Event Description

Are you struggling to build an A.I. initiative? Need another coder or data scientist for your engineering team? Have you interviewed too many unqualified UX designers or scrambling to locate a BlockChain developer on LinkedIn?

Assembling qualified technology teams is hard. Yet, every successful CEO harps on the importance of hiring the best talent possible. If the talent equation is so crucial to success, why do so many companies struggle to maximize hiring ROI?

Whether you are an entrepreneur, executive or HR manager, Singapore's talent eco-system possesses a number of challenges. Innovative talent is hard to find, attract and retain, especially as technologies evolve so rapidly. Further, the talent shortage and changing workplace makes such hiring processes even more time-consuming, complex and costly on an individual basis let alone to build a team.

In this interactive workshop, learn to turn your talent challenges into opportunities with our speaker and invited panelists to build a diverse culture. You will leave with the actionable knowledge and faith to navigate the Singapore Talent Eco-System successfully.
