The program of the 2019 Ukrainian Ports Forum, the Ukrainian port industry’s main event that the Ukrainian Seaports Authority (USPA) and the Center for Transport Strategies are organizing for the second consecutive year, has been broadened. The HR conference “Ukrainian Ports: People Development” will be one of the key events at the forum on May 30.

Yulia Klymenko, the vice president for business education at the Kyiv School of Economics, will speak at the HR conference. In her address entitled "How the Role of HR Change in the Era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution," Klymenko will speak about the challenges awaiting the business environment in Ukraine, the inevitable changes, and the measures that need to be implemented now. The participants in the conference will discuss how to survive in the new world and achieve success.

Klymenko believes that technological changes have entered into every aspect of our life, that they are radically changing the rules of the game in business, and that HR teams need to become drivers of technological/digital changes in order to increase the competitiveness of their companies.

Natalya Artsimovich, HR director at Delta Wilmar CIS, will also attend the “Ukrainian Ports: People Development” HR conference.

With 15 years of experience in the field of personnel development (Bunge) and HR management at international companies, Artsimovich believes that such competences as willingness to change, inter-sectoral communication, work under conditions of uncertainty, multiculturalism, and openness will be important for employees in the near future.

As reported earlier, the Ukrainian Ports Forum will take place in Odesa from May 30 to 31. Sustainable development and free shipping in the Azov-Black Sea basin will be discussed with representatives of the European Commission, international financial institutions, governments, and businesses during the forum’s plenary session.
