A must attend for HR professionals across all industry verticals.
With the fusion of technologies, the line between humans and machines is disappearing. In the future, perhaps, talent will be the most critical factor as usual roles will be taken over by robots or AI, automation making strategic HR planning an important component. Most mid to large sized organizations have a strategic plan that guides the organization in successfully meeting its mission. While organizations routinely complete financial plans to ensure they achieve organizational goals, the future also calls for daily workforce plans which today are not common. However, the need is to start making strategies today – in technology, workplace, skilling, retention among other spheres & hence will be a part of the key themes under scrutiny at the conclave.
