Mr Abhay Gupte, the keynote speaker explained the theme “VUCA world : HR at Crossroad”.

Disha 2016

According to him there are three generations at workplace now which is creating a lot new jobs both known and unknown. The new challenge today is that tech savvy generation is competing against a generation with experience. Integrating these generation gaps and integrating its workers is the disruption necessary today. We now need to select leaders who do not need much nurturing and can work efficiently with clarity of thought.

Mr. Dilpreet Singh summed up his preceding speakers, both agreeing and disagreeing with their views.  He said, “HR is not at crossroads, because there is only one entry to the VUCA world.” He believes that the trigger behind the change is emerging technology, which can be disruptive and transformative.

But technology is going to get smarter and smarter and we need to keep up. Mr Singh stated that a consumer centric economy is the cause of uncertainty in today’s world. The role of an HR personnel is to anticipate and predict the change; there is a need for shift from predictive analytics to prescriptive analytics.
