The major trend was enhancement of HR competencies and self development!
Anna Vlasova and Renata Chuchmai emphasized that HR managers had to understand Self, develop and learn how to function in the period of quick, constant changes. In this way the HR manager would assist the business to quickly adjust to HR challenges in the turbulent market. “First the crisis starts in managers’ heads, not in the business”.
Irina Gnutova analyzed main trends of the HR market and pointed out problems faced by HR managers. “The new turbulent environment calls for complex knowledge and new competencies to be mastered by HR specialists”
