    Mercer Thailand would like to invite you to our annual knowledge-sharing forum on ‘Managing People & Organization in an Age of Disruption’ on Friday, 16 March 2018. This event is a sequel to last year’s forum where we had discussed ‘Future of Jobs and Digital Impacts on HR in Thailand’.

    At this event, we plan to share practical approaches and lessons learnt from organizations we have worked with in the last 12 months to address the challenges of digitization and other disruptive advancements that are shaping our future of work and jobs.


    • Redesigning for a Resilient, Agile and Thriving Organization
    • Planning for a Diverse, Adaptive and Thriving Workforce
    • Engaging and Rewarding for the Well-Being of Thriving Individuals
