Whilst leading the charge on reimagining work in a post pandemic world with strategy and empathy, the role of the CHRO is continuing to evolve.

CEOs are increasingly recognising the value of talent to deliver business outcomes and expect HR leaders to transform traditional HR practices to build organisational resilience and drive value and gain competitive advantage.

Stepping beyond the traditional HR functional management, CHROs are now leading the business through enterprise change, talent development and corporate culture.

Organised by HRM Asia, CHRO Online Series 2021 brings together Asia’s most prominent and experienced HR leaders to meet and discuss the most critical initiatives and issues impacting CHROs as they build their future organisation.

Kicking off the series is CHRO Indonesia, which is taking place on Thursday, October 28, where Jason Averbook, Global Keynote Speaker, and CEO & Founder of Leapgen, will be making a keynote presentation titled, Being Digital in The Now of Work.

While discussing how leaders can stop implementing technology and start deploying human capabilities, Averbook will also highlight how the workplace experience can be designed with people at the centre.

He will also serve as moderator for a panel discussion titled, Adapting to The Work and The Workforce of Tomorrow – How HR Is Taking the Lead in Shaping the Future of Work?

Joined by Pambudi Sunarsihanto, HR Director, Bluebird Group Indonesia and Sandra Kokasih, Human Capital Managing Director, Sinar Mas Land, the panel will examine why a shift to human-centric leadership is critical for the future of work.

They will also highlight the importance of embracing change in the evolving role of HR and provide tips on how HR can ensure that their organisation is spot-on with their culture that will last them through the rapidly changing world of work.

Also joining CHRO Indonesia is Dr Bob Aubrey, Founder of the ASEAN Human Development Organisation, who will moderate a session titled, The CHRO of the Future: Time to Look at HR Through a New Lens.

Joined by Rudy Manik, Chief Human Resources Officer, FWD Life and Lelin Eprianto, Senior Vice President, Human Capital Management, PT Pertamina (Persero), the session will explain why CHROs need to be more involved in human capital strategy and the overall business, the deployment of artificial intelligence (AI) and automation for the workforce, and how HR’s influence on organisational decision-making can be further expanded and cemented.
