The year 2020 is when many of you are looking to re-prioritise and re-invent your HR strategies with a tech-facilitated human focus. It’s time you put meaning back into work, and create experiences your employees crave akin to the excellent.

Human Resources Online is excited to announce the launch of Accelerate HR, a new, refreshing and revolutionary two-day strategic conference aimed at bringing together over 120 movers and shakers of Malaysia’s HR industry in Kuala Lumpur.

This comes straight on the heals of the successful launch of the brand, Accelerate HR, in Bangkok this year.

As an HR practitioner, learn how you can be the trailblazer and propel business profits for sustainability with your talent agenda. You can expect to hear from experts through the pre-conference workshop, office site visits, presentations and more.

In this backdrop, Malaysia’s top HR leaders and the HR community will gather at the first-ever Malaysia edition of Accelerate HR, Malaysia edition on 8-9 April 2020 in Kuala Lumpur. The two-day strategic conference will offer HR professionals a unique opportunity to learn how to drive business solutions with robust human capital intelligence.

“Accelerate HR will not only give you all the tools you need to catalyse the HR function, but will also bring to light latest technologies that will aid in strengthening your employer brand,” said Naomi Cranswick, Regional Publisher of Human Resources Online.

“As HR moves the needle from jobs to super jobs, be prepared to analyse and assess your critical thinking, and understanding derived from data as this will be the new currency for business.”

Accelerate HR will deliver cutting-edge content from C-suite speakers in some of the top ranked companies to work for in Malaysia. Delving into the key HR concerns in Malaysia, the conference will be focusing on:
