conversation which promises to be thought-provoking, argumentative and honest, and at the same time constructive with the movers and shakers of Malaysia’s HR industry.

It’s time to accelerate your digital talent strategy to drive the growth of your business. Are you ready?

As seasoned HR professionals and talent in the workplace, we are all faced with these challenges when it comes to elevating the HR function in the organisation:

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 remaining 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.

Developing effective teams

Often times HR struggles with tapping into the full potential of high performing individuals to successfully unlock effective teams. This is why employee engagement and empowerment are pivotal topics.
