Learnings from 12th National Conference of NHRDN

I was one of the 500 HR professionals and students who attended the 12th National Conference of NHRDN . It was indeed a special conference since the Chennai Chapter of NHRDN won the 'Best chapter award'. Being a member of the Chennai chapter, it felt genuinely good.

Following are few links which would provide you a comprehensive snapshot of this mega HR conference:

Following are some of my key learnings:

1. The foundational theme of Talent Management are leadership, Inclusiveness and management of employee life cycle.

2. Global Integration is the way forward and being Globally Aware is important for achieving Global Integration.

3. High employee expectation gives opportunity to differentiate.

4. Focus of talent development: continous learning, risk taking, response to change, collabaration, problem solving and creativity.

5.'Intelligence is sticky,tricky and leaky'

6.India emerging as an undergraduate factory but it's still low on research competency.

7. Human Capital Management software is growing.

8. New age organisational challenges: Global economy, Increasing focus on innovation and growth, Faster ROI demands, younger workforce, Higher costs.

9.Every word has the power of mantra, every plant is having medicinal value, no human is incompetent.

10. Success recipe for HR transformation: link business strategy, human capital strategy and HR function strategy.

11. Human Capital Analytics is the future.

12. Building platform for healthy Gender diversity: articulate loudly and clearly that they value diversity, acknowledge motherhood.

13. ABC of HR value creation: Alignment, Business focus, Collaboration.

14. Three key questions for prioritising HR actions: What is our vision for human capital?????, Do we look at system value creation?????,What is the weakest link in the chain?????

15. Companies high on CSR activities are attractive to potential employees.

16. Material cost for a manufacturing company is 60% [Hypothetical]and labour cost is 8% [Hypothetical] but much more time is spend on labour issues than on material issues[certainly an area of concern.]

17. Shaping the new HR manager: Guard the values, articulate the values, resolve conflicting values, confront bad behaviour, exemplary in our own behaviour.

18. Five key dimensions demonstrate the increased economic interdependence of a multipolar world: Emerging consumer, war of talent, the flow of capital, the battle for resources and sustainibility, the new map of innovation.

Well!!! I could just share a small portion of my learnings here but I hope my future writings are reflective of my rest of the learnings. I want to thank all the esteemed speakers for the fantastic knowledge sharing.....
