· Speech title: The effects of fear of missing out on social media posting preferences

· Abstract: Purpose Fear of missing out (FOMO) has become a common phenomenon on social media. This research aims to examine how FOMO influences consumer preferences for posting about identity-relevant products on social media. In this research, three studies were conducted to explore the effects of FOMO in different real-life situations. Study 1 was conducted in a laboratory setting in China. Study 2 includes two experiments, one that was conducted in China and one in the US. Study 3 was conducted in a workplace setting in China. Findings The results of Study 1 indicate that when consumers experience FOMO, they prefer to post about identity-relevant (vs. functional) products to a greater extent than usual. Study 2 examines the role of self-esteem and identifies self-presentation and the avoidance of social attention as underlying mechanisms. Thus, consumers with high (or low) self-esteem tend to be more motivated to present themselves positively (or to avoid social attention) when experiencing FOMO. Furthermore, Study 3 reveals the moderating role of supportive interactions; that is, the interaction between FOMO and consumer self-esteem is most likely to exert an effect when consumers receive many supportive interactions. Research limitations/implications This research demonstrates that posting identity-relevant content on social media is a coping strategy that individuals may adopt when experiencing FOMO. Moreover, self-esteem can predict how individuals cope with FOMO by identifying self-presentation and avoidance of social attention as the mechanisms underlying effects.

· Speech title: Embracing Fluid Workforce: The Role of HR Agility

· Abstract: As more and more members of younger generations join the workforce, businesses benefit from their original ideas and new viewpoints. As a result, businesses around the world are beginning to go through a significant upheaval. The term "HR Agility" best captures the adaptation and reorientation to a more agile, flexible workplace. Increasing your agility to take on challenges entails adjusting to a fluid workforce dynamic. It won't be simple to make this change, and it'll probably have an impact on talent management, payroll, and all other aspects of human resources. The human resources division should embrace HR Agility by adopting technologies that can make it easier for people to accomplish their jobs and innovating whenever possible. By understanding the comprehensive and useful insights about their employees, organisations may better serve their workforce. Furthermore, businesses who embrace the needs of the modern, more flexible workforce by utilising every technology at their disposal will be in the lead. Subsequently, they will lessen the chances of increased attrition, declines in recruiting, engagement, and productivity, and even problems upholding their reputation as an employer.
