Inspiration To Execution: Visionaries extract the roadmap to speed, resilience & sustainability at People Matters TechHRIN

As the world order gets more volatile and dynamic, leadership teams can no longer rest with planning just for tomorrow; strategies need to be designed to remain ahead of the curve, and survive the next ebb, which could strike anytime. Building organisations that can withstand these shaky grounds, and instilling adaptability in the workforce requires companies to act with speed and develop resilience. And at the same time, keep sustainability at the heart of all business practices. Taking cue from Buddhism, the current times call for inspired action — making the impossible possible.

So, this year, at People Matters TechHR India, we have leaders and visionaries from across the industry spectrum share their insights on ‘inspiration to execution’ to tide over the new normal, which as one of the speakers at the conference this year puts it, the ‘Never Normal’. 

In its eleventh edition, the conference will be brimming with excitement as HR industry veterans take you through how companies globally are balancing the changed work scenario of office and remote environment, encouraging and nurturing talent to remain relevant, enhancing value creation for all, keeping up with the break-neck speed at which Gen AI is evolving, and implementing human and tech innovations to drive efficiency.

The two-day conference, on August 1 and 2 will see over 2500 HR, talent and business leaders, over 100 HR tech innovators, 150 thought leaders and 30 startups converge at The Leela Ambience, Gurugram. Here’s the spectacular line-up of speakers, who we promise will inspire change for your business:
