EBS2019 Asia’ The Employer Brand Strategy (Learning) Summit Asia

2019-12-05 9:00 am - 2019-12-06 12:30 pm The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore (TBC)

Christine Lagarde, the Managing Director of IMF (the International Monetary Fund) In April, 2019, evaluated current outlook: “I described the global economy as being at a ‘delicate moment’. The IMF cut its global growth forecast to 3.3 percent in 2019, largely because of temporary, country-specific factors and the tangible effects of trade tensions. At the same time, we projected a pickup in growth in the second half of this year and a further acceleration to 3.6 percent in 2020, the same growth rate as in 2018.”

When economic turbulence comes around, what are you going to do?

On another side, the world at work is changing faster.

Workforce transformation is picking up while work is going further digital and increasingly automatic, as technical advancement brings in much more disruption to computing, communication and collaboration.

Megan McConnell and Bill Schaninger from McKinsey, aforementioned continued to describe, “fully 60 percent of global executives in a recent McKinsey survey (McKinsey panel survey, November 2017 (n = 1,549); for more, see “Retraining and reskilling workers in the age of automation,” McKinsey Global Institute, January 2018) expect that up to half of their organization’s workforce will need retraining or replacing within five years. An additional 28 percent of executives expect that more than half of their workforce will need retraining or replacing. More than one-third of the survey respondents said their organizations are unprepared to address the skill gaps they anticipate.”

New technologies, particularly AI as one of those major applications, to be introduced into morden workforce increasingly brings more complex to corporate governance, while trade dispute among several major countries, especially China and US, is adding more burden on shoulders of people management executives who are already faced with surging cost’s impact on business operation.

What’s happening on talent side in Asia?

According to the Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI) for its annual report for 2019 jointly by  INSEAD, the Adecco Group, and Tata Communications and published from INSEAD’s official website, said that  an Asian city, for the 1st time is in the top 10 and, out of the 29 cities ranked in Asia Pacific, 11 are from China mainland.

You may check out the figure taken from hrmasia.com according to 2019 GTCI jointly  by INSEAD, the Adecco Group, and Tata Communications. 

The report also claimed “the rise of Asian cities on the global talent radar screen is bound to continue in the coming years, aligned with greater national efforts to develop smart cities. The top four Asian cities in the GCTCI ( note by the quoter: GCTCI is Global Cities Talent Competitiveness Index, part of GTCI) are home to large organisations and focus on retaining their talent.”

The report for GTCI 2019 continues to highlight: “the mere fact that the GTCI’s database has been increasing in coverage and quality is just one piece of evidence demonstrating that all types of organisations (private and public, governmental or not) have been devoting significant resources and energy to identifying ways to measure talent and its related dimensions. But, more importantly, the reverse causality link is gaining visibility and importance. This means that analyses and assessments are not carried out only to measure how better-endowed and richer economies foster talent, but more and more to measure the impact of talent performance on other broad objectives such as growth, job creation, and innovation.

New job, new talent,  upgraded leadership, digital transformation, improved quality, regional collaboration….

These keywords are all we may retrieve from the market and circumstance surrounding us, after we have together come so far by navigating the last part of the document.

And I believe those keywords all lead to one big thing, right talent and leadership to drive right culture and organization to thrive through ups and downs, towards a brand success.

One of way doing this is an effective employer brand strategy, isn’t it?

“To answer this well, one of ways is to put together the most forward-thinking leaders and pioneering practitioners to exchange and debate on fresh practice and look beyond the reality, while tracing back to the origin of the Employer Brand concept and revisiting inspiration behind and beyond the idea,” Steven Li from LinLead, the third party learning event organizer suggested.

LinLead is working to bring its EBS learning series to Singapore to forward Employer Brand Leadership further and deeper in Asia, with a general conference on Dec 6, 2019, and an add-on Learning Workshop on Dec 5, 2019, in Singapore
