Managing talent in the future of work will require new competencies and capabilities; but much more importantly an understanding of the critical imperatives that will ensure that organizations of the future can retain and optimize these talents. These imperatives shows that;

  • Talents are looking for an experience, not employment.
  • Talents see themselves as sources of competitive advantage.
  • Talents believe that they have uncommon skill sets that differentiate them from every other individual in the labour market
  • Talent managers will have to improve on their candidate management and talent acquisition experience.
This session aims to elucidate on these imperatives and many more to equip the talent manager with the skills, knowledge and insights to retain and optimize talent in the future of work.


3.15pm - 5.15pm


One of the most misunderstood workplace generations is the Millennial Generation. A generation that is largely results–driven, they work for a purpose and meaning and look out for opportunities to add value wherever they find themselves.
Most of the disruptions and revolutions affecting the workplace now is being spearheaded by this largely misunderstood generation of achievers and courageous fellows. To effectively manage millennials, managers need to understand their needs, drives, expectations, mindset and paradigms.
This session will provide insights into managing this largely misunderstood generation that has begun to shape the future of work.

Traditional productivity tools like diaries, note taking, etc. will no longer deliver optimal value for the average manager let alone the manager of human capital.
With the advent of big data, people analytics, AI and Automation; the HR Manager can be more productive, make more informed decisions and guide Executive Management appropriately in the execution of corporate performance goals and objectives that will yield profitable results
This session will provide insights on how the HR Manager can use big data, people analytics, AI & automation to boost personal and organizational performance and productivity.

CIPMN Leadership

8.00am - 9.30am

Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) have become increasingly important to organizational success and can impact corporate image and reputation, product/service delivery, internal culture and competitive advantage. This is being understood by organizations, some more than others, who are investing time and resources into building and implementing D&I strategies and programs in their current organizations.
Three important areas that are impacted by D&I are organizational brand, image and reputation. These areas, if managed appropriately and influenced by D&I can significantly strengthen the relationship an organization has with its stakeholders such as internal staff, sponsors, consumers, clients, government officials, Board of Directors and community groups.
The aim of this session is to throw more light on how organizations can leverage D&I to enhance their corporate brand, image and reputation.

Mental and behavioral health problems are prevalent among adults, with mood and substance use disorders having peak incidence occurring around 20 to 40 years of age. Given that most adults spend more than 50% of their time at work, the workplace represents an often-neglected setting for focused prevention efforts.
By addressing mental health at the workplace, psychological disorders can be better identified and addressed, and negative sequelae of mental illness can be mitigated. Offering such services as employee assistance programs (EAPs), childcare and financial counseling are important benefits available to some, but not all, employees. Few can argue that more can be done to promote health and well-being at work.
The aim of this session is to equip HR Managers with the tools to manage mental health issues in the workplace.


12.30pm - 2.00pm
