Bringing together the world’s most influential business thinkers, local and international solution providers and top HR decision makers from the government, semi government, state owned entities as well as public & private sector organizations, all under one roof, the three-day summit highlights GCC success stories of putting people first, best practice implementation, top HR & technology trends and thought-provoking industry content.

John Mattone will also be leading a one-day masterclass on October 17, 2019 exclusively for the summit and for the first time in the region.

Business leaders influence how their organizations ensure that their workforce is future ready, A Regional Outlook Panel Discussion focusing on GCC leaders’ approach to leadership will initiate a dialogue by the esteemed panel members on the programs initiated in developing millennials to support the organization’s vision while preparing for the workplace of the future. On the panel are H.E. Abdulla Al Majid, Assistant Undersecretary for Support Services, Ministry of Justice, UAE; H.E. Dr. Ahmed Abdalla Nasser, Assistant Secretary General, Shura Council, Bahrain; Essa Al Mulla, Chief of National Workforce Development, Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), UAE; Dr. Qasem Al Salem, Director General, Royal Hospital, Oman; and Samer Al Rayyan, Deputy Director General, Human Resource Development Fund, KSA and Dr. Jasim Al Ali, Deputy CEO of Corporate Sector & CEO of Happiness & Wellbeing at Dubai Media Incorporated.

Speaking about getting the best out of human capital, Melanie Weaver Barnett, Chief Executive Education Officer, Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan, USA says “People give their very best when they are energized by their work. And that happens when the organization is winning, the culture is an engaging one, and people see the positive purpose of their work.

All of this cannot happen unless people have the capabilities and confidence they need to succeed. Now more than ever, the public sector is being challenged to transform, and to invest in developing leaders who have these necessary capabilities to create transformation. The challenge is not about finding the products or solutions to enable digital transformation; instead it’s about creating a culture that enables transformational change and a system that equips the leaders with the mindsets and skills to drive the change and implement the solutions. HR leaders need to engage positive leaders who implement change in a way that engages people in the process.”

Commenting on the role of public sector HR leaders, H.E. Dr. Ahmed Abdalla Nasser, Assistant Secretary General, Shura Council, Bahrain said “Leadership is vital to the public sector not only because of its positive impact on job performance and employee satisfaction but more importantly because of how it dictates the extent of effectiveness of government and public agencies. In order for leadership to prosper in public organizations, leaders should exert maximum effort to understand employees and determine how best to support and motivate them. They should also show a firm commitment to leading and managing change and be willing to hone their participative management skills by proactively involving others in the decision-making process”

The second half of day one will witness high impact idea-sharing planned on benchmarking human capital strategies with top organizations and leveraging technology to increase employee happiness.

Commenting on 2019 annual of the GOV HR Summit, Ackash Jain, Director, QNA International, the organizers of the summit, says “This year the summit is planned focusing on key HR trends for the millennial workforce. While the traditional components still remain, upcoming trends like employee happiness and wellbeing, 21st century leadership skills, digitization of the workplace among others is taking center stage. Talent management and employee experience is identified as the key factor in addition to the above to manage a workplace of the future. We are looking forward to some impactful solutions and discussions to enrich and manage today’s workforce.”

On day 2 the GCC GOV HR Awards 2019 will be held in conjunction with the GOV HR Summit. The awards aim to highlight, honor and celebrate path breaking achievements of public & private sector organizations and individuals who have demonstrated exemplary leadership towards driving organizational and team effectiveness through Human Capital Management, Diversity and Strategic Planning.
