The business world of today is grappling with issues such as persistent global uncertainty, rapid pace of business change, a tremendous pressure to perform while optimizing costs, talent scarcity and skill mismatches, an open talent economy, the emergence of new business models, the generational shift in work cultures and the changing paradigms of good leadership. In today’s competitive landscape, merger integrations and divestitures are commonplace. Shared services and outsourcing transitions are resulting in new accountabilities and governance structures. The digital revolution and technological change has become all-pervasive, posing a challenge for organizations to unlearn legacy systems and become future ready.

In this scenario, the HR function is being called upon to enable profound transformation in an organization and deliver significant and sustained value to their business colleagues in helping them to stay ahead of the business challenges of today.

There are numerous challenges that are being faced by HR functionaries in this context. Some of the top questions being asked by HR leaders are:

  • How do I estimate the ROI of HR initiatives and link it to business performance in the continuing cyclicality?
  • Where do I find talent for critical roles and build predictive capabilities to mitigate business risks through the talent agenda?
  • How will I differently manage and engage an increasingly multi-generational workforce?
  • How will I ensure leadership continuity and build it at all levels?
  • How do I make digital HR a DNA of my organization?
  • Are we conscious of the HR Risks that lie ahead and what are the mitigational steps?

In this contextis that is it the responsibility of the HR function alone to address these challenges or does it require a much larger leadership collaboration?

The CII National HR Conclave 2017 is set in the context and is designed to provide a platform to share perspectives of not only by the HR fraternity but also by business heads and functionaries. Designed to have open audience interactions, coupled with the state-of-the-art Design Thinking sessions, the Conclave is expected to challenge assumptions, discuss the latest insights and approaches and draw out unique and “out of the box” answers to some of the top of the mind HR and people issues that are plaguing the leaders of today.
