It was only a few months ago in 2022, when we had invited leaders from across the globe to Asia’s largest HR and WorkTech conference, People Matters TechHR India to rethink what’s possible as we stepped into the new world of work. Around the AI revolution with the wide adoption of technologies, such as 5G, blockchain, DAO, crypto, AR and VR, we, as a community, wanted to change the narrative and rewrite the future.
With leaders and game changers like Kirthiga Reddy, who advised us to be bold in our thinking as we use technology and AI for good, to Rick Hammell, who spoke about the transformational opportunity to hire the best talent from anywhere in the world, or even Mark Stelzner, who believes that as everything changes, you need to change and be fluid to be able to drive outcomes, it was learnings like these that helped change perspectives to what we can achieve, going forward.
While 2022 was a year when we looked at 'what was possible', with 2023, we are gearing up to understand the 'art of the possible' where we design for the unconventional times with unconventional thinking. With the evolving world of work where debates rage on the benefits of WFH, work-life balance vs work-life integration, the culture of listening, how to survive in the layoff minefield, diversity in leadership, and what do employees want, organisations need to look beyond right and wrong.
‘The art of the possible’ at People Matters TechHR India looks at what we can achieve as opposed to what we want. As leaders experience the pressures of today, there is a need to craft meaningful journeys, touchpoints, solutions and platforms to make work work.
Though all of us are hoping for exponential growth in workplaces, focusing solely on growth can make one lose sense of the journey or why you began it all in the first place. As Lucky Ali shared during a fireside chat at TechHR India 22, ‘A journey is a work in progress; you can at no point in time say that you have reached’.
So, be brave and bold as you join us on August 3 and 4 at Leela Ambience, Gurugram where we architect an inclusive space that breaks away from the old patterns of thinking to welcome the new. With our agenda as a roadmap to help you thrive in these unconventional times, there’s so much to learn from our speakers such as Dave Ulrich, Shashi Tharoor, Vineet Nayyar, Brian Sommer and Shraddhanjali Rao, among others who have made it possible.
