Embracing HR & HRTECH

Not long ago, HR people were much like high school assistant principals―paper-pushers who kept the building running. Today, these managers focus more on people than on paper and, like skilled teachers, they help both the strugglers and the stars. And in the future? HR will be guiding employees throughout their careers and become more essential than ever to business analytics and strategy.

Tomorrow’s HR leaders will need to be bigger, broader thinkers, and they’ll have to be tech-savvy and nimble enough to deal with an increasingly agile and restless workforce. Technology is freeing up HR to take on bigger-picture matters, making the field more exciting, more demanding and perhaps more competitive as well.

Three Main Topics will guide the conference: Recruitment & Onboarding, Retention & Strategic Management, and Strategic HR & Leadership

TALENT ACQUISITION & CANDIDATE EXPERIENCE

The first track will address how technology impacts recruitment and onboarding. More specifically, this track will dive into areas such as how recruitment processes will change in the digital age, how technological change influence onboarding processes, and why onboarding is more important than ever.

1

TALENT MANAGEMENT & EMPLOYEE EXPERIENCE

The second track will provide valuable insights on how to improve your retention & employee experience. This will include how innovation impacts employee satisfaction, how making your retention efforts more technological will benefit the company, and why measuring employees precisely and correctly are important.

2

STRATEGIC HR & LEADERSHIP

The third track will address how HR executives can improve business performance and develop an organisational culture that will foster innovation and a people-driven competitive advantage. As the new normal is upon us, HR leaders are facing new challenges that must be addressed.
