By: | July 29, 2020

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to reshape the world of work, many organisations are beginning to pay more attention to diversity and inclusion (D&I), including the empowerment of women in the workforce.

For Randstad, D&I is at the core of everything they do, revealed Anthea Collier, Managing Director, Randstad Sourceright APAC. “Our HR outsourcing partnerships means that we must become the enabler of our clients’ D&I strategy. We need to analyse the challenges, country by country, and then collaborate to build the plan which allows our client to realise their ambitious strategies and D&I objectives.”

At HR Tech Festival Asia Online 2020, which is happening from September 29 to Oct 1, Collier, alongside Urvi Jobalia, Regional Head of Talent Acquisition, SEA Oceania and India, Ericsson, will be sharing how a partnership between the companies helps to foster leadership, team member adoption and talent management.

Both Collier and Jobalia join the lineup of female innovators and entrepreneurs in the tech industry who will be highlighted in the Women in HR Technology sessions organised and hosted by Jeanne Achille, who is the founder and CEO of The Devon Group, and Conference Chair, Women in HR Tech Summit, US and Singapore.

Achille, who will also be speaking at HR Tech Festival Asia Online 2020, will highlight why HR needs to work closely with leadership to ensure communications alleviate the emotional pressure being experienced by workers, and instead establish passion and purpose.

The sessions will also feature Soh Siew Choo, Managing Director, Group, Head of Consumer Banking and Big Data/AI Technology, DBS Bank; Stacy Harris, CRO, Sapient Insights Group; and Joy Koh, Head of Consulting APAC, Alexander Mann Solutions.

As COVID-19 continues to accelerate the digital transformation for many organisations, the intense requirement for digital and STEM skills is creating new pressures and opportunities for both employers and employees.

Soh, Harris and Koh will, in a panel discussion, highlight why and how organisations can find new ways of skilling, reskilling and upskilling their workers in order to retain valuable talent while supporting diversity.
