Efforts are being made to make both organisations and people future-ready. The conference will highlight the advancements being made in organisations in the HR perspective, in India, Asia and worldwide. With exponential changes happening around, how we are going to be prepared with the right skills and tools? Indian industry in general and Hyderabad industry in particular will be benefited by the event, being hosted in the city.”
He added, “The conference will help those attending to seek answers to-Where we are? What we are doing now? What we should do in future? How do we handle digitisation? How do we make manufacturing robust using technology?”
On the leadership track that the conference will focus on, he said, leadership agility is gaining prominence as leaders are required to handle multi-generation workforce. NHRDN’s previous conference held in 2012, had attracted 1,000 participants, over 50 Indian speakers and 14
international speakers. Late President of India APJ Abdul Kalam spoke on leadership during the event.
Reddy pointed out that the current conference is structured in such a way that HR professionals can gain from the knowledge sharing that happens at the event. Event enrolment fee is staggered in a way that it is affordable to all, particularly those representing startups and SMEs.
