2016 is all set to be a year to remember with the Spirit of Entrepreneurship Conference, the 20th NHRD National Conference. HR is in for a change like never before. We are shoulder to shoulder with all departments, keeping pace with rapid business models, altering paradigms and keeping up with pervasive technology and digitisation. We are moving forward, front-line, with an entrepreneurial spirit that steers the goals of our organisations. The time for change is here. Spirit of Entrepreneurship enthuses us to enhance growth, lift productivity and empower teamwork to thrive.
