We’ve all wondered the ways to break down the complexities of the HR function for radical innovation. But it isn’t easy without the guidance of visionaries and futurist thinkers, who have time and again, accomplished things that once were believed to be impossible. If you’re wondering what it takes to be successful in designing and developing future-ready strategies for your organisation, People Matters TechHR India might just be the conference for you to gain valuable insights and strategic context from India’s foremost HR leaders. With panel discussions, keynotes, Unconference, masterclasses and fireside chats, this is one event you can’t and shouldn’t miss. More so if you are looking to design for the unconventional.
With HR leaders such as Raju Mistry, Aadesh Goyal, Ashwani Prashara, TK Srirang, Ruhie Pande, Savitha Shivsankar, S Venkatesh, Payal Nambiar, Sukhjit Singh Pasricha, Priyanka Anand, Samik Basu, Vijay Colaco, Indrani Chatterjee, and Naveen Narayanan, among others, there is a lot you can learn to build ‘great places to work’ where employees are eager to show up every day.
Let’s take you through some of our speakers and what they have achieved in their roles as CHROs for global companies, while exploring what drives them in these tumultuous times of uncertainty. With that, let's also understand their ideas around the theme of the conference, ‘art of the possible’:
President and Global Chief People Officer, Raju Mistry is leading and shaping the HR agenda for the global workforce of Cipla, an organisation driven by the purpose, ‘Caring For Life.’ With global experiences for more than quarter of a century, she’s strived for excellence with conscious acts and choices. Through it all, she has ensured that the most valued asset, people, always remain the core of future-ready strategies. For her, the ‘art of the possible’ is in changing the lens to look at each problem as an opportunity to make a difference, find solutions and create something better. In all her roles as an HR leader, she has tried to shape careers, set higher standards of brilliance and laid a rock-solid foundation for business success.
A global business and industry veteran, Aadesh Goyal has held diverse global roles across five continents. As the Global CHRO and Member of the Global Management Committee, he has been at the helm of Tata Communications, a leading provider of new world of communication, that's been known among the ‘best employer' and ‘great place to work’. For him, the ‘art of the possible’ lies in understanding AI to augment human intelligence and business success, which will increasingly depend on machines and human collaboration rather than competition. As an HR leader, he believes that people are the drivers of all that's happening in the company, which is why he has built a culture where employees feel empowered with the right skills and opportunities to grow.
With over 35 years of experience across the entire gamut of HR, Ashwani Prashara, CHRO, Hydrocarbons, Reliance Industries has been driving HR transformational initiatives, change management, HR capability building and industrial relations. In the new business landscape with rapid technological advancements, he believes AI can be leveraged to create win-win situation for both organisations and the workforce. For him, the ‘art of the possible’ is reflected in ordinary people delivering extraordinary results.
The Group CHRO, TK Srirang has been at the forefront of change, leading human resources function and infrastructure management services group at ICICI Bank. His beliefs have always been simple: the presence of human touch is critical to the success of every human capital strategy. For him, the ‘art of the possible’ lies in enabling HR to move away from a transactional role to dabble in a more human-centric role. With over 20 years of experience, he’s brought about a change in industrial relations, mergers, leadership development, performance management and large-scale recruitment and employee engagement processes.
The CHRO at Godrej Capital, Ruhie Pande has a thorough understanding of the business, mapping the ins and outs with prowess. With more than two decades of experience, she is a firm believer that HR must have a seat at the table, tackling strategic decisions that align business and tech. As a lifelong learner, she has always emphasised on the importance of leaders to stay in touch with their workforce to better understand their needs and viewpoints, so as to respond effectively and promptly. For her, the ‘art of the possible’ lies in the key decisions HR needs to make to bridge the gap between what’s acceptable and what’s not when it comes to the use of AI.
