The COVID-19 crisis requires agility and radical adaptation of Talent Management practices. Moving talent around reactively is not only costly but also creates anxiety and stress for employees who are already feeling bludgeoned by professional and personal challenges at this challenging time. 

While the crisis has radically disrupted business models and supply chains for many organizations, it has also generated novel business opportunities that must be swiftly captured. As strategic plans are reassessed and rewired in anticipation of a new and uncertain post COVID-19 future, an agile talent management strategy will be required to support recovery and drive future growth. While recognizing the importance of judiciously managing costs, some organizations are making smart talent moves in response to demand spikes and/or strategic initiatives.

Join Dr. Karpe who will outline actions that organizations can take to drive The Agile Talent Agenda and lead the conversation with HR expert practitioners Leslie Hayward and Gurpreet Grewal on the following aspects of Talent Agility during and post COVID-19:

  • Driving Courageous Experiments that Develop Talent
  • Responding with Extreme Agility to Emerging Business Needs
  • Recalibrating Talent Assessment Metrics
  • Accelerating Acquisition of Future-Forward Capabilities
  • Nurturing New and Top Talent with Care
  • Embracing New HR Tech

Who Should Attend: HR and Talent Heads across industry sectors

This webcast is being offered in collaboration with the Hong Kong Institute of Human Resource Management.
