The Congress will begin in:


Welcome to a Truly "Glocal" Experience


I am pleased to pen my ponderings on this prestigious people event in bring the global community to our beautiful island.  Despite the doom of a devastating pandemic, we see the boom of people factor in corporates with a deeper realization of the value of human wellbeing. With an exotic theme of “Exalting People Professionals Amidst a Planetary Pandemic: Explore, Expand and Excel”, we will deliberate on digitalization, disruption, diversity, and diligence with a galaxy of eminent resource persons.

In an increasingly changing world which is volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA 1.0), people professionals need to explore the enterprise they work for and the environment beyond, locally, regionally, and globally. They need to respond with vision, understanding, confidence and agility (VUCA 2.0), in becoming “glocal” with global reach and local touch. Competency enhancement should be a key strategic priority for them. In turn, they can design and develop meaningful learning systems for their respective organizations. WHRC 2021 invites people professionals to engage in a cutting-edge learning endavour towards expansion.

Excellence is exceeding expectations with continuous improvement in mind. People professionals need to inculcate excellence as essence. It is not just managing a team but to inspire and influence them towards higher performance individually and interactively. WHRC 2021 invites people professionals to experience the essentials required to collectively move towards excellence.

As the co-chair of the conference and the chair of the technical committee, I can assure you of a continuing commitment of ourselves as a collaborative community to create a memorable mega experience to all participants. We want to bring the World HR Congress 2021 as an enhanced and enriched experience. Do join us to interact with insights for individuals and institutions alike. I look forward to seeing you virtually there with a vibrantly value adding experience.
