The HR Conclave 2016 at SP Jain saw HR professionals from the top organisations in the Middle East gather to discuss and share emerging HR trends. This year’s conclave explored best practices to tackle the challenges brought on by today’s ever-changing work environment.
It is aptly said that the quench to do something different drives the creation of trends for many to follow. The seeds to set one such trend in SP Jain, Dubai campus were sown in March 2016. What followed were a couple of meetings and endless efforts of the Corporate Relations Team and the students of Jan 2016 intake to materialise the first ever Inter-Corporate Table Tennis Tournament in SP Jain.

After having passed all the entry tickets, students proceeded to join the rest of the crowd entering the gate, which was an exceptional replica of the St. Basil cathedral in Russia. The students broke into different smaller groups and moved quickly to explore the different ‘corners of the world’. The park was filled not only with masses of different people from different countries, but with well-designed replicas of different national wonders and architecture celebrating the different cultures that were showcased. To mention a few, the Opera House of Sydney, the Taj Mahal of India, and the Eiffel tower of France. The park caters to all, as this tourist destination allocates big sectors for each country to hold different shop stalls.

The postgrad students were very excited and pumped with enthusiasm to visit the Masdar City in Abu Dhabi. Masdar City is a sustainable city located in Abu Dhabi which is known for its green buildings and for following highly efficient environmental standards which also houses the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) Headquarters. The cohort began their trip on a pleasant rainy afternoon. After an hour and a half ride, the students reached the city of Abu Dhabi.
The students reached Masdar City on a chilly and gusty afternoon. The innovative and extraordinary structure of buildings awestruck the cohort and young business leaders could be seen trying to capture these moments by taking selfies. After a warm welcome from the representatives of the Masdar city, the cohort was taken through the timeline of the city and was explained about the chain of events that followed in establishing the Masdar City. The students also got a chance to use the digital artist platform where they got their creative juices flowing.
