HR Conclave on “Future of Work”
Our Institute in association with HR Shapers organised an HR Conclave on Future of Work on 14th March 2020. HR Shapers is an HR Networking group having its presence across the Globe and PAN India (50 locations, 25 countries and 5 regions). This conclave aimed at sharing of insights, expertise and experience by HR Leaders and the intended audience were HR Practitioners from the industry, our students, and faculty members. The main theme of the Conclave was “Future of Work”, which is about how the world of work is changing and shall continue to change majorly due to globalization, demographic changes, artificial intelligence, automation, and robotics. Such a changing work environment will result in the loss of some jobs while many others will be created, but almost all jobs will change. The Future of Work offers unparalleled opportunities, but also significant challenges. It is crucial that HR professionals help the employers and employees as well as the society at large to manage such transition with the least possible disruption, while maximizing the potential benefits. The main objective of organizing this Conclave was to help the Institute in two ways: 1. To increase the visibility of our Institute among corporations from the placement point of view as the intended audience was majorly working HR personnel from the industry 2. To attract prospective students for the part-time Executive MBA programs we offer i.e., MMM, MFM and MHRDM The Conclave was a massive success and attracted sponsors from the industry. Tata Teleservices Limited, Samrat Catering Services, Impact Enterprises, Prasad Bakery and Burgundy Box offered sponsorship for the event in cash and kind.
