The role of Human Resource has moved from the traditional recruitment and workforce placements to a more dynamic culture in overseeing the most important asset of an organisation - its people.
Bank South Pacific (BSP) this week presented its annual sponsorship support of K30,000 to the PNG Human Resources Institute's (PNGHRI) toward the staging of the Annual PNGHRI conference to be held in Port Moresby, Gateway Hotel from the 20th of June, 2019 to the 21st of June, 2019.
With the changing culture of organisations, this year's conference theme is "HR IN THE 4TH INDUSTRIAL, REVOLUTION." The conference will inform the HR fraternity of the Internet of Things (loT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the future of work as we know it," said PNGHRI Council Member, Melissa Gorogo.
Ms Gorogo, when receiving the sponsorship said, "PNGRHI acknowledges the continue support from Bank South Pacific since 2010. The PNGHRI Annual National Conference is an opportunity for all HR Practitioners to share skills and knowledge to improve the management of people."
BSP's Head of Talent Management, Mr. Samuel Kiele added, "BSP sees the importance of all human resource professionals and understands the role we play to ensure that the business gets the most out of its employees while at the same time, have a productive, thriving, and engaged workforce."
