Women in Successful Careers in Nigeria (WISCAR), is set to hold its 2019 Annual leadership and mentorship conference. The Conference themed “I DO NOT WALK ALONE” is scheduled to hold on Saturday, November 24, 2019, at the Muson Center, Onikan, Lagos and will have as its keynote speaker, the Deputy Secretary-General of the UN, Ms Amina Mohammed (OFR). 

The theme of this year’s conference is based on WISCAR’s mission of developing women to build a better nation. To date through its various structured and open series programs, WISCAR has impacted over 8,000women and men.

Commenting on the theme of the conference, Founder of WISCAR, Mrs Amina Oyagbola, an experienced corporate executive and mentor said, “Our conference theme ‘I do not walk alone’ is a perfect summation of the essence of WISCAR. In our various mentorship programs and advocacy for equity and parity, we harness the power of togetherness, community and networks to achieve critical impact. We believe firmly in the timeless African proverb that says ‘if you want to go fast, go alone if you want to go far, go together’. Now more than ever, it is pertinent to pay attention to the issue of solidarity, partnership and collaboration and this is what we are actively doing at WISCAR”.

On her part, the Executive Secretary of WISCAR, Mrs Fabia Ogunmekan enthused that the theme of the event is in consonance with what WISCAR promotes. “Our 2019 Annual Conference, our final master class in the WISCAR calendar will continue to build on this message of community and impact, by celebrating these networks and at the same time critically examining the role of community and networks in our journeys to ‘Becoming more’ and ‘Pressing for progress’ and ‘Better balance’.

Emerging Stronger with Adaptable HR: Alight Solutions’ State of HR Transformation...

SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 12 May 2021 - After releasing three insightful editions, we are delighted to bring to you the fourth edition of the Alight Solutions' State of HR Transformation Study in partnership with People Matters.


WISCAR Set To Hold Its 2019 Annual Leadership And Mentoring Conference - Brand Spur


The study, which was launched during the People Matters TechHR SEA, is themed around Emerging Stronger and sheds light on how some organisations are ahead of the curve in emerging stronger. A key finding was the positive sentiment that organisations in Asia have for the coming 12 months. Amongst them, adaptable organisations have reported that they are 1.5 times more likely to see positive growth in revenues and profits. The HR function has certainly proved its mettle in this case and shown how well it can manage disruption and guide organisations to emerge stronger.

Last year, Alight brought forward the construct of Adaptable HR as a guide to navigating the increasingly uncertain business and talent landscape in the midst of the biggest crisis faced. Exploring the anchors of adaptability in HR functions, Alight has consistently observed that HR Operating Model (interchangeably referred to as HR Service Delivery or Business Model) plays an important role in driving confidence on execution and productivity. When complemented with the right HR technology strategy, the results are amplified further.

Talking about this year's study, Vikrant Khanna (Sr. Director and Advisory Lead at Alight Solutions), exclaimed, "We are delighted to see how Adaptable HR function led organisations are recovering from the impact of the pandemic. While there is still quite a bit of uncertainty in the environment, the construct of Adaptable HR acts as a lighthouse for organisations to emerge stronger."

This year, as we continue to face new challenges and uncertainties posed by the pandemic, Alight found that organisations with Adaptable HR are emerging stronger to:

Lead in being digital: Adaptable HR report twenty times the NPS on technology satisfaction as compared to market averages. This is due to the digital success enabled by leveraging HR Technology to complement the HR Operating Model. In addition, 50% of Adaptable HR have advanced along their adoption journey of robotics and cognitive technologies to drive efficiencies and improved experience for employees.

Enable shifts in the way we work: Adaptable HR functions are three times more likely to be proactive in driving institutional change, new ways of working, and adoption of work technologies. In fact, Adaptable HR functions report the use of up to 5 forms of work technologies. Factors that enabled quick adoption include investment priorities and the right efforts in helping adoption through investments in manager/ leader enablement.

Reimagine HR: Adaptable HR functions are three times more likely to succeed in delivering closer partnership with the business through their operating model and capabilities. The specific capabilities demanded in Adaptable HR functions are what sets them apart and enables the organisation to be agile by design.

Shape and deliver value: Adaptable HR functions are almost three times more confident in their HR strategy and execution. This foundation and investment priorities enables them to be better equipped to address complexities and more proactive in responding to changes.

The world of work too has undergone drastic transformation in these times. Adaptable HR functions have proven that HR is truly at the forefront of shaping and delivering value to stakeholders, enabling us to adopt new ways of working, and enable digital success. Throughout this report, observations were shared in terms of how Adaptable HR organisations have paved ways for new co-creations and solutions for people and organisations to emerge stronger.

It is an accumulation of all individual behaviour changes and the larger organisation change which leads to business success. It is no surprise that organisations with Adaptable HR functions are 1.5 times more likely to have favourable growth in revenues and profit before tax in the coming 12 months.

Shaswat Kumar (Vice President and Asia Leader, Alight Solutions) shares, "This year's findings demonstrate that Adaptable HR function led organisations are likely to succeed in their change agenda. This will enable organisations, not only to compete better, but also to deliver the right value to its constituents and shareholders."
