Topic: Rethinking Talent Management to build a high-performance remote workforce

By Speaker: Chaitanya Peddi

Most large enterprises agree that the challenges with effective performance management processes are that they are not transparent, too subjective and just don't provide enough value add to the employees. Most large enterprises agree that the challenges with effective performance management processes are that they are not transparent, too subjective and just don't provide enough value add to the employees. Organisations are starting to adopt the digital route and are looking for solutions that enable them to perform the three major performance management activities - Goal management, multi-source feedback and performance evaluation.


But, as work goes remote, it adds another layer of challenges. Employees are wondering how they will be evaluated given the new work from home scenario. Appraisals, review cycles and bonuses will have to assume new avatars. So, how can businesses leverage the power of digitizing their performance management to sail through the present and gear up for the future? 


Talking points: 

  • CHRO’s perspective on ways in which organisations can re-strategize their talent management
  • Challenges with performance management as teams go remote
  • The need for digitalization of performance management & its impact
  • Leading the change and driving adoption for digital performance management:- the dos, don'ts and best practices
  • How employees view this shift in culture and pointers to overcome their challenges

Topic: Employee Experience in the new Normal

By Speaker: Alvin Goh

This new era of work has completely altered the employee experience. Organisations must ensure that employee needs are looked into and taken care of without compromising their job performance as deliverables are still needed to meet business objectives. How do we ensure continuity and consistency in performance despite the change of working norm?


Key Learning Points:

  • Holistic view of Employee Experience with Altruism, Compassion and Empathy
  • Responding to employee needs
  • Building trust in the organisation
  • Workforce effectiveness and well-being
