Genesis hosted the second edition of the HR Interact, an event that aims to bring together HR professionals from across the UAE. The event proved to be a huge success with a full house.
The seminar took place on Wednesday, 30th September 2015 and featured talks by top HR industry leaders. Attendees were treated to informative sessions and engaging discussions as the event concluded on a high note at the Hilton in Abu Dhabi.
With topics highly relevant to the region on the agenda, it proved to be an excellent platform for HR professionals to discuss the latest trends and issues faced by the industry, network with like-minded counterparts and an opportunity to potentially develop their respective organizations using information acquired from the event.
CEO of AQR International Doug Strycharczyk presented on the importance of Mental Toughness and its relevance in the UAE. The second presentation was by the co-‐founder of Genesis Institute Binod Shankar, which was on ‘Demystifying Numbers’ and revealed why it is necessary for HR professionals to have a working knowledge of the financial aspects of a company. The final talk was by Layla Halabi, a partner at LearnActive. Her presentation struck a chord with the audience as it threw light on the traditional role of HR and was appropriately called ‘Transforming HR’.
Sunny Mahim, an attendee at the event and a career development associate had this to say of the event-‐ “The advertisement of the forum, the follow up for the registration, the warm reception, fantastic topics and very engaging speakers of repute, not to forget the freebies was all very well thought out. It was indeed a Great show”.
Post the triumph of this year’s HR Interact, members of the HR community in the UAE will definitely be delighted at the prospect of attending more events and we at Genesis are pleased to announce that a similar event for HR managers will take place in January 2016 in Dubai!
