Webinar details:

 As the first in a series of webinars that we’re bringing to HR leaders and their teams across Asia, this high-power panel discussion focuses on how SME leaders, CHROs and change champions can assemble a toolkit and lead digital transformation for their organisation.

For the upcoming webinars, look out for sessions on internal mobility & career planning, as well as the impact of hybrid workplace on your recruitment strategy.


With COVID-19 battering bottom lines last year, a silver lining appeared in the form of enterprises, big and small, a cross Southeast Asia being pushed to improve their business recovery and growth. And the number one way to achieve this was, and remains, digitalisation.

Digitalisation is not an issue impacting specific functions; it’s a company-wide challenge. Given that the digitalisation journey will impact every function and employee, SME leaders, CHROs and change champions have an opportunity to lead this conversation and help organisations accelerate growth through digitalisation.

Those who have taken an early lead swear by these benefits – in an April 2021 study, the majority of respondents agree that digital transformation increases efficiency of internal operations (94% in Asia), innovation (78% for Asia), and helps to improve business decisions (83% for Asia).

How can you achieve this level of tech prowess is precisely what we will tackle in our upcoming 60-minute complimentary webinar, where we Human Resources Online has partnered with employment marketplace, SEEK Asia / JobStreet / JobsDB.

You can look forward to the following takeaways from a power-packed panel discussion:


How to identify business processes, including talent acquisition & HR, and company data that can benefit from digitalisation, and rope in your stakeholders’ buy-in.


Components necessary for an effective HR digitalisation strategy: How to build the roadmap, tackle potential challenges, and track milestones.


What works and what doesn’t: Real-life case examples from the context of HR/business practitioners: Differences in digitalisation journey between large and small-medium size businesses.
