SINGAPORE, Sept. 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Policymakers, HR, technology, operations and C-level executives will convene in Singapore and online at Economist Impact's second annual Innovation@Work Asia, taking place this October 12th to 14th 2022.
Economic pressures and tight labour markets are compounding workplace and operational concerns around cyber threats and sustainability. To ensure operational continuity and drive business performance, leaders rapidly adopted technologies to address labour gaps, cyber threats and social issues arising from disruptions to traditional work models. Innovation@Work Asia asks whether technology panacea will last and discover the here-to-stay strategies from recent transformative work experiments.
Discussions will address pressing issues faced by the c-suite across Asia today —from shifting business priorities and employee initiatives, the pressures for leadership roles, employee wellbeing, adapting to emerging work trends, to accelerating digital transformation with panels including From human resource to human development - paradigm in practice; When the gig goes mainstream; and The role of AI, robotics and automation in shaping the future of work. View the latest agenda.
