By: | August 11, 2021

The pandemic has highlighted the urgent need to address growing insecurities in the world of work. In South-East Asia, this includes considering the differing abilities of businesses and workers to adapt to accelerated digital transformation, differing levels of access to training and skills upgrading, as well as challenges faced in developing an inclusive workplace culture that supports mental well-being and work life harmony.

In an exclusive collaboration with Singapore’s Ministry of Manpower, HR Tech Festival Asia Online 2021 is bringing back the popular ASEAN Future of Work conference track. Taking place on Thursday, September 23, the conference track will bring together regional senior government, union and employer representatives, to share lessons learnt from COVID-19 on promoting inclusivity in the future world of work.

In view of the International Labour Organisation’s global call to orient a human-centred recovery that is inclusive, sustainable and resilient, the speakers will also discuss the pertinent challenges and opportunities for regional tripartite partners to build more inclusive ecosystems to embrace industry 4.0, make lifelong learning a reality for all and support well-being and work life harmony.

Zaqy Mohamad, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Defence and Ministry of Manpower, Singapore, will also be kicking off HR Tech Festival Asia Online 2021 with the opening remarks on Tuesday, September 21.

A completely virtual event, HR Tech Festival Asia Online 2021 is taking place from September 21-23 and is brought to you by the industry’s global leading HR media and event organisers HR Tech Conference Las Vegas, HRE Magazine US, HRM Magazine and HRM Asia.
