The Novaturient Foundation, a non-profit organisation has commenced a month-long virtual programme to empower professional Human Resource (HR) leaders and create an environment that enhances productivity at work places amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
The event was to give opportunity for HR professionals, people managers and business leaders to interact and learn from each other and become better at their practice, preparing, shaping and transforming their organisations.
