The Economist Corporate Network is launching a special series of exclusive, interactive online meetings entitled 'Global Round Table' for senior business executives in the same job functions or industries. We are leveraging our networks across nine cities from Johannesburg to Tokyo to allow members to share their knowledge and experience with their peers in other countries.
For this round we are inviting Human Resources Directors from leading multinational and local companies in Asia, Middle East and Africa to discuss how their jobs and their priorities have changed during the covid-19 pandemic.
Some of the questions we will aim to address include:
- How the priorities for people development changed in your company following the onset of the pandemic?
- What have been the most challenging for you in managing your workforce remotely and how are you preparing and implementing 'back-to-the-office'?
- Do you see your role in the organisation changing post-covid and becoming more/less important?
- Will the relationship between management and the employees change altogether after this crisis?
Join us for a discussion on September 17 at 16:00-17:00 SG/HK time (17:00-18:00 TK/SK time, 12:00-13:00 UAE time, 10:00-11:00 SA time). We encourage all participants to join with their audio and video turned on in order to facilitate an engaging and stimulating discussion.
