On 23 and 24 October 2014 the ‘HR Tech Europe Amsterdam 2014’ congress will take place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The event is expected to host more than 2.000 executives and HR-professionals, making it the largest technology-driven HR event of its kind in Europe. 12 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 with staying up-to-date with the latest developments, HR-network HRN Europe twice a year organises an event that is dedicated to HR technology topics.
The autumn version of the so-called ‘HR Tech Europe’ series takes place in Amsterdam, on 23 and 24 October. 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 100 leading HR-experts. More than 2.000 C+ level and HR-professionals are expected to travel to the RAI in Amsterdam to attend the event.
