The organisation seeks to develop the capabilities of individuals and firms so that they can seize key opportunities. However, the role of HR in India itself has undergone a sea change. The context that has evolved in the workplace is based on a solid foundation and the belief that learning has a value and is required for progress.

ONE day to go for SHRM India’s annual conference, 2015, and you can colour us thrilled!

The theme of this year’s conference is “Velocity – accelerating HR”, and it couldn’t have been more perfect. At a time when the conversation around HR is increasingly focused on empowering HR to be a business partner, we’re sure the conference is going to be a crucial contribution. The transformation of HR has been set in motion for a while now, but it’s time to critically review, rehaul, and re-fuel it – in the right direction, and at the right pace.

Richard Cowley, our founder, will be speaking on Day 2 of the conference. With the help of a facilitative session, Richard hopes to elevate the conversation around HR transformation and his focus will be on practical solutions to enable the transformation.
