AIF’s CEO Dr Raymond Madden participated as a panellist in the HR Knowledge Bazaar and Conference 2015 that was organised by the Asian Institute of Chartered Bankers. Themed “Talent Management 2020 for Superior Business Performance”, the Conference was held on 22 April 2015 at Auditorium, Sasana Kijang, Bank Negara Malaysia. With talent management becoming an increasingly demanding field, it is essential that every HR and business professional understand the challenges that lie ahead and how to manage expectations.
During the “Global Workforce Strategies CEOs Deploy to Achieve Leading Business Results” panel session, Dr Madden highlighted that talent shortages have proven to be the new normal state-of-being for many organisations. It is also one of the reasons the industry may continue to face a talent shortage. Jobs have changed significantly due to increasing complexity in the banking sector. Greater focus on regulation and compliance post-global financial crisis has resulted in different skill sets and values necessary to perform these jobs.
With approximately 20 subject matter experts lined up, this year’s conference attracted the participation of 400 professionals from all industries throughout Asia.
