It’s become an imperative for any business to make their employees happy – simply because it’s evident that when employees are happy, the business thrives! But what does happiness in the workplace mean? And as an organization, how do we promote happiness? What are the examples of making a happy workforce? Is there even a downside to having a happy workforce
This session will reflect on opportunities and challenges at a transitional point in the year, for leaders and their employees. All companies are facing decisions, employee expectations are changing, and new solutions are being created by HR leaders every day on talent, transformations, and showing resiliency as we move into a new year.

More and more employees are now allowed or even asked to work remotely, or work from home (WFH), whether as a temporary measure in response to the pandemic or a developing "new normal" in the way the employer wants to operate. There are legal issues for the employer associated with remote working. These include, how does an employer ensure the workplace health and safety of employees, are there any legal liabilities for the employer if the employee works remotely overseas and what if an employer can’t find its employee.
Speaker: Hong Tran, Partner, Mayer Brown

Digitalization has been a significant catalyst as to how we define the “modern workplace”. Automation is now an apparent subject that replaces manpower as well as jobs. As HR practitioners we should empower our staff and educate them of ideas that should redefine what work means from a corporate level to an individual level.
Keynote Speaker: Akina Ho, Head of Digital Transformation & Innovation, The Great Eagle Company
As everyone scrambles to adapt to “the new normal” where remote work and digital HR is now the de facto standard for efficient organizations. There are still some that are more nimble than others and would be ready for any new challenges, even in the post-pandemic era. These would be the organizations that will win the future workforce and talent. This is a critical time to take your organization for an HR audit and evaluate your agility, simply adapting reactively is clearly not enough anymore. How can your organization change with the times?
The world and future of work is changing so fast it's making HR leaders' heads spin. But what most lose sight of is that at the very core of transformation are the people that power technology and also become better from it:
With new ways to work, many have asked us the same (or similar) question: Is work culture dead? The simple answer is ‘no’ but things definitely are changing, how do you maintain and sustain your hard-built, awesome work culture in times like this when everything is driven by technology and everyone’s work life is thrown along into quarantine? Surprisingly, technology may offer the key.
The global pandemic has triggered business leaders to rethink the future of work and the need to accelerate digital transformation. Technology has answered the call, by providing timely solutions. Technology is changing the dynamics and mindset of how work is done and what is applicable to today’s new normal.
And as society accepts these concepts of new normality, the HR industry can grasp this opportunity in driving digital transformation initiatives. Nora Cheung, Senior Director of Human Resources, APJ from Automation Anywhere will be presenting ideas and case studies as to how automation empowers our HR professionals to focus on the future of work – by enabling HR to automate repetitive tasks, access data from legacy HR systems, and enhance HR service delivery.

It's already passé to cater to “the new normal”, the most assertive organizations are readying themselves for “the next normal” where changes in work would even further accelerate to accommodate to new thinking, new technologies, and new realities not yet fathomed today. Forward-thinkers join together in this panel to discuss where they’re taking HR to next and how they’ll transform their organization to become future-ready today.
