HR redefined: What does next generation HR look like?

HR Tech Festival Asia Online 2021 will take a deep dive into leadership and other key HR functions that will shape the future of work
By: | July 13, 2021

One of the biggest challenges facing HR leaders today, is to stay on top of the multiple external factors that are impacting businesses and their employees.

Forward-looking HR leaders, however, are those who see the events of 2020 as a real opportunity to access their practices and approaches with fresh eyes, said Lars Schmidt, Author and Founder of Amplify.

He added, “What if we build the function from the ground up based on all of today’s realities? What would we change? What would we hold on to? These are the types of thought exercises that are so important right now, and there is so much potential in what we can build, and our role in creating better workplaces for employees.”

Joining HR Tech Festival Asia Online 2021 as a keynote speaker on Wednesday, September 22 at 10am (SGT), Schmidt will discuss how the role of the CHRO is evolving as the next generation of HR continues to take shape.

Powered by ADPHR 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.
