The ASEAN Future of Work Conference is also back for its third run! Speakers from regional governments, unions, and the public sector will share insights on how they put people first in their strategies to recover from the pandemic. Speakers will also discuss how different stakeholders can work together to balance varying needs and interests, as we adapt to post-COVID business models and ways of working.

Besides these exciting highlights, the highly anticipated Content Arena presented during HR Tech Festival Asia Online 2022 will examine some of the most critical issues and challenges facing HR leaders in 2022.
