In partnership with   

Our eminent panel of speakers


If there is one thing the Pandemic has taught us, it is that change happens in an instant. As we gear up for a post pandemic reality, we explore trends that have been accelerated in the pandemic and gaps in our people practices that still need to be filled.


To build the new future of work, HR leaders need to reimagine the fundamentals of the future organization, helping build an organization that is agile, digital yet human; all at the same time fueling their own transformation.


The key question then for HR Leaders is: How do we transform while supporting the organizational transformation?


We at Mercer believe, no matter where you are on your Transformation journey as the HR function, there are actions you can take now to fuel your transformation.
