Speaking about the relevance of human resources’ (HR’s) roles in this modern world, Shafrie pointed out that the role of HR is very important to bring new talent, new mindset and new perspective in any organisation.
He said that even the top companies in the world put their high focus on HR as the main goal to change the organisation.
Meanwhile, Mohd Khairi Ismayuddin of Talent Acquisition at Tenaga Nasional Berhad in sharing his views at IIUM Career Fair 2019, highlighted skills and talents that need to thrive in the 4th Industrial Revolution as follows:
