Since 2020, the pandemic lockdown, economic slowdowns, soaring inflation, and geo-political tensions have converged to create a perform storm of continuous disruption for organisations around the world.

Some continue to seek the balance between in-person and remote work, while others are grappling with a mismatch of manpower skills and a decline in employee mental wellbeing. In response, many organisations are concentrating their resources on short-term results, a counter-productive approach, said Go Ashokh Menon, Agile Coach and Facilitator, One Synergy Global.

He told HRM Asia, “The reality is, we will be seeing more disruptions in the future as technology improves, customer needs change, and employee expectation shifts. By focusing on short-term survival, organisations are missing out on trends and opportunities to build a future-growth resilient organisation.”

Instead, forward-thinking organisations are those who seek growth opportunities based on the shifting trends that will affect the near future, added Menon, who will be at HR Tech Fest Connect 2023, a one-day, all-virtual event organised by HRM Asia.

In his presentation titled, Driving Future Growth: How Organisations Can Identify Trends & Opportunities, Menon will explore how leaders can organise and engage a resilient workforce, and what they need to do different to support their teams as they navigate the future.

He added, “We need to review our past actions, reframe new opportunities, and reset impactful actions for the future. Join me at HR Tech Fest Connect 2023 as I share trends that could impact your business and share actionable ideas on how to identify future strategic opportunities, organise collaborative high-impact resilient teams, and develop self-aware leaders.”

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.
