National HR Conference 2018
National HR Conference 2018

06 - 07 June, BMICH COLOMBO

Welcome to NHRC 2018.

Transformation of HR in the Digital World

We live in a brave new world, a ‘Digital World’ that is continuously evolving and disrupting our lifestyles, beliefs and our behaviour. The proliferation of digital technologies has radically changed our lives, our communities and our workplaces reshaping the world of work in the process, dramatically changing the way we manage, perform and interact within organisations.

As the evolving technology is assuming an increasingly greater role in the way businesses are structured and managed, HR specialists are challenged to seek and adapt into the constantly shifting organisational context that surrounds them by adopting digital concepts, platforms, technologies and management styles that can deliver sustainable results.

This year’s conference theme, ‘Transformation of HR in the Digital World’ endeavours to re-orient the HR community by enlightening them on the changing HR landscape that is influenced by digitisation, made further complex by the cultural and generational workforce diversity, war for talent and customer demands.

The National HR Conference 2018 aims at transforming the mindset of the HR practitioners, enabling them to excel in an agile, digitally-empowered operating environment and embrace the brave new ‘Digital World’ whilst staying vigilant and receptive to the workplace challenges of tomorrow.
