The workshop created great awareness when it was attended by a large number of HR and L&D communities.  

1. Redefining the story of human resources, talent & training in a new context

At the beginning of the seminar, Dr. Gian Tu Trung – Founder of PACE Institute of Management shared about the context of economic, cultural, and social fluctuations. He said that volatility is happening every day, so leaders and businesses need to have a strong mentality through constantly touching values that transcend space and time. 

Investing in the "learning" of the team and promoting a learning culture in the business is the solution to upgrade their team, there are countless businesses that understand the importance of L&D strategy but do not know how to plan and implement it effectively.

To have an effective strategy, it is necessary to redefine the roles and competencies of L&D professionals, including all levels from company leaders, human resource leaders and L&D leaders. Leadership capacity is the core factor to successfully implement L&D strategies. 

2.    What is the standard competency framework of HR Professionals?

In addition, Dr. Gian Tu Trung introduced the SHRM framework (SHRM BASK) to the HR community and the L&D community. This is the HR Professional Framework according to global standards developed by SHRM.

it has spent years researching globally the competency framework for the HR profession  

In addition to HR skills and expertise, he emphasized that Leadership, Management, Business and Cultural competencies are the essential skills of HR people need to equip today. This is also the core framework for the successful implementation of L&D strategy in the new context.
