Your biggest “S” in ESG: Sustainable Human Capital Management & Workplace Transformation

Jeff Higgins, Anuar Rozhan & Rachele Focardi

The drum-up on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) matters has gained much momentum in 2021, culminated with the United Nations-led COP26. The ESG concept in Human Capital Management (HCM) and wellness may be even relatively “newer” but no less essential as ESG has been proven to impact business sustainability and productivity in the longer term, and ultimately this must give rise to its importance on the board agenda.


10.00am Presentation by Jeff Higgins, Founder/CEO of Human Capital Management Institute (HCMI) and Anuar Rozhan, Managing Partner & CEO of HCMI SEA and Pacific

Understand why human capital management and wellness is so important now, its link to productivity and ultimately, the bottom line as well as why this should be a board agenda.

10.30am Presentation by Rachele Focardi, CEO of XYZ@Work

Intergenerational collaboration will become critical to business success – now more than ever. In order to thrive in a post-Covid world, and bring the business into the future, organisations will need both the experience and knowledge of the older generations, and the energy and social mindedness of today’s youth. During this session, Rachele will reveal everything you need to know about the challenges and opportunities in a multigenerational workforce, and how the boards can play a critical part in helping organisations unleash the power of their human capital.
