On 27 and 28 October 2015, the ‘HR Tech World’ will take place in Paris, France. The event is the largest technology-driven HR event of its kind and is expected to host executives and HR-professionals from over 80 countries. 14 consulting firms will contribute to the event, either as a sponsor or by providing key speakers and demonstrations.
New technological developments such as 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, 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 stay up-to-date, HR-network HRN organises its ‘HR Tech’ conferences, in both Europe and World editions.
