The onslaught of COVID-19 has drastically changed the world, and business as usual is no longer a possibility. The massive disruption caused by the pandemic has confronted organisations with deep questions about their business models and the future of work itself.
As organisations explore new ways of working anytime, anywhere they are seeing many benefits including shortening of commuting time, greater working time autonomy, and higher productivity. Internships are a critical part of an individual’s advent into the real-world work environment and the pandemic has forced organizations to pursue ways and means to conduct a fulfilling virtual internship while providing a holistic work experience even in a remote working set-up.
In view of the changing demographics of the work-force, especially the emergence of youth and women in key positions with remote work providing greater flexibility, better overall work–life balance and increased opportunities, it would be interesting to get some fresh insights on what the future of diversity and inclusion is going to look like. As organisations prepare for an uncharted future, they will need employees who are equipped with the skills of communication, critical thinking, empathy, social awareness, problem-solving and a logical bent of mind.
The conference intends to bring together HR communities, Corporate Leaders, Global Thinkers and other stakeholders to discuss and debate strategic people issues and evolve strategies for optimal business outcomes in India. Here is the list of speakers and panelists for the conference:
