News of UNAIR Postgraduate School, 30 Jul 2021- The Postgraduate School of Universitas Airlangga (UNAIR) in collaboration with Suara Sidoarjo held a routine webinar for the AIRLANGGA FORUM program on Friday, July 30, 2021. This webinar comes with the topic, POST-PANDEMIC GLOBAL HUMAN RESOURCES (HR) PORTRAIT. Present as speakers were professors, including Badri Munir Sukoco, Fendy Suhariadi, Subagyo Adam, Jusuf Irianto, Cholichul Hadi, and Suryanto. Acting as a moderator in the event, namely Suparto Wijoyo, represented by Prawitra Thalib.
Badri mentioned that the economic recession due to COVID-19 is predicted by experts to last a long time and result in additional unemployment due to laid-off employees. In addition, according to Bisnis.com, the unemployment rate in Indonesia is predicted to rise to 7.35% in August 2021. The World Economic Forum believes that there is a need for global reskilling of human resources. The impact of COVID-19 on HR is that they will demand flexibility in their work and are not bound by time.
Meanwhile, Fendy explained that management during a crisis includes handling quickly, determining facts, telling stories on the ground, and then fixing the problem. He argues that people tend to get mad toward the government because the pandemic problem has not been resolved until now. This can be overcome with a human behavior approach, which requires help from others, such as support from colleagues, superiors, and family. In a pandemic situation, human resources need peace of mind in working through guaranteeing security for the dangers of a pandemic.
As with Irianto, he emphasized that digital technology is a necessity during a pandemic, while the ability of small business actors or SMEs is very limited in knowledge of digital technology. This is a challenge for the government through several ministries to overcome this problem so that SMEs can advance to class. In line with this, Suryanto stated that there is a need for a super team and resilience in living an economic life. Great humans cannot live alone and need a team to be able to look super in performance, so they can be resilient and adapt to the times.
