    AGILE BANK HR LEADERS IN A DIGITAL AGE

    The Covid-19 pandemic has emphasised in organisations the role of HR and Learning and Development practitioners who have been responsible for the implementation of remote working operations and safety protocols with the goal of (i) ensuring business continuity (ii) continuous learning and (ii) protecting the health and safety of staff. It has affirmed how central and important they are for the success of contemporary organisations and how essential they will continue to be in a post pandemic future.

    The Agile Bank HR Leaders in a Digital Age programme will provide the latest industry insights and practices as well as tools in helping participants to navigate talent management in the new era of digital transformation and build a new agile work culture. Through discussions with academic scholars and HR leaders from the banking industry and global consulting work, they will learn how digital technology can equip them to be Technology Proponents and digital facilitators in their own organisations. They will also be able to enhance their knowledge in managing multi-generational employees and carrying out recruitment and onboarding in a hybrid work culture.

    This unique programme specially designed for senior level HR and Learning and Development professionals in the financial services industry will be delivered over one week in Bologna, Italy. Classes will be held at the Bologna Business School, which is part of the University of Bologna, the oldest university in the Western world. The overall learning will be done via classroom style, with a mix of interactive sessions, case studies, industry talks and workshops. There will also be sharing of experiences through networking engagements which include a company visit to the Headquarters of Lamborghini and dinner talk by a well-regarded leader in innovation and digital transformation.

    The Agile Bank HR Leaders in a Digital Age programme was developed by the Asian Banking School in collaboration with one of the top business schools, the Bologna Business School (BBS). The week-long curriculum draws from the BBS’ leading edge Masters in HR & Organisation programme which is recognised by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). SHRM is the largest human resources organisation in the world; operating for over 70 years with over 300,000 members worldwide.

    Introductory meeting by the Programme Directors to present the course schedule, vision, different lectures and project work.

    10:00 - 13:00 : The Role of HR in the New Banking Era
                           : Leveraging on the Digital Culture
    In this session, we will focus on what is culture and why it is important, before we move on to understanding the role of HR in the new era and the importance of digital transformation, specifically how HR can promote that change. We will look at case studies and understand how the best HR functions are using “continuous listening” strategies to improve their organisation.

    This will be followed by a session on the HR Digital Landscape and learn how to assess, test, and implement “digital tools” to best effect. The session will close with a look at leadership and understanding what type of leadership is important for a digital culture to thrive and what you can do to ensure that it thrives across your teams. 
    14:00 - 17:00 : Cross-Culture and Organisational Communication
    How do you thrive in a culturally diverse world by transforming such diversity into a source of value? This session addresses this question by providing participants with conceptual models and tools to navigate cultural differences and reconcile diverging logics and expectations. Specifically, we will focus on the differences in value orientations across cultures and explore how such differences impact leadership, group effectiveness and negotiations.
    17:00 - 18:30 : Industry Talk - Meet a HR Practitioner
    This special industry session will have Silvia Cassano, Head of Human Resources at ING Italia sharing her insights and experiences with participants.
    TUESDAY, 13 SEPTEMBER 2022

    09:00 - 12:00 : HR as the “Technology Proponent”

    In the last 2 years of working through a pandemic, it has become very clear how the role of HR is critical in building the human spirit of technology. As we face huge societal, organisational and working culture shifts, clear trends have emerged such as the great resignation and the great reskilling. To navigate these changes, technology can be used to help the organisation. New HR technology will be instrumental in supporting productivity, building a consumer grade employee experience and providing platforms for people to take active ownership of their career and personal development, while attracting and retaining the right talents irrespective of traditional constraints such as work location and job descriptions.
    12:00 - 13:00 : Launch of the Project Work
    In this session, participants will be briefed on the “Project Work” that they will need to do in teams and apply the knowledge and skills learnt in their real organisational setting.
    14:00 - 17:00 : Learning by Example - Company Visit
    For this session, participants will have an opportunity to visit “Automobili Lamborghini” Sant’Agata Bolognese, which is the headquarters for the world famous Italian brand and manufacturer of luxury sports cars to meet with their HR and transformation practitioners, exchange experiences, lessons learned, viewpoints and ideas.
    Note: This visit is subject to the evolution of the pandemic and the company’s restrictions during this period
    Evening : Welcome Dinner with Guest Speaker
    This dinner will be held at a renowned Italian restaurant to give participants the full Italian experience and the opportunity for social engagement and networking with the Programme Directors and other representatives from the Bologna Business School. Piergiorgio Grossi, Chief Innovation Officer of Credem Bank will be the guest speaker at the dinner. Before Credem Bank, he was Chief Information and Digital Transformation Officer at Ducati, has had a long experience in Ferrari F1 and Iconsulting where he cofounded “indyco” and “Better Decisions”. He was also the cofounder of “ImpactHub Reggio Emilia”, is a Board Member at Credemtel and involved in several innovation related initiatives.
    WEDNESDAY, 14 SEPTEMBER 2022
    09:00 - 13:00 : Building Resilience and an Agile Work Culture
                           : Case Study on a leading European Bank

    In the previous session, digital transformation is examined from the outside, linking banking's service and product outputs with market demands and digital and technological inputs. This session looks at digital transformation from the organisational point of view. 'Digital', as a participatory layer of web-based media that allows users to self-select their own experiences and affords the organisation the ability to bridge media, gain feedback, iterate their service and build and activate relationships, indicates that building a true digital enterprise requires significant internal transformation. For example, it requires opening up your institution to the right kind of innovation and nurturing the right kind of culture and people. It is as much about relationship and service management as about technology.

    14:00 - 17:00 : People Analytics and HR Predictive Models
                           : People Analytics Lab Workshop

    As this session’s title suggests, People Analytics is in itself an empirical approach to HR-related data analysis to inform organisational HR judgments and decisions. This session aims to deliver the foundation of what People Analytics is and how to manage organisational systems and data to enhance the essential aspects of empirical and predictive analytics. The lab workshop will then provide participants (even without any statistical knowledge) with the tools needed to run essential predictive analysis on HR-related data autonomously.

    17:00 - 18:30 : Industry Talk - Innovation in Banking Processes: The CRIF Case
    This special industry session will have Loretta Chiusoli (HR Manager), Simone Lonati (Managing Director Asia, CRIF) and Lamberto Barbieri (Director at CRIF) sharing insights into the CRIF experience. CRIF is a global company specialising in credit bureau and business information, and credit solutions. Established in 1988 in Bologna (Italy), CRIF has an international presence, operating over four continents (Europe, America, Africa and Asia).
    THURSDAY, 15 SEPTEMBER 2022

    09:00 - 13:00 : Recruitment and Onboarding in the Digital Age

    In this section, we will discuss the role of technology in favouring two important HR practices: recruitment and onboarding. More specifically, we will discuss challenges and opportunities arising from the new digital era related to the recruitment of personnel and the importance of welcoming employees in a way that can enable them to feel welcomed and capable of expressing their own potential and talent.

    14:00 - 17:00 : Learning to Enable Agility

    This module will focus on the role of leaders in achieving strategic agility in organisations. Research by McKinsey & Company in 2015 showed that true agility requires both speed and stability. Leaders have a crucial role in enabling speed and stability, as well as removing the barriers to them. In particular, we will explore how a purposeful, transformational and coaching style of leadership will be needed to accelerate the shift in an organisation’s culture towards strategic agility.

    17:00 - 18:30 : Industry Talk - Meet a HR Practitioner

    This special industry session will have Luca Bauckneht, Chief People Officer at FAAC sharing his insights and experiences with participants. Fabbrica Automatismi Apertura Cancelli (FAAC) was founded in 1965 and immediately became synonymous with automation for gates all around the world. FAAC GROUP currently consists of 32 commercial companies in 24 countries, 18 production sites in 15 countries and 3 business units.

    Evening : Farewell Dinner

    Before the programme ends, one of the traditions of the ABS International Programmes is to have a farewell dinner for participants to wrap up the week.
    FRIDAY, 16 SEPTEMBER 2022
    09:00 - 13:00 : Talent Management in the New Era of Digital Transformation
                           : A Focus on Compensation and Reward
    Digitalisation has radically transformed the way work is organised as well as the main features of the employment relationship. At the same time, Digitalisation offers new possibilities for monitoring individual and collective performances. Traditional performance appraisals fail to measure what is now expected from talented workers (innovation, cooperation, creativity, risk taking), do not contribute to give timely relevant feedback workers need, and rewards techniques can no longer focus on classical practices such as monetary incentives and career upwards opportunities. This session will be dedicated to comment on the limitations of traditional HRM practices and to explore emerging HR practices in leading digitalised companies.
    14:00 - 15:30 : Diversity and Inclusion: A Focus on Managing New Generations
    This session will delve into the managing of diversity in the workforce with a particular focus on age. This topic will be tackled in an intersectional perspective, taking into account other significant elements related with diversity in the workplace. The following topics will be treated: ageing, ageism, prejudices and stereotypes, strategies for well-being and participation with particular view to differences related with age and gender.
    15:30 - 17:00 : Realisation of the Project Work
    The final session of the week will have participants putting the knowledge acquired in the programme into practice to develop Digital and Agile (D&A) HR leaders. The projects must be grounded in the participant’s work realities.

    ABOUT BOLOGNA

    Bologna is the capital city of the Emilia Romagna region and is the seventh largest city in Italy. Known for its towers and long “portici” (covered arcades), it has a beautiful historic center, one of the most well preserved and extensive in Italy. The porticoes are part of the UNESCO World Heritage List.

    The city, whose first origins date back to at least the first millennium BC, was an important urban centre first under the Etruscans and the Celts, then under the Romans then again, in the Middle Ages, as a free municipality. The city is an important junction for road and rail communications in northern Italy and is home to prestigious companies and cultural, economic and political institutions. In 2000, it was named the “European capital of culture” and since 2006 it has been known as the “city of music”. Many also consider Bologna’s food to be among the best in Italy.
