SCMS Cochin School of Business will be hosting its popular and highly anticipated Humane ‘15 event on the 20th of February, 2015. The annual National conference has grown in stature thanks to the dignitaries it manages to draw onto a platform and the industry-relevant topics it focuses on. This year will be no different as the theme of the event is “Talent Engagement: Need of The Hour”, which definitely is an important industry issue in present times.
It’s not difficult to understand the significance of this topic since businesses today operate in VUCA, which stands for Vulnerability, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity. As a result, there are several economic, technological, demographic and social trends that come with their own challenges. Talent management in organizations thus gains precedence and it’s important to realize that strategies that might have worked well in the past might not do so anymore. The conference strives to seek answers for this and several other questions that impact the industry.
The organizing committee of Humane‘15 has ensured that the event lives up to its expectations by getting big names in the industry together on one platform. They will share experiences and discuss ideas. This is crucial for leaders of tomorrow to overcome the challenge of managing differing aspirations and perspectives through engaging individual talent in the need for changing behaviours in the present and future business world.. Thus, the conference aims to be a huge learning experience for all participants.
Of course, the platform presents an opportunity to future managers from the institute to interact with big names in the industry. Some of eminent personalities who could be speaking at the conference include names like Mrs. Swati Datye, Director Human Resource, First Data Pvt. Ltd, Mr. Umesh Kamath, Director Human Resource, APAC, UST Global, Mr. Rajesh Nair, Associate Director – Markets, Ernst & Young, Ms. M. S. Sheeja, Head Human Resource and Administration, Harrisons Malayalam, and more.
Humane ‘15 is ideal for students, academics, industry professionals and researchers who want to know more about Talent Management and strategies that could be the game changers in the near future. The conference also invites researchers to share their analysis and findings with the audience, thereby contributing to increasing knowledge about changing business trends. All of the papers will be selected through a peer review process published in a special edition of the SCMS Journal of Indian Management, which is its quarterly International research journal.
Some of the areas that the papers can cover include Rules of Engagement, Challenges of Engagement, Globalization, Workforce Diversity, Culture, Strategy, Performance Management, and Engagement Activities. Papers based on Empirical Analysis, Literature Review, Background Note, Works in Progress and Case Studies will be accepted and the outstanding paper chosen by the jury will be given a cash prize. That’s just an added incentive at the conference that promises to be an enriching experience to all.
