Moreover, state-of-the-art technology applications are transforming traditional HR into HR 4.0. Having said this, in this session we shall learn from the HR leaders on how they are ensuring that businesses are able to successfully adopt and deploy new technologies—by supporting employees through adaptation and transition as their roles, tasks and skills change, and by integrating new worker and societal expectations to build attractive and inclusive workplaces.
An employee performs best only when he/she enjoys a good work -life balance. Organisations, today are increasingly aware of the fine line between work and life.
