Workshop Description:


Human Capital Management (HCM) encompasses the practices and strategies that organizations use to manage their workforce effectively. This includes everything from recruitment and onboarding to performance management and talent development. HCM has always been a critical function for organizations, but it has become increasingly important in the post-COVID world.

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about a number of significant changes to the workplace, including the rise of remote work, the decline of traditional office spaces, and the increased importance of employee well-being. These changes have had a profound impact on HCM, and organizations are now having to rethink their HCM strategies in order to adapt to this new normal.


The workshop "Human Capital Management in a Post-Covid World: Emerging trends and workplace strategies" will explore the latest trends in HCM and provide organizations with practical strategies for managing their workforce in the post-COVID era. The workshop will cover a wide range of topics, including:

  • The rise of remote work
  • The decline of traditional office spaces
  • The increased importance of employee well-being
  • The use of technology to manage the workforce
  • The development of new HCM skills and competencies

The workshop will feature presentations from leading experts in the field of HCM, as well as case studies from organizations that have successfully implemented innovative HCM strategies. The workshop will also provide participants with the opportunity to network with other HCM professionals and share best practices.

Scope and Information for participants

The workshop is intended for HR students, academics, researchers, and anyone who is interested in learning more about the latest trends in HCM and how to manage their workforce effectively in the post-COVID era.
