What people are saying
Deputy Director General
Human Resources and the way we manage them both need to be qualitatively different for organizations of tomorrow. Rapid and radical changes we are witnessing at the workplace and in the nature of the work and its context, have huge implication for how we understand and undertake HR roles. As we move more deeply into the new organizational order of tomorrow, we will need abundance of multiple talents and adequacy of strategies, systems and capacity to manage them, if organizations are to survive and thrive.
A strategic shift in this direction will be critical for developing future-fit organizations. The change requires transforming HR philosophy, policies, and practices with central thrust on enlisting and enriching talent. Our preparations for such changes are, though, too little and too late.
Discourse on the contents and the process of HR transformation is urgent, and their design and delivery critical. In this context, the conference on HR for Tomorrow: Trends and Transformation is a timely and welcome initiative of HRSN to create a platform for this purpose. HR professionals, academics, and organizational leaders would do well to join and engage in the process of transforming HR and its management.
