Event: Emerging HR For Evolving SMEs

  • When: Wednesday, 16th February 2022, 3 PM - 4 PM IST
  • Who should attend: HR Heads, Compensation Heads, Senior HR Professionals and Managers


India has approximately 6.3 crore MSMEs – a major contributor to the social and economic development of the country. Furthermore, MSMEs have the potential to also serve as a key employment generator for India, creating thousands of opportunities for the young workforce. The key challenge, however, is whether MSMEs are equipped to manage talent.


From hiring and onboarding, to upskilling and retention, MSMEs have an array of concerns to deal with in order to create a good employee experience and retain top talent. Given the shifting priorities of work and an ongoing shortage of workers in most sectors, MSMEs now have to up their game, examine the way they approach talent decisions, and accelerate the adoption of tools and processes that give them a competitive edge.


Evolving MSMEs need a newer and stronger force of HR teams and processes. 


To discuss the emerging role of HR in SMEs and explore how some organisations are building capabilities within the HR team to scale and sustain business impact, People Matters, in partnership with Keka, brings to you a special LinkedIn Live. 


Hear from SME leaders who have already started their change journey. 


In this LinkedIn Live, we discuss:


  1. How are customer and employee expectations changing and challenging existing business and working models for SMEs?
  2. As businesses pivot to digital ways of working and doing business, how is the role of HR in SMEs changing? 
  3. What skills and support do the HR leaders need to fuel organisation-wide change and propel businesses and the workforce towards new avenues of growth?
  4. How can SMEs build on their intuitive and compact business models to compete with large enterprises and win the war for talent?
