The Evolution of HR
In an emerging market like Myanmar, investment in human capital development is vital to the success of individual businesses.

Yet, human resource capacity still remains a key challenge to Myanmar’s booming market, particularly in the retail, travel and hospitality sectors – where solid field experience is in high demand.

Recognising this issue, SHRI and the MSHRM have assembled an experienced line-up of local and regional workforce management practitioners, who will guide you through the evolution of human resource management in Myanmar.

Through the sharing of case studies, best practices and technical knowledge, you will walk away with resources – and solutions - you need to create and implement successful HR and business practices that ensure your organisation adapts and thrives in a fast evolving emerging market.

Who should attend?
Senior Managements, HR Personnel, Head of Departments and Managers from the Travel & Hospitality and Retail Sectors.
