HR Talks

HR’s role in a changing business environment

A breakfast session hosted by FT | IE Business School Corporate Learning Alliance

The global business environment is experiencing unprecedented change, and Human Resource departments must develop new capabilities to remain relevant. In the past, HR transformation mostly focused on making existing services and processes more efficient, effective, and compliant.

But should also consider HR capabilities that do not just support the business strategy, but enable it. HR can do this by developing new staffing models that fit a modern workforce, increasingly based on remote working and global mobility. Enabling the delivery of these capabilities help companies respond more effectively to today’s changing business environment.

The need to adapt quickly has become an essential skill as old jobs are disappearing, new jobs are emerging and remote workplaces are rising. HR professionals need to strategically attract and hire talent, an increasingly difficult task as the new roles lack definition and the market mobility is higher than ever.

The roundtable will be moderated by Malcolm Moore UK News Editor, Financial Times and a leading academic.

In this session we will be covering the following topics among other:

  • How can HR anticipate the “new jobs” and prepare for them in the current context of technology-based transformation?
  • How do leaders have to adapt to the arrival of AI in companies and organisations?
  • How can one develop and retain talent in an environment dominated by technology and AI?
  • Innovation and leadership: does positive leadership favour innovation?

Places at this exclusive event are strictly limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

HR Talks gather small groups of senior executives together to debate leadership challenges, approaches and strategies. Hosted by FT Journalists and members of our global educator network, these sessions encourage conversations among selected audiences in private settings.
