Welcome to a SBAS HR Group workshop on the topic of Overcoming the engagement paradox

HR2

Most business and HR leaders would make the case for employee engagement as a key enabler for business success. However, very few companies succeed in creating a culture that engages and where employees feel a higher purpose of belonging. 

The aim of this workshop is to focus on actions, tools, organisation and leadership models that lead to higher degrees of engagement. We would also like to raise the issue of in what ways, the culture of the country where the organisation is operating, adds on to the complexity. The aim is to defeat the paradox, find ways around obstacles and work with you on how to deliver lasting engagement. You would especially benefit from, and add to, this workshop if you are a manager or would like to move into a managerial role, if you are an HR professional or if you are a dedicated member of a team.

Welcome to an SBAS breakfast meeting on Tuesday 30 May 2017

We are very happy to introduce Dr Albert Nussbaum as our guest speaker. Dr Albert Nussbaum is the Managing Director of Mercuri Urval Germany and Professor of Psychology at RWTH Aachen, Germany.

Nussbaum

People decisions: How to make your intuition count!
What role does your instinct play in your hiring decisions? Is it always right?
Identifying and grooming top leaders is tricky and selecting top talents from the crowd is unpredictable.

Dr Nussbaum will address decision makers on the subject of selecting the right business leaders and people that make up the life blood of any organisation. He’ll explore the psychology behind it, the scientific method, and the strong business case for adopting sound and proven leadership selection and talent assessment frameworks.

Invitation

Team Sweden in Southeast Asia is proud to present the inaugural “Sweden–Southeast Asia Business Summit” that will take place in Singapore on the 21–22 of September 2016.

Around 600 Swedish companies across business sectors ranging from service to manufacturing and retail are present in Southeast Asia. The Sweden–Southeast Asia Business Summit aims to attract business leaders and decision makers from Sweden and the region by providing a platform for sharing of best practices on how to do business in this dynamic part of the world.

Southeast Asia is home to more than 650 million people with a rapidly growing middle class. Despite slowing economic growth in China, the Southeast Asian region is estimated to grow at an average of 5 –6 percent annually in the coming decade, making it the growth engine of the world. The newly established ASEAN Economic Community is likely to enhance growth further.

To be competitive in this evolving global market, it is crucial for any CEO or board member to have a clear understanding of the developments in the region. The Sweden–Southeast Asia Business Summit provides an excellent opportunity to get insights from industry peers and policy experts and to meet with potential partners.

The summit will feature key political and business representatives from Sweden, including Mr Mikael Damberg, Minister for Enterprise and Innovation, Mrs. Ylva Berg, CEO, Business Sweden – the Swedish Trade and Invest Council, Mr Marcus Wallenberg, Chairman of the Board, SEB, SAAB Group & Foundation Asset Management, Mr. Magnus Böcker, Executive Chairman of Blibros and former CEO of Singapore Exchange and many more. The summit is a joint effort by “Team Sweden” in Southeast Asia, i.e., the Swedish Embassies, Business Sweden and the business associations and chambers in the respective countries.

We welcome all Swedish businesses in Sweden and the Southeast Asia region to attend this summit!
