  • HR Leaders Continue to Learn New Solutions at the ASEAN HR Summit
  • The way to move forward is by adapting the ever-changing technologies and learning the innovations being created every day.

    At the 2nd ASEAN HR Summit held last September 12 and 13, over 400 delegates, Human Resources (HR) professionals, and executives got to listen from industry leaders regarding innovation and technology.

    Panel discussions tackled on a variety of topics and issues

    The Bonifacio Hall of the Shangri-La at the Fort became the venue for eye-opening dialogues, topics, and panel discussions on how the role of HR can embrace change. These include digital transformation and automation to better support companies and its human capital.

    The summit started with a Masterclass Workshop on its first day led by Professional Coach and Director of PowerinU Training and Coaching Philippines Penny Bongato and President and CEO of Hungry Workhorse Consulting Reynaldo Lugtu.

    The summit included thought-provoking masterclass, engaging workshops, and fun activities

    Meanwhile, the second day was met with curated keynotes and forums by HR directors, Regional Talent Acquisition, HR Tech Executives, and industry thought leaders to encourage and shake up the HR in Asia and discuss the gaps in the current industry, identify challenges in transformation, and transform their businesses.

    In her keynote speech, Vice President of Human Resource at Unilever Philippines Amrita Padda spoke about how the change and industry transformation will only move faster from here—that if there are any changes to be made internally, the best time is now.

    Keynote speaker Amrita Padda gets the audience asking the question, what can the HR do to learn, adapt, and transform?

    Continuous adaptation and growth is the key to achieving the Future of HR, as Senior Vice President of Human Resources of QBE Insurance Donna Grande pointed out in her speech on Drive and Diversity in Digital Leadership.

    She iterated that the graduates of 2030 will likely be working in jobs that don’t even exist yet.

    With over 20 years of experience in Human Resource Development, Donna Grande urges the delegates to change now.

    She also illustrated just how different the work skills will be in 2030 from 2019. The work skills today are thinking skills—innovative and creative, while in the Future of HR, the skills that count are the learning skills—adaptive and flexible. This further strengthens the need for a transformation of HR in Asia, starting with the delegates of the event.

    Panel discussions gave the delegates a holistic view of the challenges that face transformation in HR. One of the solutions that a panel agreed upon was how every company employee—including top management—must update and utilize the features of services such as LinkedIn, Grab for Business, and Salarium.

    The delegates and guests comprised of HR directors, managers, executives, VPs, Heads, and consultants

    Companies offer businesses innovative solutions, support, and services that the later can use to get a boost and get ahead.

    As such, the ASEAN HR Summit had booths at the lobby to introduce emerging companies and services to the delegates.

    Businesses set to help organizations were invited to set up booths at the event venue to spark the interest of the delegates

    As the vein of the organization, Human Resources controls the human capital and the employees’ overall experience. Above analyzing benefits, wages, and salaries, the HR also help build a strong employer-employee relationship. With the new technologies and demands of the market, they must be one of the first to adapt.

    With the ASEAN HR Summit’s success of its 2nd year, organizations can look forward to the Future of HR in Asia with high hopes and a better understanding of the problems, challenges, and the changes to be made especially with the crucial role that the Human Resources hold.
