HR Conclave’ 18


HR Conclave’18, the annual HR panel discussion event of SIMSREE, was conducted on 1st November, 2018, at a scale larger than ever before. HR managers from companies spanning across various sectors participated in the discussion. The discussion centred around the theme – “Future Blueprint of Human Capital” and was moderated by Mr. Aniruddha Khekale (Group HR Head, Emerson Automation Solutions). The panel consisted of some eminent speakers like Mr. Shourya Chakravarty (CHRO, Aptech), Mr. Dhruv Anand (Associate VP HR, Laqshya Media Group), Ms. Heather Saville Gupta (Group HR Director, MullenLowe Lintas Group) and Mr. Pradeep Dasan (VP & Head of Talent Acquisition, Nayara Energy) who shared their insights and presented their viewpoints on topics vital gig economy and people analytics which are relatively new to the HR domain but are changing the entire course of HR planning.

Keeping with the tradition at SIMSREE, the event started with the Saraswati Vandana, followed by an enlightening speech by Dr. Sangeeta Pandit, who laid the foundation for the panel discussion. The panel members shared some excellent views on how technology is playing the role of a facilitator and not of a disruptor, the way in which workplaces are changing and what the future holds in store for budding managers like us. The panel discussion was followed by the Q&A session where students asked apropos questions to the panel and gained further insights into the topic.

The panel discussion ended with the Director’s speech, where Dr. Manoj Bhide, applauded the Corporate Relations Committee for successfully pulling off an event of this stature and also appreciated the learning derived which will be beneficial for the students in the future.
