Referring to the all-round deleterious impact of COVID-19 pandemic, he said, “Volatility is killing dreams and everyone is suffering. Uncertainty is certain and complexity is not going to be resolved soon. Corporate world and India is in the cusp of Digital Transformation. Ambiguity is quite obvious. We are living in a VUCA world and how we face it, is the crux of the matter.”
Then, the knowledgeable speaker outlined the emerging new trends in the HR practices in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and deliberated at length on how they were affecting each of the so-called pillars of HR, namely Talent Acquisition, Capability Building, Talent Management & Performance, Diversification & Inclusion, Organization Development, Employee Relations (Engagement), Analytics & MIS, and Rewards & Recognition.
Next, Mr. Jaswanth Sharanarthy opened the session for questions from the participants. Several questions were put up by the students, most of which were related to topic of the day, viz., “UPSKILLING TALENT (COMPETENCY MAPPING & EFFECTIVENESS)”.
