The world around us has changed rapidly since the onset of the global pandemic — and so has the way we work. As we adapt to a constantly evolving environment and accelerate towards the future, we need to adopt a balanced approach to HR that considers both short- and long-term solutions.
To meet these challenges, organizations need to continuously adapt, reinvent how they work, and transform their businesses to build value, flexibility and sustainability.
The Mercer’s 2021 Regional HR Virtual Conference themed Adapt. Reinvent. Transform. Accelerating towards the Future of Work took place on 1-2 September, and we welcomed more than 700 HR and business leaders from across Asia, Middle East and Africa at our virtual conference.
Our panel of speakers included 35 speakers from leading multinational companies such as The Economist Corporate Network, Standard Chartered, Mapletree, Santen, Dell, Johnson & Johnson, Jaguar Land Rover CBRE, Darussalam Assets, RPG Group and more. During the two days of the conference, these industry leaders along with Mercer experts provided insights and shared their experience on how to approach and take actions towards adapting, reinventing and transforming for the future of work.
The conference also offered a variety of digital networking opportunities to participants; the opportunity to deep dive into emerging challenges at our breakout sessions hosted by Mercer consultants on various topics of interest; and robust discussions with our peers on the latest HR trends and practices.
To view thought leadership and resources related to creating future-ready organizations, or if you would like to discuss any of the topics shared in detail, please contact us.
We look forward to welcoming you to our next conference in 2022.
