Roundtable Discussion: HR Leaders Resilience – The Secret Sauce Within

Resilience is becoming the secret ingredient of an organization and its members, especially after the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic and various lockdowns. It is more than just a necessary component to the functions and operations of the business, but also the ‘secret sauce’ for capable leaders and staff.

Today, 4 December, AMCHAM held a virtual discussion roundtable with seasoned HR executives on what would make a good recipe to a resilient organization in the new and next normal. The discussion was moderated by Siobhan Das, CEO, AMCHAM, and the HR executives were Kala Kularajah, Consultant at Egon Zehnder, Nisha Padbidri, Country Human Resource Head , Citibank Malaysia at Citibank Bhd, Anwar Yusoff, General Manager, HR & External Affairs at ConocoPhillips Malaysia and Norlida Azmi, Deputy Group Chief Human Resource Officer / CHRO Designate at Axiata Group Berhad.

Each speaker brought insight into how they and their organizations approached resilience, how the sudden changes due to the pandemic forced everyone to adapt and drive themselves further, and what efforts were initiated to help cope with mental stress in the process.

We would like to thank all the speakers for taking the time of their busy schedule to be with us and to share their insights on an important topic.
