Keynotes and Workshop

Keynote 1: Grupo Santander´s HR transformation in response to the future of work

Date 23 Oct 2019
Time 09:35 - 10:30
Location Grandmaster Suite
Speakers:  Dan Strode
With the world of work changing on a daily basis, HR transformation is a key part of an organization’s strategy in order to remain competitive and attract and retain key talent to better serve the needs of its customers. In Santander, operating in 32 countries, serving more than 140 million customers on a regular basis, the world is moving fast. Customer expectations are rapidly rising and the banking industry is becoming ever more digital. The way of working is also changing in response to these customer expectations and needs. A clear human resources strategy has been deployed focusing on the HR digitalisation of the function, the size and shape of the organisation (skills and capabilities), and the culture of the company. These three key areas are packed full of initiatives all aligned to making Santander one of the best places to work for. This keynote is packed with practical examples, and mini case studies on how to prepare for the future of work, now.


Workshop 1: Digitising and democratising coaching to power the organisation of the future

Date 23 Oct 2019
Time 10:30 - 11:30
Location Vilhena 
Speakers:  Elisa Krantz , Nicola Critien
For an organisation to remain agile and competitive in an increasingly technological, globally dispersed world, where the ways people work are rapidly changing, we need to rethink how we drive transformation through people. How do we really transform organisational cultures? How do we empower leaders and managers to transition to new roles faster and better? How do we unlock higher levels of potential and performance? And how do we make change stick? These challenges, what they mean for leaders and HR professionals in Malta, and how pioneering technology, science and Psychology can democratise coaching will be discussed in an interactive session. All this in the pursuit of accelerating the growth and transformation of individuals and teams. This workshop will be delivered by Baton&Baton, a global boutique leadership consultancy, and its sister company Mindbeat, an innovative mobile coaching and mentoring platform.


Workshop 2: Skills disruption in the digital age. How could HR tackle it?

Date 23 Oct 2019
Time 10:30 - 11:30
Location Wignacourt
Speakers:  Christian Scharff
Preparing for tomorrow's workforce includes getting ready for twin challenges of producing growth and preparing for the new and unknown opportunities the future will bring. The Fourth Industrial Revolution is already having a high level of impact on today’s business operations, workforce and society. We must empower our workforce to think differently and embrace digital to accelerate business performance. Our strategic agenda must include significant investment in the potential of our people. The World Economic Forum Future of Jobs Report - Outlook to 2022 in fact indicates that 54% all employees will require significant re- and upskilling. Organisations that understand and act on these workforce changes now will not only have the skills but also the organisational motivation, innovation and adaptability to thrive. These are business issues that demand vision and leadership from the top….HR has a critical role to play here. Christian Scharff’s presentation will explore the impact that skills disruption is having on business competitiveness and the role HR needs to play in relation to workforce planning, strategic management, upskilling and change management.
