TIPS FROM TOP
Strategic Decisions: Dynamic talents in Work Places by Mrs. Kiran Bhatia Tandon, Ex- Talent Acquisition Head, Stryker Ms. Kiran also walked us through the changes in the recruitment, culture assimilation and her very own derived word Recruption, which means disruption in recruitment. Ms. Kiran shared her thoughts on why most of the start-ups falter, with the fastmoving life failing to understand continuity as an art and parcel of creating a culture and a fit to that culture. She placed further emphasis on how people can drive themselves with the idea they have to get the success.

The Shifting Paradigm: Navigating Natural Stupidity through AI by Mr. Sahil Nayar, Associate Director - HR, KPMG Mr. Sahil emphasised on the idea of adaptation and enhancement of our skill-set driven by: true leadership, the ability of the workforce to learn; and the corporate’s ability to train people quickly through effective learning systems. We, as humans are resistant to change and it is the job of the leader to make the change gradual and easier for others. Downsizing does not really serve as the answer, which lies, hidden away in 'up-skilling'; making the workforce ready and trained to deal with different work cultures. As an employee, one needs to have intellectual bandwidth; the intent to learn the new skills; and agility i.e. the capacity to ramp up to changes.
