The People Management Association of the Philippines (PMAP) brings this year’s most exciting Annual Conference to date, the 55th Annual Conference on October 10-12, 2018 at the ASEAN Convention Center, CSEZ, Clarkfield, Pampanga. This full, trailblazing 3-day conference will gather some of the best minds and thought leaders in people management globally.
The amount of disruption expected in the next few years is daunting, relentless and coming quickly. The next 5 to 10 years will drive more change than the previous 50. As traditional businesses adapt to the realities of the new digital age – speedy time to market, intelligently enhanced everything, relevant and bespoke experiences – the implications for people management have been profound. It is no exaggeration to say that the core differentiator for a successful organization today rests on its readiness.
With this as the foreground, this year’s theme is on point: FOCUS! Each of the letters in the word FOCUS stands for an element that will be covered in this year’s Annual Conference:
F – Future
Driven by accelerating connectivity, new talent frameworks, and cognitive tools, future of work is evolving rapidly; thus the entry of the gig economy, artificial intelligence and robotics, among others.
O – Outside In
We must have an outside-in / design thinking mind to reconsider how jobs and organization culture are created and designed; and adapt and learn quickly for future growth.
C – Collaboration
HR should be customer-centric – driving strategic business objectives and enhancing business performance by collaborating with leaders and the business, applying increased agility, flexibility, networking and alignment.
U – Unison
HR should champion unity of purpose and vision – ensuring singular cadence and momentum from different stakeholders to ensure organization success.
S - Sustainability
Responding to stakeholder expectations will inevitably re-calibrate our business to include meaningful impacts, such as how responsibly we use resources today, how adequately we respond to issues like climate change, how we innovate as consumer behavior continues to shift towards emerging trends on health and wellness, and how accountable we are as an organization.
The 5 Plenary Sessions will tackle each of the elements and will be in different formats: panel discussions / presentations:
PLENARY 1: (F of FOCUS – Future) - Decoding the New Work Order: How Do We Win?
PLENARY 2: (O of FOCUS - Outside-in) - Blueprint of Tomorrowland: Will Our Organizations Thrive?
PLENARY 3: (C of FOCUS – Collaboration) - Digital Transformation: Key Enabler for better Workplace Collaboration
PLENARY 4: (U of FOCUS – Unison) - Championing Humanity Amidst Transformational Changes
PLENARY 5: (S of FOCUS – Sustainability) - Sustainability Agenda: The New Organization Imperative
The 15 Concurrent Sessions will tackle a variety of topics that will again focus on the 5 elements. Some topics to be covered: Face-Off: Human vs Robot, an interactive play with Modern Machines; Anatomy of Creative Courage: Designing Employee Experience (EX); Blockchain, bitcoins and the Currency of the Future; Solving Workplace Puzzles through Action Learning; Deciphering the Ultimate Filipino Worker; Writeshop on Total Rewards towards Gig Economy, among others.
