Leading to winning the fight:

A Journey to Transformation

August 24, 2022 • Intercontinental Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia



For two years of restriction, many businesses and its leaders have encountered unattractive phenomenon as everyone grappled with the effects of the out break. Add to that the ongoing drive and push for digitisation across functions and processes, truly it is a long and winding road for HR leaders and the work force as they continue to rise through change and challenges

In light of the ongoing transformation initiatives in the country, more than 9 out of 10 Malaysian respondents want their employers or the government to provide skills assessment testsaccording to a Randstad report. In congruence to a study by Gartner, in terms of spending and investment, it has been found that in this year 2022, 65% of respondents are into executing business transformations evident in the finding that there is a 17% decrease from last year when it comes to optimizing costs. Going back to the Randstad reference, it also showed that Malaysia is experiencing the impact of the great resignationthat many businesses are faced with across the globe. There are employees who look for greener pastures and it is evident with the, quoting Randstad, 51% of respondents [who] value career growth opportunities.The woes on implementations of back to office policy is also a contributor to this issue as employees make an attempt to compromise with employers who need people in the office. There are also those who no longer find benefits and compensation unattractive and the lack of support from employers in so many areas of job performance that therefore disconnects the employee not only to his colleagues but most importantly to the employer. In connection to this, workers who feel connected to their employers are 75 times more likely to feel engaged compared to those who feel a disconnect with managementaccording to a research

Due to the wide and tangible effects of the great resignation, HR leaders have been prompted to strategize and design better benefits, experiences, and workplace environments. To create frameworks of inclusivity, to realize and achieve goals, and to ensure employee wellbeing and safety

In the sphere of HR, many topics of discussion are needed to be tackled. And in this 11th edition of Rockbird Medias HR Leaders Asia on August 24, expect the topnotch HR leaders and partners to be part of this event specially curated for you and your needs

Agenda At A Glance

HR Leaders Icon


A lot of learnings from this event, espe cially that the role of HR has evolved quite fast during the pandemic. Also very good that the organizers were able to pull off this face to face event - as the very first one in 2 years.

I think it's a really good breath of people from different industries, different expe riences, different countries, and market. I think that's been interesting. I think this has been a great opportunity to share across relevant topics that help a lot as well.

What I really liked was the high quality of attendees. As I can see the high quality of speakers and I think there was some very cutting edge as well as pragmatical prac tical HR stuff discussed and which I feel is quite good; collective people came up with some great ideas. And I'm sure everybody went back taking some ideas they can implement tomorrow on their jobs.

What I really like about this event is you get to learn a lot from HR practitioners who can help you. It's really good.

Roundtable was pretty good because | think that's where you get exchange ratherthan speakers downloading be cause the knowledge is shared among the participants. You have leaders been there in the industry for a long time so they can actually exchange ideas and shared the challenges they face.

For me, organizing the one to-one meet ing with the sponsor what definitely stand-out. Basically our agenda is to make sure that we are engaging the right people with the right corporates. So the matchmaking format that you came out with is absolutely brilliant.
