CEOs are leaning on CHROs more than ever to ensure their workforces feel supported as their businesses continue with the widespread adoption of hybrid work models. CHROs must take this opportunity now to evolve their businesses into a human-centric work design. The transformation necessary for L&D in this hybrid environment is particularly poignant - not only is there a rising demand for new skills, but according to Gartner research the average number of skills needed for a role is increasing by 6.3% annually. For leaders, there is less visibility into employee work patterns making it challenging to accurately assess performance, whilst employees want more empathy from their managers.

In this interactive conversation, among peers, CHROs will discuss their role in evolving skill and competency requirements to match the new world of hybrid work.

Topic 1: Shifting talent and skills

  • What steps are you taking to better understand immediate skill needs?
  • How are you forecasting future skill needs?
  • How are you reinventing traditional approaches to learning necessary for dynamic skilling?

Topic 2: Leading in a hybrid world

  • What leadership skills and competencies have you identified as being vital for the future success of your business?
  • How are you providing training and support to leaders to navigate tough conversations and develop empathy?
  • How are you equipping leaders in ways that develop employees to drive sustainable performance?

6:45pm - 7:15pm  Networking Break

7:15pm - 8:30pm  Summary Discussion & Dinner
