Yesterday the ‘HR Tech Europe’ congress kicked off in London. The event is expected to host more than 1.500 executives and HR-professionals, 65+ speakers and 8 labs, making it the largest technology-driven HR event of its kind in Europe. Six consulting firms will contribute to the event, either as a sponsor or by providing key speakers and demonstrations.
New technological developments such as for instance HR systems, collaborative tools, social media and data analytics are rapidly impacting the way Human Resource (HR) functions operate. For HR-professionals, understanding the role of IT for HR – including its potential and impact on a company’s target operating model – is key for ensuring the HR function is run in the most efficient and service-oriented manner possible. To help HR professionals staying up-to-date with the latest developments, HR-network HRN Europe twice a year organises an event dedicated to HR technology topics.
The spring version of the so-called ‘HR Tech Europe’ series takes place in London, on 24 and 25 March. During the two-day experience attendees will receive an overview of the latest developments in the field of HR Technology, gain insight in new HR solutions and have the opportunity to learn from the experiences of roughly 65 leading HR-experts. More than 1.500 C+ level and HR-professionals are expected to travel to the ExCeL London in Newham to attend the event.
For consulting firms, the congress provides an ideal platform to showcase their thought leadership, expertise and solutions to (potential) clients and learn from best practices from other experts in the field. Four consulting firms have committed themselves as sponsor of the event:
