By: | April 29, 2021

With COVID-19 vaccines becoming more widely available, organisations are looking to reopen offices and bring workers back into the workplace. However, the fact remains that hybrid working is here to stay.

What then, are the key HR capabilities and skills that leaders must have in this new era of the hybrid workforce management?

As these leaders continue to lead the reimagination and redesign of organisations with precision, they need to think, act and perform like futurists if they are to attain success, suggested Dr Terri Horton MBA, MA, SHRM-CP, Workforce Futurist and Founder of FuturePath.

During her keynote presentation at HR Tech Fest Connect 2021 titled HR leaders: Think, act and perform like a futurist!, Dr Horton will present a framework for thinking, acting and performing like a futurist through resilience, hyper-relevance and audacious boldness so that organisations are prepared to thrive in the dynamic unfolding of the future of work.

In a hybrid work environment, organisations that will be successful in attracting and retaining talent will be those that offer their teams maximum choice and flexibility, suggested Alex Badenoch, Transformation, Communications and People Group Executive, Telstra.

Her presentation, titled Leadership trends for a new workplace experience in 2021 and beyond, will highlight how the core of successful leadership includes the ability to nurture personal connections and empowering teams to be more productive and innovative by working in ways that best suit them.

Looking ahead to a new era in the workforce, Johannes Eckold, Director, HCM Strategy & Business Development ASEAN, Oracle, will discuss how HR practitioners are busy reskilling their workforce, addressing mental health issues and planning manpower for a future that is still uncertain.

In his presentation titled The era of Super-HR is here, Eckold will detail the ‘HR superpowers’ that he believes will be required for organisations to succeed and thrive in the #newnormal.

Organised by HRM Asia and powered by ADP, HR Tech Fest Connect 2021 is Asia’s largest regional flagship conference for HR and work tech and will take place from May 27-28.
