[Full] Concurrent Session C2: Engaging Employees in the Renewed Workplace
ENGLISH
Presentation

While COVID-19 has led to unprecedented people challenges, it has also stimulated organisations and HR leaders to proactively explore what they should do differently point forward to engage employees in the renewed workplace. What employees want from work has amplified opportunities for companies, while on the other hand there are positive and negative hardwired preconceptions that need to be managed.   In this session, Sunny will share how McDonald’s has been revisiting its approaches to reward, recognise, and energise employees across the globe over the past 18 months. The company is committed to elevating employee experience in a holistic way, which focuses on culture alignment, diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), and community involvement.

Concurrent Session C4: The Age of Entitlement: Is It Really Difficult to Manage Millennials?
ENGLISH
Presentation

Millennials are often seen by managers as having a higher level of psychological entitlement than employees of older generations. In this presentation, Dr. Huang will present three ongoing scientific research projects, which aim to address whether and why it is so challenging to manage millennials in China and other countries. In the first project, Dr. Huang’s team demonstrated that younger employees in China are not necessarily more entitled than older employees. In the second project, the team showed that Millennials shared more similarities with employees of older generations than expected. In the third project, the team discovered that managers of Millennials are a major reason for Millennials’ entitlement.

Key Takeaways

  1. Biased perceptions of Millennials exist.
  2. The directive managerial approach may help drive Millennials to perform, at least under certain circumstances.
  3. Managers of Millennials themselves should manage themselves well in the first place.

Concurrent Session D1: Making Changes to Engage Change Makers
ENGLISH
Presentation

How would you rate your employee volunteer programme? Do you have a volunteer policy where your employees can, or are expected to, donate their time? What about their money, their voice to advocate for change, and their skills? Have you integrated pro bono services into your non-profit support? Do you have a volunteer month? How do you, your employees and c-suite executives engage with your non-profit partners?

This interactive dialogue will explore the types of meaningful changes you and your organisation can make, to truly demonstrate to the next generation of leaders that you are committed to the non-profits you partner with and the societal issues they are addressing. Find out how we can create a purpose-driven mix of c-suite, employee, and customer engagement that can lead to increased and impactful community engagement. Come to this session ready to share what progress you are making and what challenges you have faced. Learn from your peers on ‘What Works Well’ for them, and together let’s work out what your ‘Even Better If’ action could be and what changes you can make to your employee volunteer programme today, to engage the change makers of tomorrow.

Concurrent Session D3: The Role of HR in Building an Inclusive Workplace
ENGLISH
Presentation

The role of HR in building an inclusive workplace can be hard to define and may seem overwhelming as there can be many conflicting priorities. Nikki Davies will run an interactive session where you can analyse your organisation’s approach to inclusion, and consider the HR strategies that your company can prioritise to build an effective and inclusive workplace. A step-by-step approach will be used to consider where you are on your inclusion journey, and examine the best practices and strategies that you can consider implementing.  

  1. Defining inclusion: how do you define this?
  2. Identifying priorities for building inclusion: what are your priorities?
  3. Inclusion best practices: which do you practice in your organisation? Which might you adopt?
  4. Key inclusion strategies to consider: which do you have in place? Do any of these support your priorities?

[Full] Concurrent Session D4: Cross-Gen HR Transformation
ENGLISH
Presentation

A catchword to many organisations in a fast changing business environment, transformation nowadays has a much broader scope, very often with multiple priorities. While a people-centric strategy is crucial in building a future-ready organisation, the role of HR is also evolving in a way that facilitates the complete cycle from initialising the concept, to defining the goals and approach, to mapping talents and creating long-term engagement. Leveraging technological advancement, HR is well positioned to act as the catalyst for a sustainable transformation. During this session, Chiu will share his insights on the topic based on the best practices from the Jardine Engineering Corporation.

Key Takeaways

  • Setting the right business transformation focus to align with corporate strategy
  • Developing a holistic approach that brings mindset and behavioural change
  • Defining common goals for staff at different levels to enhance commitment and engagement by delivering a significant business impact

Concurrent Session D5: Why HXM (Human Experience Management) matters for HR and Talent Teams
ENGLISH
Presentation

While creating an environment where people feel safe, engaged, and productive requires an intentional focus on fostering a positive employee experience, we know that Human Capital Management technology falls short of what businesses need to compete today. That is why HR is evolving to human experience management, or HXM. As the focus of HR shifts from simply supporting HR-driven processes to delivering experiences around what employees need to do and be their best, HXM provides the mindset and the tools needed to deliver the results businesses need to survive and thrive.

The time is now

Understanding and improving the employee experience is critical for companies operating in a highly competitive, and sometimes unpredictable, global economy. Companies that focus on employee experience succeed in attracting the best talent, have lower staff turnover rates, and realise higher productivity. To be clear, the goal of providing a strong employee experience isn’t only to make your people feel better. It is to enable them to do their best work — to make them want to come to work. And because the employee experience has become so important, including to prospective candidates, organisations can’t afford to ignore it.
