Talent wars... The pandemic… Great resignation... Quiet quitting... The world of work is evolving rapidly, and several trends in recruitment are likely to shape the future of work. In this session, we will talk about a few key trends to watch.
•Technology is changing the way we work, and it is also changing the way we recruit.
•Skills-Based Hiring - With the rise of automation and AI, the skills needed in the workplace are changing. Recruiters are now looking beyond traditional qualifications and are focusing more on skills-based hiring.

Hiring For a Qualified Mismatch

This sounds like a recipe for disaster, right? In fact, it may just be the secret sauce that can help you build a stronger, more dynamic team. The session will provide an in-depth look at the importance of hiring for a qualified mismatch to ensure a successful hire and its benefits, covering:
• The importance for hiring for potential rather than for the current change
• How to have a “pipelining mindset”
• Identifying core competencies and how to detect a candidate’s potential – key “must-haves” vs “nice-to-haves.”
• Just how crucial is the cultural fit??

Dr. Stefan Lange, Senior Vice President Executive Talent Management, Siemens


A Holistic Approach To Learning & Development To Future-Proof Your Organisational Success

Learning & Development has to go beyond its traditional scope and think further toward change management, organizational effectiveness, and development - rather than just individual one. They also need to create new alliances within and outside of the HR department, stay close to people analytics, and anticipate better business needs.
•Identify the opportunities to go beyond L&D's traditional scope.
•Utilize people analytics and business metrics to stay close to needs and measure effectiveness. 
•Develop a strategy across the talent acquisition and talent development department to meet your company's needs and retain talents.
