7 Reasons to Attend HR Leaders Conference in Egypt

Published

on

Written By: Mahmoud Mansi

What is the HR Leaders Conference about?

It is an annual conference organized by “informa” that has been held in different MENA countries such as Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, and mainly Dubai. This is the seventh year of informa providing such events to the HR world in-partnership with JOBMASTER, and this is the first time for the international conference to be held in Egypt. It will take place in Fairmont Heliopolis Hotel, Cairo on the 14th up to the 17th of March 2016.

But before any conference, one should list all the gained benefits, and how they can affect his or her short-term/long-term goals. Another thing that can be done, is listing how YOU will add benefit to the event with your participation, and how your fingerprint will make a difference.

Below are some of the benefits for attending the HR Leaders Event:

1- Break the Routine & Learn

As an HR director, an entrepreneur, or a business owner, you are continuously overwhelmed with work, routine, solving problems and research. When one’s mind is troubled, it is always advised that this person should meditate, and then will be able to see things clearly and see what is behind the problems. HR Leaders conference will be your routine-breaker & meditation. There you will find a way out of your daily work stress, you will be exposed to different energies, you will attend workshops and masterclasses, you will go beyond your problems and be empowered by new knowledge and people, and last but not least you will become a more powerful HR person.

2- Act as a PR agent to your Organization

It is a chance to put yourself in your PR’s shoes, and see the world from his or her eyes. An HRian is more than someone only acting as HR, but someone who is multi-talented and cares about the organization same as its people. Your organization will be even prouder of your achievements. Eventually, all employees should act as PR agents to their organizations.

3- Stay Up-to-date

Reading a new article or a recently published book is not the only thing that would keep us up-to-date. But reading people is. Glorious speakers from very diverse cultures and organizations will be present all for one major common goal; act as a change agent and inspire MENA region for a greater HR future.

4- Brand Yourself

5

With the awareness towards human capital, and the importance of talent, no matter how one can be successful but we should always work on branding ourselves. Branding is like learning, like giving, and like success, it has no limits. Sometimes a strong organizational brand gives a strong image to its employees, but with the new business world order it’s the people who brand themselves thus give a strong image to their organization.

4

5- Make New Friends

I know one is used to always think practical, but enjoying your time, making new friends, and building new connections is always a perfect way to keep us mentally healthy.

6

6- Analyze HR Market

To benchmark your personal and organizational HR achievements and strategy one should be always involved in the HR market. Comparing figures together is a method of bench-marking, however comparing minds and the making of a plan is another smart yet uncommon method of bench-marking.

7

7- Get Certified

One of the partners in this event is SHRM, and all the workshops and masterclasses will be conducted by their certified trainers. Their sessions will include: HR Administrator to HR Business Partners, Employee Engagement Action Plans, HiPo and Leadership Development Strategy, Developing Effective Competency Frameworks to Optimize Your Workforce, Advanced Compensation Bench-marking, and Performance Management and Performance Appraisal.

Wellbeing @ Work Summit Middle East 2021 – where balance, resilience and authenticity break the Mental Health Stigma

Published

on

Written by: Cinzia Nitti

Globally, 2020 has been a year like no other. Coronavirus pandemic caused a massive business disruption; transformation has been key in supporting employees and catalyzing workplace changes. There was a rush to adapt and reinvent Business Models. Organizations had to rethink and reconsider how they deliver services and strengthen their Organizations through a forward-thinking Digital strategy. To be more agile and responsive in such uncertain times, we need to respond to challenges and adapt quickly to new scenarios by moving from rigid hierarchies to leaner and more flexible structures.

But what about Mental Health at Work, and why is it essential?

What’s the Office of the Future?

Within the Wellbeing @ Work Summit Middle East 2021, HR Leaders tried to normalize the conversation about Mental Health by putting the topic first, enabling self-care and professional support, raising awareness, and building knowledge around its related issues. Nowadays, personal and work life are more intertwined than ever, so it becomes vital to create balance: the more employees feel free to talk about Mental Health, the more they can prevent struggle and breakout at the Workplace. HR leaders play a crucial role in making an IMPACT by pushing new solutions, promoting work-life balance, redesign workloads, and supporting their Teams.

In this general frame, Irada Aghamaliyeva (MENA Diversity, Inclusiveness & Wellbeing Leader at EY) affirmed: “Workplaces that are inclusive foster enhanced employee wellbeing; employees with high levels of wellbeing are more inclusive”. How can Organizations increase employees’ resilience and embed sustainable Leadership behaviors in the post-covid reality?

Dr. Irada Aghamaliyeva introduced the Mindfulness practice in the Workplace and highlighted its benefits on a large scale: improved wellbeing and resilience on a physical level; positive emotions, self-regulation, empathy and awareness of social dynamics; learning and innovation thanks to the implementation of flexible thinking, intuition and problem-solving processes. So breaking the stigma is possible, starting from personal wellbeing to sustain positive energy and fuel resilience.

About the Power of Empathetic and Authentic Leadership, Dr. Rima Ghose Chowdhury (EVP & Chief Human Resources Officers at Datamatics Global Services) stresses the importance of Leadership roles today. The virtual environment employees are working in, makes them more vulnerable due to a lack of balance between emotional and authenticity traits. Authenticity is the primary factor in effective leadership, regardless of the leadership style. Putting employees first as a strategic priority and hearing their voices to guide strategy; embracing agility to work more effectively in tumultuous time; including a multigenerational work-force: these are the key concepts within Dr. Rima’s motto “Empowering is to enable”. Through motivation and filling emotional support needs, the Empowering Teams Process leads to employees’ safety, esteem, and self-actualization. 

The Wellbeing @ Work Summit delivers strategic direction, advice and inspiration from employers and experts from across the world to help you create a more compassionate corporate culture that delivers results.

Global 24 hour virtual event | 19 and 20 January 2021

The world in 2020 has changed to a ‘new normality’ but what’s that ‘new normality’ everybody talks about? Is it here to stay? How is it affecting us in our daily lives in the different versions of ourselves? As a customer, an entrepreneur, a parent, a friend…a worker…

Our job is a key part of our lives and we are indeed living through a fundamental transformation in the way we work. Automation and ‘thinking machines’ are replacing human tasks and jobs, and changing the skills that organisations are looking for in their people. These momentous changes raise huge organisational, talent and other HR challenges. It has become clear that few organisations are likely to revert to pre-pandemic practices even after a vaccine is found.

Why you should attend:

  • Learn about the trends and best practices shaping future HR
  • Get valuable insights from expert speakers
  • Share ideas and research to help your organisation reach its goals
  • Understand what do employees want in ‘New Normal’
  • Develop new vision for HRBP and Centre of Expertise
  • Identify, integrate and understand stakeholders to create an intentional employee experience
  • Approaches and elements to leadership development.

Some of our confirmed speakers:

  • Tshepo Yvonne Mosadi , Human Resources Director, The HEINEKEN Company
  • Sarah Tabet, Global HR Director/ D&I Leader | Author for “Inclusion Starts with U”, Schneider Electric
  • Wadah Al Turki, Country Talent Manager KSA and Bahrain, IKEA
