Synopsis:There is a large and growing range of HR Technology solutions available across the Asia market, from core HR management systems through to a vast array of talent tech.
With government support supporting the adoption of these technologies to drive up productivity and an ever-increasing need for businesses to have effective software while they run remotely through the Covid-19 pandemic, there has never been a better time to review the HR tools available in the market to ensure you have the right selection in place for your business.
Our panel of experts will discuss which are the most needed tools for businesses of today and the questions to ask yourself to identify which of those available in the market would best suit your business and help to support you through this time.
The COVID-19 pandemic is having a hugely disruptive impact on businesses throughout the world. All major economic indicators are showing a downturn, and companies are struggling to maintain essential services. It is arguably the gravest situation we have encountered as a species since the Second World War.
In a crisis, people need effective leadership. This presents a major opportunity for HR professionals; in the context of the pandemic, who else is better placed to show leadership and help their business and employees to steer the most effective path through these turbulent waters? But experience shows that often the HR team is not equipped to play a leading role in troubled times, and it is often left to other functions. Why is that?
At this first HR Leaders Roundtable seminar, run jointly by Indorse and PeopleStrong, we will explore useful tools we deploy during these disruptive times to increase our teams’ productivity, motivation, and feeling of belonging.
The Webinar will be facilitated by Adrian Tan a seasoned practitioner and one of the leading experts in the HR Tech arena in Singapore and South East Asia. During the Webinar we will explore:
What are the main problems facing businesses due to the COVID-19 pandemic?
What kind of solutions are businesses putting in place to mitigate these?
What can the HR function do to provide effective leadership at this time?
What tools can we deploy to steer productivity and motivation while our teams work from home?
How can businesses ensure effective communication and raise levels of engagement?
This will be an opportunity both to learn some useful tips from the facilitator but also to learn from peers in other companies and industries, share experience and join a growing network.
With the COVID-19 situation still hanging in the air, many companies that could implement some form of remote work have done so. But for many people, working from home can be extremely challenging. For some, you may not have a work table at home. Work means at your dining table or even on your bed. For others, you may be like me with kids at home and that can be distracting. Whichever your situation is, there are ways to make it work. But it calls for changes to how you work.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going, & the same applies to organisations & employees alike. In this age of pay cuts and “lean” everything, employers need to remember that employees are their biggest contributing factor for success or failure in the drive to do more with less.
“It’s the employees who are dealing directly with customers and wrestling with business challenges who are best equipped to generate the next game-changing concept,” say the authors of “Optimizing Human Capital Assets in Tough Times.” “Recognition can be an important catalyst to motivates employees.
