How will technology alter the future of Human Capital?

Technology has revolutionised the way we access information, and thereby the way we do business. The rapid rise of artificial intelligence and algorithms is already demonstrating many benefits in how we live and work, but there are also potential drawbacks which organisations and policy makers need to consider and take heed of.

The media is full of stories about jobs being taken by robots, while the more measured acknowledge that while jobs will be lost, many more will be redefined. Regardless of the industry, every company can now be digital — and has the potential to be global. An abundance of information makes it possible for organisations to segment and personalise products and services. It also enables companies to quickly move into other new spaces of innovation. These changes will have a deep impact on the workplace. The way workforces are structured and organised will have to change fundamentally and companies will need to rethink the way they hire, engage, develop, reward and lead their workforces.

In view of this, on November 20, 2018, The Human Capital Leadership Institute (HCLI), the leadership development arm of Temasek Management Services, is hosting one of its premier events, the Asian Human Capital & Leadership Symposium. The two-day event, which will be held at the Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre, is for champions of organisational transformation and people development in Asia and one of the main themes of the symposium will be the 'Future of Human Capital and Technology'. The Symposium will involve discussions around how leadership is different in the current digital (vs. pre-digital) age, what it takes for leaders to be successful in a time of digital disruption and how organisations select, train and re-evaluate Human Capital as a key strategic thrust.

The event combines world-class thought leadership with senior peer-to-peer sharing in an innovative and engaging format, providing the opportunity to network and shape the conversation on human capital challenges and strategies in Asia.
