The 15th National Human Resources Summit


~ Laying a Firm Foundation for Success ~
29 April 2014 (Tuesday) v Sunway Resort Hotel


“Malaysian talent represents the key to transforming our nation into a high-income economy, driven by knowledge-intensive and innovation-led activities” - YAB Dato' Sri Mohd Najib bin Tun Haji Abdul Razak


The human resources landscape in Malaysia has seen tremendous change over the past 50 years as the nation progressed from being rooted in an agriculture-based economy to the services and manufacturing-based economy that it is today. We are witnessing continued progress as the nation strives toward becoming a knowledge-based economy. In this endeavour, human resources development will be the crucial enabler for Malaysia to realise her ambition of becoming a high-income developed nation by the end of this decade.


Within this context, the 15th National Human Resources Summit seeks to bring attention back to the basic building blocks of crucial human resources functions in order to lay a firm foundation for success not just for the nation as a whole but also for business enterprises and individuals as well as society. We will be examining the HR function’s critical roles in supporting business strategies and in driving change management; discussing the latest developments in workplace learning as well as talent engagement and retention; and searching for the best fit between work-life balance and work-life integration for different groups of employees within your organisation.


This Summit is intended to serve both as a timely platform to provide industry updates, expert insights and practical knowledge and as a conduit to facilitate thought-provoking discussions. It will act as the venue for an important meeting of minds for HR professionals and C-suite executives from the public and private sectors to network, share and form strategic partnerships for furthering their respective organisations’ HR agenda to align with and support strategic business objectives.
