The intention of the Congress entitled “Disruptive Management of Human Talent in a Crisis Environment: How can we adapt to the Digital Era?” was to contribute a practical vision of human talent developments and experiences involving the use of innovation and technology to the community of managers of human talent and related areas. The Congress was conducted by means of talks given by experts backed by workshops, group discussions and the presentation of successful financial institution case studies.

For experts, this culture makes it possible to put the organization’s ideas into practice
The other main topics discussed during the talks were leadership in virtual events, culture and change; innovation in the human talent business model; digital transformation in public development banking; application of technology to human talent; and experience implemented, among others.
