International Conference on Human Capital: Workforce renewal in an era of global change

28 – 29 November 2018
Taylor’s University Lakeside Campus
Malaysia

ABOUT ICHC

Taylor’s University is proud to host this International Conference on Human Capital, exploring one of the key drivers of economic growth globally, in ASEAN and in Malaysia.

Universal consensus on the need to build workforce skills to support economic development is reflected in policy documents of international agencies like the OECD, ILO, IMF and World Bank, supra-national regional bodies like ASEAN, APEC and the EU, as well as governments of nation states. All stress the importance of forecasting future skills needs to ensure that education and training systems are suitably aligned with labour market needs to avoid skills gaps, shortages and mismatches. Yet there is still confusion at the practical level as to what constitutes human capital and how best to develop the future and current workforce to meet evolving labour market needs in a period marked by increasing uncertainty and accompanied by profound restructuring. This conference provides an opportunity for academics and representatives of business and government to debate the issues.
