The event took place on 26th October at Royal Orchid, Bengaluru and was attended by eminent delegates consisting of over fifty HR heads from the industry.
Winners’ Circle magazine features the views from seasoned HR professionals and influencers in the HR space in Bengaluru. It is a part of the Talent Chronicles – a platform brought together by Paul Writer and Manipal ProLearn to prepare the industry with the necessary talent capabilities.
The event kicked off with a fireside networking session where the delegates interacted and exchanged their thoughts on skill acquisition in the fast evolving corporate environment.
Futuristic Insights from industry experts
This was followed by Jessie Paul, CEO, Paul Writer, providing momentum and direction to the event and emphasizing on the crucial need to stay ahead skill-wise, in the rapidly changing landscape in various career-paths. As new technologies are evolving, skills that one could take pride in, stand a chance of getting irrelevant. This makes it critical for HRs to recalibrate their focus on creating a learning culture that will help the individuals stay ahead of the curve.

Continuous learning is the name of the game
Continuous learning is the key to help organizations and individuals evolve and succeed in dynamic markets as traditional learning and development models are not applicable anymore.
Upskilling and reskilling by imbibing learning as a culture has become the order of any progressive organization that expects to win its day-to-day battles.
Manipal ProLearn addresses the problem at its roots by transforming learning and making it a part of an individual’s and organization’s culture. A step in this direction, the futuristic institute is going to launch a new course on Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning on 24th November 2018 that is aimed at upskilling professionals in these technologies in order to help them stay relevant to the changing needs of organizations. It has been constantly facilitating enterprise-level skill acquisition by offering courses in Data Science, Information Technology and Management.
