The seminar, with senior business leaders / HR practitioners invited as guest speakers, aims to link approaches to contemporary issues in the business community. As an alumni of the University, and with over 8 years of extensive experience in senior management and talent management and systems, Francis was cordially invited to speak at the seminar and contribute his valuable insights to the graduate programme, while also inspire communication and exchange between fellow alumni and the existing students.
The presentation given by Francis, in the theme of “What can we learn from organisations with effective performance management processes”, featured the latest findings of Lumesse’s research on how performance management processes have improved employee performance, which was conducted among 44 countries and 533 business and HR executives. Francis suggested that HR professionals should support ‘goal alignment’, adopt ‘pay for performance’
“Performance Management is a core HR pillar, and it is not an easy task to carry out good Performance Management practices. HR specialists are suggested to work closely with their internal teams and business constituents and monitor trends in talent management, which in turn helps fine-tume HR processes.” – That was the key message that Francis Chan delivered to the audience comprised of HKBU graduate students and alumni at the seminar.
The seminar presentation also featured role plays, fun quizzes and game tasks to offer participants the opportunity to experience the reality and challenge of a corporate situation. Practical suggestions and recommendations on how to measure employee performance and effective use of people processes and online talent management system were also provided.
Professor Alicia Leung, Programme Director of Master of Science in Strategic Human Resources Management, noted, “I am glad to have invited Francis to share his experiences and practical cases with our students and alumni. His inspiring seminar has created a real life interactive platform for our students and alumni and enabled them to keep pace with the latest HR market trends.”
