The first-ever HR Festival Asia brought many new opportunities to learn, network and make an impact on the region’s future. HR tech was central to the event, which offered programs on digital transformation and its impact on the workforce, the rise of AI in HR and how curiosity will define the winners, and an introduction to emerging technologies that are reshaping talent strategies.
A session titled “Climbing the Leadership Ladder” addressed the importance of making meaningful connections with up-and-coming talent. That includes challenging gender norms within HR tech and extending a helping hand.
Panelist Anthea Collier, managing director of Randstad Sourceright in Asia-Pacific, shared an anecdote about a female colleague who was struggling to have her voice heard and get her ideas noticed. “After some investigation, we changed the reporting lines,” said Collier. As a result, the woman has flourished, recently being promoted to a new role.
