'MTI HRM Forum 2013 to break new ground'
MTI HRM Forum 2013, organised by MTI HRM Solutions will, for the
first time, be based on a study of top 100 Heads of HR and 50 CEOs in
Sri Lanka. Sri Lankan HR fraternity and CEOs are due to attend this
event which will be held on June 5 at the Galadari.
"Many HR fora tend to focus on transplanting text book HR concepts to
Sri Lanka and are highly opinionated. Some of the hard issues are not
tackled sufficiently in a structured manner, for example 'Why do so few
HR professionals go on to become CEOs?' This is where the MTI HRM Forum
will break new ground by challenging conventional wisdom and more
importantly taking a business view of HR, not just the warm, fuzzy HR
concepts," said MTI, CEO, Hilmy Cader.
The MTI HRM Forum will comprise two HR modules and one CEO module.
Each module will commence with a presentation of MTI research findings
and thought leadership, followed by focused panels that will discuss the
research finding and debate on relevant issues.
The Core HR panels will feature four of Sri Lanka's top HR
professionals representing the diversity of the Sri Lankan business
community, including Head of Group HR, Expolanka Holdings PLC and Vice
President, Association of HR Professionals, Asitha Jayatunga, Head of
Human Resources, Standard Chartered Bank, Ms. Deshika Rodrigo, HR and
Corporate Relations Director, Fonterra, Roshan Kulasuriya and Director,
Human Resources and Corporate Relations, Unilever Sri Lanka, Udayan
Dutt. The CEO panel will include Chairman and Managing Director, EPIC
Group of Companies, Nayana Dehigama and Managing Director, MAS Active,
Shirendra Lawrence who are due to bring out the entrepreneurial and
corporate perception and challenges with HRM.
The presentation of the research findings and moderation will be
through an international MTI team comprising Senior HR Consultant, MTI
(Middle East and Asia), Darshan Singh, CEO, MTI Consulting, Hilmy Cader
and Associate Consultant, MTI HRM Solutions, Ms. Niyanthini Kadirgamar.
