Schrodingers Startup: The Paradox Of Preparing For Failure?

The economic climate in Malaysia is dynamic and evolving, with a strong emphasis on digital skills and technological advancements. The career path in Malaysia is also not linear – it is not a straightforward path from point A to B, but rather a curving one that requires adaptability, continuous learning, and a willingness to pivot in response to changing market demands.

Young professionals nowadays are increasingly navigating dual roles, balancing primary jobs with entrepreneurial ventures as backup plans. This shift reflects the uncertainty and opportunities of a post-pandemic world. Meanwhile, HR professionals are tasked with retaining and supporting this new shift in the workforce while redefining traditional concepts like loyalty. 

Our conversation today brings together a young entrepreneur and a seasoned HR specialist to explore how economic conditions, career flexibility, and changing values impact talent management and the modern workforce. 

Let's dive into their insights on managing this dynamic career landscape with Amanda Tan, the Founder of Cxpturing Souls Studios and Pawever Memories, and Gladys De Silva, a Talent Business Partner with Malaysia HR Forum.
