Human resources have emerged as the most crucial resource for any industry or economy. Over the past decade, India has evolved as a powerhouse of human resources. India being a country of 1.2 billion population, there is diversity in terms of culture, employable population, skilled/unskilled labour, and businesses. The country’s progress largely rests on prudent practices used for managing human resources effectively. The role of human resources has gradually evolved from that of a supporting function to a strategic function for any organization.

Corporate leaders acknowledge the building of a strong foundation of human resources that holds the key to long-term sustainability. Moreover, it helps immensely in retention, performance, employee engagement, talent management, and training and development. These days, top organizations frame all these policies keeping in mind the long-term objectives of the business through strategic HR management.

But today, we have to look beyond the traditional approaches of HR for managing the dual objective of individual employee development and at the same time achieving organizational goals. Sharing of HR Best Practices is one of the most prominent areas that companies need to practice, especially those in the developing countries, to maximize organizational and individual efficiency.

Panel Discussion

Panel Discussion Topic "Human Resources Management in the Age of Millennials".

The essence of the panel discussion is to deliberate on how the role of the human resource function has undergone changes over time and its status in the current age of millennials. Some of the major points to be covered in the panel discussion are:-

  • The millennial generation is now entering employment in vast numbers and will shape the global workforce for years to come. How has HRM changed to attract, retain and engage the best talent among these millennials?
  • What kind of challenges emanate from recruiting employees from different generations? What are the benefits of having a multi-generational team?
  • Workplaces are constantly evolving to keep up with changing technologies and workplace trends. This has resulted in a shift in cultural expectations, which could pose a challenge in terms of smooth transition for older employees
  • Emerging Trends and Technologies in HRM
