    Session Descriptions

    Keynote Speech

    Speech I

    Theme : Human Resources Development for Sustainable Growth

    The Global Financial Crisis have caused economic recession and reinforced social instability and conflict in many countries. In the U.S. and Europe, a large number of people blamed inept government policies and increased gap between super-rich and poor. Likewise, issues related to economic inequality and public distrust towards the leadership became more serious in Korea.?Especially, after the recent Sewol Ferry Tragedy, Koreans show intensified distrust in our society as they witnessed that people in responsibility had no sense of ethics, self-sacrifice to protect our citizens but only had greed and selfishness. Most of the Korean citizens considered these incidents as characteristics of underdeveloped countries, and suggested that the Korean society has overlooked significance on humanistic education and moral responsibility, but only focused on rapid economic growth for the past few decades. In light of that, we decided a main theme for this year’s 9th?Global HR Forum as Human Resources for Trust and Integration, hoping that we can make an opportunity to discuss the ways to train and educate future talents who have solid moral foundation and can hold our society together. Korea needs human resources that can resolve deep-rooted regionalism, generation gap and class inequality and prepare for the Korean reunification in the future.

    During this session, President Jim Yong Kim will speak about the problem of distrust and fragmentation that runs rife in society and the progress of other nations' efforts in curbing this problem, and?how much effort nations have put into talent development with the goal of increasing trust and social cohesion.

    Speech II

    Theme : The Science of Trust

    This session reviews, "The Science of Trust" in the context of couple relationships, including the physiology of trust and betrayal, and the mathematics of trust and betrayal. Recent research from John Gottman`s laboratory will be reviewed that leads to a precise definition of trust.  Dr. Gottman will also talk about a new empirically-based theory of trust, how to create trust in love relationships, and how it is sometimes possible to heal from betrayal.  This presentation is geared towards a clinical audience and is based upon Dr. Gottman’s latest books, ‘The Science of Trust’ and ‘What Makes Love Last? How to Build Trust and Avoid Betrayal’.

    Sessions 1

    Theme : Lecture on Successful Leadership by Global CEOs

    Due to accelerated globalization and intensified competition within the global market, multinational companies need talented leaders who can successfully manage regionalization and internationalization, centralization and de-concentration of their business simultaneously in order to become winners. In addition, further development of distinguished strategies and prosperity on using their collective knowledge, skills and human capitals are required for those transnational companies. In this session, CEOs from the prestigious global companies will speak about their experiences in successful business practices, and share ideas on possible challenges in creative economy and strategies to improve international competitiveness.

    Sessions 2

    Theme : New Paradigms for Future Universities

    The importance of higher education that cultivates creative future talents who can actively prepare for the future society is growing more and more. In Korea, the average 70 percent of high school graduates enter the universities, and thus universities have grown without any difficulties on attracting students or necessity to innovate their system for many years. However, Korean universities now face challenges, such as a decrease in number of high school graduates, globalization of higher education and transference from industrial society of mass production to knowledge-based society of high-value products. Hence, they have to make efforts to transform in education and research in order to keep up with the new transition to the future society. The Korean government has also pursued various policy measures to enhance the competitiveness of universities to the global level. Top global universities have achieved global competency through innovation in their education and research system. They have influence on changes in countries and companies as well. In this session, presidents of prestigious universities will introduce their experiences of innovation in higher education, and discuss strategies to enhance the competitiveness of universities.

    Sessions 3

    Theme : Youth Start-ups and Job Policies

    Between 2004 and 2013, youth employment rate in Korea has decreased from 45.1% to 39.7%. Its main reason was a drastic decline of employment in the age of early 20s. The government has been developing various types of solutions, especially of which encourage youth start-ups, as it is very likely to lower the youth unemployment rate and promote job-oriented growth.

    Based on this background, this session will cover the successful cases of foreign governments’ job creation policies and possible solutions for current job market issues in Korea.

    Special Sessions

    Sessions 1

    Theme : Technology, Demography and the Future of the Workforce

    Technological breakthroughs over the next few decades, including unprecedented lifespan longevity, mass utilization of 3-D printing, artificial intelligence, robotics and dramatically increased computing capacities, and the possibility of implanted electronic devices, offer the possibility of disruptive transformation in the workforce. What impact will technology have on the workforce? Will demography, such as significant population growth in sub-Saharan Africa and increased labor mobility worldwide, matter in shaping the new workforce? Kenneth Weinstein, President of the Hudson Institute, will try to give answers to these questions. He will also share his opinion on what will matter for the workforce a half-century from now.

    Theme : Forging a new path for jobs into our symbiotic future

    Over the past decades, the sounds of the future has transitioned from people and animals, to people and machines, to people and their information. But during the coming decades, the sounds of the future will go both ways. Not only will we be creating our future, but our future will be creating us. And that's where our future jobs come into play. As tiny humans we find ourselves battling everything from the giant forces of nature, to challenges on the subatomic level. But in our symbiotic future we will be using technology to build awareness, and using this awareness to amplify our existence, as opposed to constantly fighting for survival. The world’s famous futurist, Dr. Thomas Frey will suggest a new path for jobs, a path never before taken, into what can only be considered the bravest of all possible futures.

    Sessions 2

    Theme : Keys to Making Better Decisions

    The past decades have seen a wealth of research on decision making, much of it conducted by cognitive psychologists. We know that people are not the perfectly rational beings as so often described in economic theory from the times of Adam Smith. Their judgments and choices are prone to predictable errors, or biases. We face different kinds of decisions in life. Some resemble the laboratory experiments which have helped isolate the mechanics of human cognition, capturing them in neat settings where there is no need to influence outcomes and performance is absolute.  Some of the most important and consequential decisions, however, are entirely different:  not only can decision makers influence outcomes, but they must take action in order to outperform rivals.  It is here that strategic managerial decisions are found. Once we recognize these different dimensions, we can help take appropriate action. Professor Phil Rosenzweig will suggest two keys for better decisions.

    Theme : Connected Learning: Redesigning Education for the Masses

    What's the difference between learning and education? Knowing that answer has the power to unlock the potential in each of us and our organizations. To build better teams, we need to shift our focus away from merely producing "college-ready graduates," and toward fostering young adults with the abilities to create, innovate, and think critically. We need to reinvent education, not just for today, but for hundreds of years into the future.

    Today's young professionals are unprepared for the types of jobs that await them. They're products of an education system that teaches them to conform instead of creating new paths forward. As the world's problems become more complex, businesses need employees who will challenge the status quo, discover new opportunities and implement creative solutions.

    This presentation will help you connect the dots by taking you on a journey through education paradigms and revealing a new way forward. You’ll learn how companies are using digital technology to reinvent learning for a new generation, with a focus on open platforms, project-based learning and real-world skills.

    Sessions 3

    Theme : Mind the Gap! War of Talents for UK Universities: Strategic Leadership,
        Integrity and Student Engagement

    Authors in “An avalanche is coming: Higher education and the revolution ahead (Michael Barber, Katelyn Donnelly, Saad Rizvi, March 2013)” argued whether a university will continue to be seen as good value, given the remorseless rise in the cost of a university education over recent decades.  Students with the growing anxiety around the world are concerned about youth unemployment.  Competition between universities around the world has been intensifying for decades, and now they fight for talents and research funding. There is no such thing as standardised degrees or modes of delivery.  Several university models have been developed to realise true value of education, distinctiveness and relevance to the market.  This session provides a different strategy that has been taken by five UK universities to meet the needs of the students, market and technology.  It also suggests critical roles of leadership, integrity of university and its relationship with students and the region of operation.

    Track A


    Theme : Global Citizenship Education

    We are now required to cope with various types of global issues such as climate change and population growth, and build borderless strategies for sustainable development and balanced use of resources. This requires us to become global citizens who believe in values of peace, justice, humanism, respect, cultural diversity and coexistence, understand a strong correlation between the current global issues and ones’ own communities, and actively join social activities in order to solve these issues. In this regard, global citizenship education has same goal with Korean government’s educational policies such as “Education for Happiness” and “Education for Character-building”. This session will examine current status of global citizenship education in Korea and overseas, and discuss the best ways for educating our students as future global citizens.


    Theme : Cornerstone for Trust: Safe and Reliable Education

    The importance of nurturing social members who understand the dignity of life and share common values of communities has been increased especially in current globalized, technology-advanced and diversified social atmosphere. Without thorough protection against possible accidents, school violence and diseases, it is very likely for our students to be exposed to danger, and not to trust our social system but to act for self-interest. Indeed, school education that puts safety as one of its priorities is a cornerstone of trust and sense of community. In this session, speakers and discussants will introduce the cases in other countries of which protect their teenage students from violence and accidents, and also discuss how we all can make safe and reliable environment in which our students to learn and grow.


    Theme : Start-up Education for Creative Talents in Korea

    Major advanced countries encourage start-up education as a national task, and actively foster young entrepreneurs with creative and challenging inspiration. Korea also tries to discover and develop human resources with talent and passion in order to construct creative economy. On this point, we expect this session to be a great opportunity to explore the start-up education and overall start-up venture policies in other countries. This session, in addition, will cover successful cases of young entrepreneurs that were trained by the start-up education, and discuss how government, universities, and companies work together to build effective Korean-customized start-up education methods.


    Theme : Work Ethics for the Society of Trust and Integration

    The jobs and work environments have changed rapidly in 21st century post-industrial society, and work ethics is now one of the most significant qualities required to obtain sustainable social development. In particular, many of recent heavy crimes and catastrophic accidents are ascribed to the deficiency of work ethics of people who are in charge. In this session, speakers will lecture and discuss how to build and maintain strong work ethics, and step forward to the society of trust and integrity.

    Track B


    Theme : Aging Workforce and Productivity

    Korea is now one of the most fast-aging societies in the world. The retirement age of private sector employees will be raised up to 60 as the new Minimum Retirement Age Bill passed the National Assembly last year, and the number of executive-levels in Korean companies has increased a lot recently. This social phenomenon changes the individuals’ perspectives on their job, and a large number of Korean companies try to cope with the aging work population with strategies such as upgrading work training system, improving work environment, and encouraging flexible work hours. Speakers and Discussants in this session will talk about ways to maximize the use of the elderly human resources at workplace, maintain their work-related skills and qualities, and adopt appropriate evaluation/reward methods in order to motivate them.


    Theme : Social Network and Paradigm Changes in Recruiting

    According to the result of ‘Social Recruiting Survey 2013’ published by Jobvite, a famous recruiting platform for the social web, 94 percent of recruiters in U.S. use social media - such as LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter - in recruitment efforts. This session will cover the paradigm changes in recruiting caused by the social network services, and the speakers will also discuss pros and cons of traditional recruiting methods and the new social recruiting methods, and how companies select recruiting system that fits best for their own.


    Theme : How to Recruit and Manage Key Human Resources

    Identifying and making use of human resources plays even more decisive role in the success of a business, especially after the global financial crisis. As such, businesses are making significant efforts to increase their hiring expertise. After the high expenses and efforts on recruiting process, companies also have difficulties in managing their employees. In that, it is not only difficult to attract and select excellent talents but also needing much effort to train, motivate and retain them.

    In this session, speakers will share their know-how on recruiting/managing key human resources and discuss the ways to avoid miss-matching between the recruitment and management process.


    Theme : Competency-based Society Where Challengers Can Succeed

    The core driver of national competitiveness in the era of creative economy is creative talent. Creative talent refers to those who fearlessly pursue their dreams by converging their field of expertise with diverse experiences and knowledge, creating new jobs and fields along the way. These creative talent needs to be fully supported by allowing them to be employed based on their knowledge, experience, and their achievements, rather than mere academic backgrounds or resumes.

    Korea is taking a step toward becoming a society which merits individuals' competency and achievement by reforming its past customs, culture and practice which solely valued individuals' educational background. Nationwide effort has been made to reorganize the education and training system to focus more on practicality in the workplace, and to make sure that employment, promotion and wages in the workplace are based on individuals' competency and performance.  In this session, we will look into the cases of innovation at both corporate and school levels, and find out the role of our society to facilitate the culture which values individuals’ competency to take root in Korea.

    Track C


    Theme : Creating Jobs for Women

    2013 Korean female employment with 53.9% is the highest level since 2000, but it is still a low level compared with the OECD average of 57.2% (in the 15 to 64 age range, 2012). Especially, women in their 30s’career discontinuity by childbirth and rearing is 52.5% and a third of them haven’t been employed again. Because of childbirth and rearing problems, their economic activity rate with 56.0% is very low level compared with men’s rate with 93.3% although women in their 20s’ economic activity rate with 62.9% overtakes the men’s rate with 62.6%. The women’s career discontinuity is wreaking havoc on the utilization of human resources and wage differentials. In this session, we would like to discuss career maintenance support to create jobs for women and policy plans for customized reemployment support and work family compatibility.


    Theme : Retirement Extension & Jobs for Middle-to-Old Ages

    Proportion of the elder population over the age of 65 out of the total population of South Korea is about 12% currently, and it is expected that the proportion will be more than 20% and Korea enter a super-aging society in 2026. It is presented to the extension of retirement age as a solution to aging society. Behind deferred retirement, there is a concern of delaying economic growth because the baby boomer generation (born in 1955-1963) who has led to the development of the Korean economy starts to retire in earnest. There are different perspectives on the extension of retirement age. In case of middle-aged preparing for their retirement, they are welcome the policy because they can work even one more day. On the other hands, younger people finding jobs are very worried that companies could reduce hiring new recruits and it caused insufficient employment if older generation delays their retirement. Given the rapid rate of aging, it is inevitable to enforce extension of the retirement age. However, there is a concern that it brings out limitation of job creation so other supplement policies should be prepared. In this session, we would like to discuss the employment of middle-aged, extension of the retirement in an aging society, and seek solutions to the reduction of youth employment.


    Theme : Roles of Labor Union for Expanding Jobs

    Entering the 2000s, the advanced employment problem such as ‘jobless growth’ became the conversation topic in Korea. In other words, job creation has become the most important problem in the relations between labor union and management. For job creation, the business communities, labor union and government need to work together to compromise and find consensus. When labor unions play social roles, they can be supported by people. On behalf of this, they need to contemplate carefully what they can do for job creation. Their social influence will be decided whether they find the solution or not. Policy researchers from many countries suggest that the roles of labor unions are to retrain an excessive wage increase and political and violent strike, to reconsider the flexibility of internal labor market, and to innovate workplace.

    In this session, in an era of jobless growth, we would like to discuss the roles of labor unions for improvement of the employment rate.


    Theme : Roles of Government and Companies for Creating Quality Jobs

    Now, the challenges facing Korea are as follows; first, it is experiencing a rapid slowdown in economic growth since 2000s. Intensified competition in key industries, low fertility rate and aging are the main factors behind such sluggish growth. This also contributes to concerns on decreasing economically active population. Second, as enduring job-less growth, the social problem is deepening such as the polarization of businesses and income distribution. Third, youth unemployment became a serious problem and its rate in 2013 reached 2.6 times more than the unemployment rate of all ages. Also, it was founded that the labor force participation rate reached only 71% of all age groups. Job creation policy of the government is directly connected to people’s life and is significantly related to the economic situation of the country and changes in the labor market. In other words, in response to changes in the labor market and the impact of the economic situation, the direction of the job creation policy of the government has to change as it has a direct impact on people’s life. Thus, it is very important to take a look at the changes in the labor market of major countries. In this session, we would like to discuss the role of business and government for job creation.

    Track D


    Theme : The Art of Emotion Coaching

    Emotion coaching is described in Gottman and DeClaire’s ‘Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child’. Emotion coaching is a new approach to parenting that focuses in on moments in a child’s life when he or she is experiencing an emotion as an opportunity for intimacy and teaching. It is an approach to listening to a child and connecting with the child’s inner world. The form of parenting described by Hart & Risley in their powerful book ‘Meaningful differences in the everyday experience of young American Childen (1995)’ was also a form of emotion coaching. Emotion coaching has spurred a great deal of new research. Emotion coaching has now been evaluated and found to be effective in 3 randomized clinical trials by Australian psychologist Sophie Havighurst and has also been found effective in a study in South Korea led by certified Gottman therapist Dr. Christina Choi both in 2 orphanages in Seoul and in Busan. Emotion coaching is now being taught to teachers throughout South Korea.


    Theme : Excellence in Education: Constructing Creative and Innovative Ideas through
       the Art of Asking Questions

    30% of Nobel Prize Awards, Ivy League schools graduates, and 40% of millionaires. Jewish are those people with astonishing accomplishments and they are only 0.2% of the world’s population. The words "father" and "question" are known to be the keywords behind their success as they tell us that Harvard University's essay examination was easier than discussing with their parents on dinner table. Jewish youths grow up discussing and debating fiercely with their fathers. They always raise their hands up confidently to solve their curiosity and confidently express their opinions on peoples’ question. In this session, the CEO of Global Excellence in Israel will introduce the strengths of creative bringing up methods of Jewish, how to apply them in details and the suggestions on how this Jewish education could apply to other countries' education.

    Theme : New Global Trends In MBA Education

    The world's famous MBA schools educate their students upon the idea of that students could develop leadership skills with training rather than being born with a talent. Many graduates from Harvard, Stanford, MIT, and other MBA programs are now leaders such as presidents of countries, global CEOs, CEOs of non-profit organizations, and so forth. What are the secrets of MBA schools’ education in raising their students to become leaders of organizations? In this session the President & CEO of the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) will provide insights into the trends and developments within graduate management education and the areas of future growth.


    Theme : How to Advance K-MOOC

    As the industrial society is giving way to the new era of creative economy, the first challenge that Korea's education faces today is fostering creative talent. The second challenge is reforming the existing high-cost, low-efficiency education model. As the life-cycle of knowledge is becoming ever shorter, the importance of lifelong education is emerging and more emphasis is being put on creative thinking and problem-solving ability over rote learning. That is why the education model needs to keep up with the changes by transforming itself from the previous model of cramming that highly depended on teachers to student-centered and active learning.  

    The New York Times named the year of 2013 as "The Year of the MOOC" following MOOC’s explosive growth, providing quality education for all, wherever they are, at low cost or for free. Witnessing the skyrocketing growth of the MOOC in the US, countries around the world started to develop their own MOOC. For example, edX and Coursera were born in the US, while the UK developed its own FutureLearn. Meanwhile, France and China have decided to use the edX platform by establishing partnership with the US.

    We will discuss the future direction and strategy to develop Korea's own K-MOOC, which includes lifelong and higher education, by observing changes in the global trend.
