The evolving business landscape demands a reimagined approach to HR leadership. As organisations navigate disruption, shifting employee expectations, and technological advancements, HR plays a pivotal role in fostering a culture of belonging and equity, leveraging technologies, and supporting talent mobility.

These key trends will be the focus of CHRO Singapore, an event organised by HRM Asia, taking place on 7 December 2023 at the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel.

Under the theme, HR 2024 and Beyond: How CHROs Can Shape Organisational and Workforce Transformation, CHRO Singapore will commence with a keynote address by Low Yen Ling, Minister for Culture, Community and Youth, and Minister of State for Trade and Industry in Singapore. This will be followed by an opening keynote, Sustaining Success: Navigating HR’s Rebirth Amidst Disruption, by Dr Tanvi Gautam, HR Influencer, Keynote Speaker and Transformational Leadership Expert.

In today’s competitive environment, organisations must excel in managing people, culture, and data effectively. To address this multifaceted challenge, Dr Jaclyn Lee, CHRO of Certis, will present a session titled Managing People, Data and Culture in the Modern Organisation. Dr Lee will highlight the importance of employee experience, data-driven decision-making, and a continuous mindset for cultural transformation.
