With the second wave of the pandemic hitting us, new trends are being created in Talent Acquisition for all. As the Workplace & Workforce dynamics undergo a drastic makeover, we at Catenon India had the privilege of talking to some esteemed HR Leaders of today.

The questions that were explored as a part of our Workplace Lessons include-

  • The whole world went from a work from office to a WFH transition. What is it that your organization did differently that proved to be path breaking?
  • Tell us a bit about your leadership hiring strategy in 2019 vs 2020. Is it something different that you look for now that you didn’t necessarily do prior to the pandemic?
  • How have the learning needs changed and what is the learning focus for your organisation’s top leaders?
  • What has been the biggest organisational challenge that you have successfully managed to overcome in the pandemic period?
  • What are the skills that have become the most sought after as a result of the pandemic?
