Register Now

The emerging trends in digitizations such as cloud computing, ubiquitous connectivity and big data analytics are fundamentally altering the structure of business models across industries. As digitization pervades every aspect of business, the assumptions and rules behind HR and talent management are being redefined. HR is transforming from a support role in reacting to the needs of business strategy in recruitment, compensation and training to a proactive role in cocreating a culture of transparency in facilitating digitally savvy managers and employees. Social media such as Facebook, that connect billions of people across the globe based on their common interest and profiles, kindle new expectations in talent management within the firms. Managers and employees expect contextual visibility to talent within the organization as roles and responsibilities are redefined to meet the market demands. In this forum, our speakers will highlight the major challenges and opportunities facing HR and Talent Management and discuss specific practices adopted in their organizations.
