Gen Z rising in Asia: A dynamic force for organisational change 

A panel discussion at HR Tech Connect 2023 will provide defining insights for organisations to better understand Gen Z employees in the workplace.
By: | August 17, 2023

With Gen Zs expected to make up about 30% of the global workforce by 2023, many organisations are rethinking their talent strategies to adapt to this emerging group of employees. 

Asia is no exception, as Dr Sandhya Karpe, Human Capital Center Leader, Asia and Programme Director of Asia Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Council, The Conference Board, told HRM Asia, “As more and more young people enter the workforce, companies are thinking very seriously about how they can leverage and integrate this great talent that could potentially bring some wonderful capabilities to the organisation, including their tech savviness, their extreme sensitivity to social justice issues, to climate change, to sustainability, all of which are becoming strategic priorities for many organisations across Asia.”

To gain a better understanding of Gen Z employees in the workplace, join Dr Sandhya at HR Tech Connect 2023, where she will be moderating a panel discussion titled Gen Z Rising in Asia: A Dynamic Force for Organisational Change, which will take a deep dive into what organisations can do to attract and retain a new generation of employees, while managing a multi-generational workforce and creating an inclusive workplace that provides fair opportunities for all employees.

Dr Sandhya added, “Our three speakers will share their own experiences with how they are leveraging Gen Z talent, what they are doing to attract and inspire this young group of people, and finally, how they are recalibrating their employer brands to make them more attractive to this younger group of employees.”

Joining Dr Sandhya on this exciting panel are Ruth Gellert-Neale, Chief Human Resources Officer Technology, APAC and EMEA, JLL Technologies; David Lim, SVP Human Resources, PVH Corp; and Wong Yang Sheng, Head of HR, Singapore, Australia and Brunei, Standard Chartered Bank.

Taking place on September 27, HR Tech Fest Connect 2023, with the theme of The Connected Workplace: Empowering HR Leaders to Build an Engaged & Resilient Workforce, will provide a timely platform for Asia’s HR community to come together to identify growth opportunities and drive organisational transformation.

The all-virtual event is also supported by Ceridian, who will be represented by Rob Squires, VP, Regional Head of Asia and Japan, who will explain how organisations can harness The Power of Mobilising the Boundless Workforce.

Drawing on key insights from Ceridian’s 2023 Executive Survey, Squires will share how organisations can optimise the right technologies and strategies to ignite the potential of the boundless workforce.

Also joining HR Tech Connect 2023 is Joshua Ooi, Senior Manager, Solutions Advisory, Ceridian. In his presentation, Ooi will highlight how Ceridian Dayforce is transforming human capital management (HCM) by providing a global people platform that unlocks workforce intelligence, empowers people, and helps organisations manage compliance.
