The Human Resources department is involved in and affects the operation and execution of all the other business functions. Therefore, properly aligning the HR strategy with the organization's business strategy is critical to achieving the organization's mission. Few departments have a better bird’s-eye view of the entire organization than human resources. HR professionals can see both why a strategy exists and how it’s developed and implemented. Yet, too often, HR departments don’t have a seat at the strategy table. 

Our panel will take a look at how HR can help shape business strategy and bring it to life and provide a solid case on why and how HR can get involved in designing, executing and evaluating corporate strategy.

The impact of the COVID-19 outbreak was unprecedented and felt around the globe. In addition to the threats caused to public health, livelihoods, and social structures, the pandemic also heavily affected labor markets, economics, and enterprises, leading to widespread business disruptions. These challenges resulted in solutions to ensure work continuity that will impact HR management and the way of working beyond the pandemic. Remote and hybrid workplaces are the new normal; and flexibility, well-being and work/life integration are here to stay.  As the world is gradually healing from the most devastating effects of COVID, it is time for HR leaders to redirect their focus toward recovery and ensure their companies are prepared to deal with changing requirements for human capital management. 

In this session, our panel will discuss post-pandemic trends and technologies disrupting the present and shaping the future of HR.
