TANZANIA will host the the12th Annual Human Resource Summit and Master Class to discuss how to tackle emerging issues and trends in the world of work, which has become digitalised and involves hybrid workplaces, she noted.
The Deputy Minister in the President’s Office (Public Service Management and Good Governance), Mr Deogratias Ndejembi will be the guest of honour at the event, slated for 17 – 22 October this year in Arusha.
Ms Phylisiah Mnene-Mcheni, the founder and convener of the Human Resource Summit said the summit will focus on the best way to manage an unsettled and unpredictable VUCA world, which requires addressing volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity in the work environment to ensure measurable outputs. VUCA is an acronym for volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity.
“The conventional HR is gone. We have a hybrid workplace. For best production, results and profitability, accelerating work simplification, and adopting new technology makeup, often outside the conventional spheres, is now the order of the day.
It calls for excellent leadership and transformation, starting with the self that can be reflected on others, to change and shine,” she noted.
The interactive master classes and HR summit involves C-level experts sharing key strategies on effective HR transformation, automation, diversity and inclusion in the battle to beat emerging challenges-policy, environmental and health.
The HR of today is supposed to provide critical decision-making for the future of any business or corporate entity.
“The summit provides great opportunities to gain new knowledge, valuable experience, inspiration, and insights from top leaders as well as establish important HR contacts,” she noted.
Some of the Pan Africa key speakers at the pre-summit event include Lulu Ng’wanakilala, CEO of Legal Service Facility Tanzania, who will speak on mastering ethical and responsible leadership, Dr Edward Hosea, the President of Tanganyika Law Society who will give an address on sustainable business practices.
