New Age Managers- Post Pandemic

JIMS organised a Guest Session on “New Age Manager- Post Pandemic” for the students of PGDM-Retail Management, batch 2020-22 on 3rd December, 2020. The resource person was Mr. Vikul Goyal, Corporate Trainer. He is a sales professional with over 17 years of experience with progressive roles in leading different Marketing projects. 
Mr. Goyal discussed the impact of coronavirus in the professional world. The onset of COVID-19 pandemic has presented the world with perplexing challenges that are going to have a lasting impact on the way we live and work. Even before the outbreak of the pandemic, the adoption and evolution of technology, working models and customer behaviour was disrupting the workforce. However, the pandemic has intensified the use of new-age technology tools. Mr. Vikul Goyal highlighted that according to the World Economic Forum, almost one-third of all jobs worldwide will likely be transformed by technology in the next decade. This is pushing the talent management teams to reimagine the HR practices, strategies, and learning models. In the hope to move towards a better world post the COVID-19 era, the organizations and their workforce need to change their existing mindset. Considering the present scenario, talent leaders and managers will have to realize the need for re-evaluating the organizations’ goals and employees’ existing skillset to make informed and knowledgeable decisions. Additionally, they will have to focus on nurturing the workforce to make them resilient when the pandemic subdues. He  also talked about how one needs to anticipate change at all time and keep learning and up skilling themselves. As Companies are now looking for people who are multi-talented, specialised job importance have reduced a little due to pandemic.
After the session, Mr Goyal interacted with students and Q&A round was conducted. One interesting question asked by a student was “what is the one skill that everyone needs to have post pandemic”?
Mr. Goyal very righty answered “Perseverance”. 

The session was not a lecture but more of an interaction between students and faculty.
