Future of work: Are Hong Kong businesses prepared?
Thursday, September 20, 2018, JW Marriott Hong Kong
11:30am - 2:00pm

The nature of work is evolving rapidly thanks to advancements in technologies, shifting demographics, trends in talent mobility and new, disruptive business models. Hong Kong companies are feeling the strain from the immense competition and lack of appropriately-skilled local and international talent.

Panellists will debate on the future of work and discuss how they recruit and retain employees for today and for the future.

  • What will the future of work look like in 2025 and what skills will be most in-demand?

  • Is Hong Kong losing out to other regional and global cities in the race for highly-skilled talent?

  • What are the respective roles of government and industry in making Hong Kong an attractive place to work?

  • What strategies can companies use to hire and retain younger, millennial workers?

*CPD e-Certificate will be issued upon request.
