HKIB CPD / SFC CPT: Morning session: 3.5 hours and Afternoon session: 3 hours

We are in a "New Normal" environment where changes happen faster, have farther reaching impact and are less predictable. More than just economics, this includes technological advancement, regulatory change, customer behavior, competitive landscape etc. Financial institutions must preemptively adopt new business and operating models to cope with these challenges.

With the theme "Reshaping Banking For the New Normal", this year’s HKIB Annual Banking Conference will look at how banks can prepare for these challenges and find a new formula to obtain sustainable, resilient growth. With a main plenary session in the morning and specialized streams in the afternoon, the event is specifically tailored for mid-senior level banking professionals looking for macro views and actionable takeaways. This flagship event will attract over 600 delegates including bankers from Mainland China and Macau.

This year's event will continue to look at the most pressing issues of the industry with an interactive programme that provides impartial and high-quality content.

The HR Congress 2015

Date: 8 October 2015 (Thursday)
Time: 9:15am – 4:45pm
Venue: The Ballroom, 18/F, The Mira Hong Kong, Tsimshataui


The HR Congress 2015 is co-organised by CTgoodjobs.hk (CT), Hong Kong’s leading recruitment platform under Hong Kong Economic Times Group, and the Centre for Human Resources Strategy and Development, Hong Kong Baptist University (CHRSD).

This year marks the fourth anniversary of the event, in which HR professionals and business executives together share insights into workforce and talent management in Hong Kong. Over 800 delegates attended the event last year. Please also visit the event page at cthr.hk/CTgoodjobs-HR-Congress-2014/ for a more detailed recap.

With working overtime being one of the most prevalent phenomenon in Hong Kong, and where flexible working hours, privilege allowances and employee benefits, etc. are more of a deciding factor for job seekers while choosing a job, this provided inspiration for the theme of event this year.

To understand how different industries react to such challenges, a survey on “Standard Working Hours, Overtime Working Hours and Flexible Working Practices” (關於「標準工時」、「工時過長」和「彈性僱聘模式」僱主意見調查) will be jointly conducted by CT and the CHRSD. Results of the survey will be shared during the Congress.
