Transforming HR from a Cost Centre to a Strategic Business Partner in
the Era of Talent Intelligence

In a commercially driven environment like Hong Kong, increasing revenue and profits is the key priority for executives. As a result, the Human Resources function is too often incorrectly seen as a cost to businesses, instead of a strategic partner that contributes towards profitability.

Join us, for an afternoon exploring topics on how HR leadership can move from functional excellence to contributing commercial value-add, and become a trusted advisor in accelerating innovation, and driving profitability. We will discuss the age of Big Data, Talent Intelligence, and sharing of strategic insights, on how changes in technology and talent market transform HR  to play an even more central strategic business role.
