Speaker : Lori Figueiredo, An Coppens & Loi Yaw Yuen Moderator : George Aveling How does digitalisation and globalisation impact learning?

FORUM 3: DESIGN MULTI-GENERATIONAL EMPLOYEE EXPERIENCE JOURNEY FOR TRANSFORMATION
Speaker : Soo Ren Chang, Ellisha Othman, Monir Azzouzi & Keith Ng Moderator : Jeff Cheah We’ve heard about “customer experiences“, what about “employee experiences“? A great employee experience will churn into a harmonious organizational culture, which will lead to great customer experiences. As Human Resources takes on the beginning step to learn from the marketing and customer service functions, HR plays a critical role from the onboarding process to the offboarding process. In this track, speakers will discuss on the pre-planning and planning stage of creating an employee experience journey that would press on the adaptations of all ages. With the understanding of all generation expectations, HR could take a holistic design approach that results in new experiences delivering desired outcomes for both employees and the company.
