2019 Singapore HR Leadership Summit

Novotel, Clarke Quay, Singapore

22nd & 23rd January


In times of change and transformation, HR leadership is critical at the forefront of a business to proactively shape forward-thinking strategies to drive progress and innovation in the new world of work. In order to remain globally competitive and relevant, HR leaders play a critical role as they lead their organisations to reimagine the way they work and learn, optimise technology, build a diverse workforce, engage and empower employees, and redesign jobs to meet future needs.

The conference program welcomes open dialogues on preparing and enabling your organisations and people to adapt to evolving realities. We are inviting Singapore’s most innovative and progressive organisations to share their insights into topics such as preparing for the coming wave of workforce transformation; enhancing the employee experience; developing a customer-centric culture; the way AI and automation will impact your business and workforce; facilitating business conversations and gaining executive support; building cross border HR projects; and developing next generation leaders.
