HRM Asia’s CHRO Series, the leading in-person platform for key HR and business leaders to share insights, experiences, and ideas, is returning to South-East Asia in 2024.

And it is all kicking off at the Sheraton Saigon Hotel & Towers in Ho Chi Minh City on June 13, where the inaugural CHRO Vietnam 2024, jointly organised by HRM Asia and the Vietnam Human Resources Association (VNHR), will delve into key industry trends and discuss pertinent topics relating to evolving HR leadership, formulation of people and talent strategies, workforce reskilling, strategic deployment of innovative HR technologies, improving employee engagement and workplace experience, and more.

For instance, Tran Minh Huong, Country Head of HR, Vietnam, Standard Chartered Bank; Pham Lan Anh, CHRO, Generali Vietnam Life Insurance; and Le Thanh Nguyen An, CHRO, VinaCapital, will be part of a panel discussion that examines how organisations can align technology imperatives and people strategies to scale business growth and efficiency.

To provide insights into how organisations can respond effectively to various workforce needs in a digital and globalised environment, An Vo, Managing Partner & Regional Director, Asia-Pacific, Janus Executive Search & Talent Advisory, will lead a fireside chat that will offer key tips to create a holistic and people-centric talent management experience.

Joining An will be Alexis Pham, Chief People Officer, Masterise Group; and Phung Minh An, Group Head of Talent Management & Organisational Development, Techcombank.

Also joining CHRO Vietnam 2024 is Tam Thanh Nguyen, CHRO, Masan Group, who will discuss how HR leadership can be leveraged to steer organisational development and performance; while Ngo Thanh Phong, Country Sales Manager, Workforce Optimizer, will highlight how people management can be revolutionised with AI-powered workforce optimisation.

For CHROs in Vietnam looking for more ideas on how to foster a corporate culture of continuous learning, recognition, wellness and progress, Ton That Anh Vu, CHRO, Manulife Vietnam, will share how Manulife Vietnam is prioritising skills enhancement and mastery in the age of talent mobility and career growth.

With many organisations still trying to understand how environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors fit into their overall business strategy, Joanne Flinn’s session on embedding ESG goals in business governance and people strategies is not to be missed.

The Chairwoman of The ESG Institute will delve into topics such as the challenges and know-how to ESG governance and disclosure. She will also highlight the role HR can play in advancing ESG practices, and how organisations can adopt green taxonomy and establish a proper framework for ESG reporting.
