As organisations and their employees continue to adapt to a new world of work, forward-looking HR teams are already considering a range of different business scenarios for the future as part of their business planning.

To provide key insights into how organisations can build an effective long-term strategy, CHRO Malaysia, which is taking place on November 18, will highlight why a shift to human-centric leadership is critical for the future of work.

Moderated by Jason Averbook, Global Keynote Speaker, and CEO & Co-Founder, Leapgen, the panel discussion titled, Adapting to The Work and The Workforce of Tomorrow – How HR is Taking the Lead in Shaping the Future of Work, will also explain why the evolving role of HR involves embracing change, and how HR can ensure that their organisation is spot-on with their culture that will last them through the rapidly changing world of work.

CHRO Malaysia is part of the CHRO Online Series 2021 organised by HRM Asia to address the most critical initiatives and issues impacting CHROs as they build their future organisation.

From distributed working models to employee engagement, skills gaps to pay parity, talent shortages to brand new, undefined skills that are yet to be scoped, the role of HR has never been more important, said John Antos, Vice-President Strategy, Global Payroll & Asia Pacific, ADP.
