The workplace transformation, we are certain, will be an amalgamation of complex, changing and competing forces. Some of these forces may be certain but the speed at which some can unfold may be hard to predict. A McKinsey survey has found that the post-pandemic era has speeded the adoption of digital technologies by several years & many of these changes could be there for the long haul. Another interesting find by PWC talks about how 60% surveyed across India, UK, US, China & Germany think ‘few people will have stable, long-term employment in the future’. With the world and organizations changing rapidly than ever, let’s hear from our Keynote speaker on areas such as the changing dynamics of work, culture, leadership in this post-pandemic era or the hybrid world.
Once in a generation, Leaders may have the opportunity to redesign work the way we can. Our leaders are putting their Head, Heart & Soul into designing Hybrid models, while employees are still re-evaluating their relationship with work, what will the end result look like ?A recent report by McKinsey shows that Majority of the Workforce (62%) pre-pandemic preferred Fully On Site work model, whereas Majority of the Workforce (52%) post-pandemic prefer Hybrid work model. The report also highlights the fact that a hybrid model is more complicated than a fully remote one and at scale, using it will be an unprecedented event in which all kinds of norms will be put to the test. Join us for a session on designing the next Hybrid Operating Model, Empathizing with the Workforce, Embracing the test of agility and learning culture & more!
Call it an aftermath of a widespread pandemic or an opportunity to look at the way Talent is attracted, developed and retained. Reskilling of Talent and shift towards GIG culture are the two key aspects that would feature into the vision of every organization. Welcome to the most demanding ‘Reskilling phase’ of the century! Whether it is due to demographic shifts or gradually increasing demand along with decreasing supply of talent; talent management practices through reskilling have evolved over the years to cater to organization-specific trends. The World Economic Forum estimates that over half of all employees (54%) will require ‘significant’ reskilling by 2022. As demand for new capabilities gathers pace, reskilling and upskilling comes to the rescue of the organizations. It lets them remain in the battlefield by being competitive. Organizations such as Airbnb, Grofers, Ola cabs and likes have meaning fully implemented agile Talent management techniques through reskilling and made the most of GIG culture. Owing to On-demand platforms based on the digital economy and ease of work based on convenience, in the economy created a new labor force characterized by independent and contractual labor and thus the GIG culture popped up in the last few decades, and this trend accelerated during the 2020 economic crisis. Join the session to find out if all of this is at its peak, can organizations even imagine staying silent when it comes to reskilling of talent and its GIG culture!

At a time when we bring so much of ourselves to work, mental health is still something we don’t like talking about at the office. What if we objectively create a work environment where employees feel comfortable expressing mental health conditions – Would it improve the workplace experience? Reduce absenteeism and increase productivity? An article from Harvard business review stated that nearly 200 million workdays are lost due to mental health conditions each year ($16.8 billion in employee productivity) yet, almost 60% of employees have never spoken to anyone at work about their mental health status. The study also found that less than half of the respondents felt that mental health was prioritized at their organization – What can we do more to change this around? Find out more in the session!

I have been a part of HR Showcase since 2016 and each year the NHRD team surprises me with their ability to pull off such a great event . It not only encompasses a showcase of best practices, but also the knowledge sessions provide a wealth of knowledge. This year too I enjoyed the 2 days of learning. I look forward to the 11th HR Showcase and wish the NHRD team All the best!!!
Bosch was pleased to take part in NHRD's HR Showcase- 2019, which was held in Bengaluru last year. Being in the two rounds of the competition was both challenging and exciting, and we finally won in the "CSR Best Practice" category for our flagship skill development program: BRIDGE. The most obvious advantage of participating in the HR Showcase, besides its vivacity and vibrancy, is the prospect to leverage NHRD's wide network of high quality professionals for potential CSR partnerships. And the team at NHRD Bengaluru is also very proactive, thorough and supportive. As this event goes virtual this year, we look forward to an even more interesting NHRD HR Showcase-2020!
