HR technology has never been more important

Innovative technologies enable HR to become leaner, innovative and more strategic, thereby anticipating the future and nurturing a high performance and supportive workplace culture.

The cloud, social media and data analytics are helping HR leaders to transform the human resources function, from traditional back-office services to front-line consulting partner. And a new generation of mobile apps are coming onto the market to enhance performance management, enable personalised mobile learning, assess the engagement of employees and help them achieve a better work-life balance.

With an increasingly digital-native workforce, work-life boundaries are becoming more blurred with flexible ways of working. So the use of smart technologies is critically important in the quest to create a culture that engages high performing employees and helps to attract and develop the best talent.

And HR managers with an eye on the future recognise that artificial intelligence and the automation of HR will inevitably have a truly profound impact.

The HR Technology Forum shows how these innovative technologies can help enable HR transformation and provides a time-effective opportunity for HR leaders and technology providers to meet-up with one another, to explore potential ways of working together.

Prior to the event, each participant uses an online networking service to create their own tailored schedule of conference sessions, workshops, demos and one-on-one meetings, to reflect their own particular interests and objectives.
