Managing your talents in a VUCA world

Transform your business, thrive and succeed in the era of robots
It's the era of robots. It's also the era of exits. Many business leaders can describe today as The Dawn of the New Dark Age.

Truth be told, only those companies that stand out as innovators are likely to succeed in a slow-growth environment. To capitalize on pockets of growth, businesses need to be bold, entrepreneurial and willing to take risks on new products and services.

HR Technology Congress Asia 2016 will tackle how companies must adapt their operations to a new growth cycle — one that requires highly disciplined and rigorous strategic planning, execution and learning, all supported and enhanced by technology.

Discover how business leaders will re-engage and refocus HR and get their companies thrive in the era of robots at HR Technology Congress Asia 2016 by emailing!
