Hybrid working is the great equaliser and it’s here to stay. The organisations that will be successful in attracting and retaining talent will be those that offer their teams maximum choice and flexibility.

With Gen Z entering the workforce and Baby Boomers working past the age of retirement, leading the Multigenerational Workforce will become critical to business success – now more than ever – yet, few organizations are seriously committed to it.

During this session, Rachele Focardi, global thought-leader in multigenerational workforce dynamics and published author, will reveal the origins of intergenerational conflicts and provide groundbreaking strategies to address them.
Every business in Southeast Asia and across the globe is currently undergoing an experience transformation as they rewrite the playbook for the way we work. While many organisations and individuals discovered new and better ways to work during a year of unrelenting change, this shift requires employers to rethink and redesign their employee experience – from knowing how to safeguard business continuity and success when employees work remotely through to ensuring every employee is heard equally to prevent organisational bias.

The business landscape has shifted dramatically over the past year, with many of the changes we’ve made to adapt leaving a permanent imprint on how we work and live. As we continue to operate within a climate of uncertainty, organisations are embarking on defining the next normal for our workplaces and people.
To ensure organisations continue to survive and thrive in today’s new world of work, there has never been a more pressing demand for Talent Acquisition (TA) teams to rethink and reconfigure their recruitment strategies. Other than grappling with attracting and acquiring new talent to support business-as-usual, they also need to move fast to support critical growth phases and unexpected hiring demands. But this begs the question, are they prepared and capable to hire in an accelerated capacity to support business demands? Many aren’t prepared to operate ‘outside the lines’, but the good news is they don’t have to do it alone.
Join Neil Jones, Regional Managing Director of APAC, AMS, and Madeline Laurano, Founder, Aptitude Research as they discuss how recruitment outsourcing can fill the TA capacity gaps on a smaller-scale project basis, while helping teams grow capability at the same time.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forever altered work as we know it. Everything from the type of work that gets done to where, when, how, and who gets the work done has undergone dramatic change. Together, HRM Asia and human capital research firm i4cp have conducted a global study detailing what the next era of work will look like.
Join i4cp’s chief research officer Kevin Martin for an exclusive, early look at key findings to get a snapshot of:
- How high-performance organizations are already enabling effective collaboration, innovation, and employees’ sense of connection in a hybrid working environment
- What the role of the traditional office will be going forward and how will decisions be made about who will work onsite, remote, or hybrid
- How the APAC region differs (or is similar) to other parts of the world
By 2025, the workplace will look profoundly different as flexible work arrangements give rise to the “economy of individuals”. That leads to a world of opportunity where HR Leaders can source talent globally. But it also raises concerns: if everyone is an independent, what does this mean for your workforce? During this session we’ll discuss:
- Let’s meet your 2025 employee – are you ready for this era as a HR Leader?
- How you can create a dynamic talent approach
- What do HR Leaders need to do now?

In addition to the current disruption from the pandemic, technological adoption by companies will transform tasks, jobs and skills by 2025. Organizations around the world play a critical role in skilling their workforce in order to be prepared for this transformation. We are seeing an evolution of workplace learning with organizations taking a skills-first approach to build critical skills for critical roles. Join this session to see how your organization can implement this new model of workplace learning.
Preparing for the future of work has never been more integral for organizations today. The way we work has been profoundly altered and will continue to evolve, with technology as a key driver. The imperative now is to organize for this future, leap forward in iterative ways, and strengthen the skills and capabilities that will be critical for success.
Remote work facilitated migration and democratized the workplace for many professionals. As employees move to their city or country of preference, leaders need to upskill their workforce for remote work, and clue in their legal and HR teams on the compliance, legislative, and logistical adaptations that are necessary to protect their company and teams.

The hybrid workplace – a new world paradigm, but with old world rules on health and safety. 2020 achieved what many IT Directors has been endeavouring for two decades and more. What then are the responsibilities of employers in the new world? How far do their duties extend and what do they cover? With mental health taking centre stage, how is this to be managed? As part of the HS mantra, can employers mandate vaccination? If yes, is this sufficient protection? A session to explore how issues need to be relooked and policies on managing health and safety will need to be redrawn by HR.
2020 has proven to us just how quickly the world can change. It has taught us that when change occurs, people decisions need to be made quickly to ensure business continuity, and that identifying and utilizing existing talent is essential for survival.
Factoring in work context is critical and improves predictions of performance by 3x. SHL conducted one of the largest and most comprehensive studies on what predicts leader success in today’s work environment. We’ve learned that there are 27 contextual leadership challenges that matter most to making or breaking leaders’ performance—and that leaders with certain attributes are likely to be more successful with some challenges and less with others.
Join SHL’s session to learn how to use:
- the power of context to align and develop leaders to business strategy
- a more agile and dynamic approach to leadership identification and development to increase the speed and accuracy of your talent mobility decisions in an unpredictable environment
- data to help uncover “hidden-gems” within your organisation and improve diversity and engagement
- re-use objective data to make real time talent management decisions from high potential identification to succession planning
Simply having a diverse workforce or an inclusive culture will not suffice as employees seek opportunities to develop themselves and gain enhanced experiences. To create a diverse, inclusive, and equitable workplace culture, organizations must form a business strategy that tackles the underlying systemic hurdles to creating a DEI culture and put resources behind it. So how do we move from focusing on hiring diverse candidates to building a DEI strategy? Join this session and hear from Industry Expert, Sophie Guerin, Head of Diversity & Inclusion, APAC at Johnson & Johnson and Co-Chair and founding member American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) Singapore as she outlines the 3 trends to watch out for including what does the future holds in this space. Sophie would also provide practical examples from her years of experience being in the D&I field
