Yet Again, this year HR technology rocked at the conference in Las Vegas with presence of so many illuminated participants, Innovators, Entrepreneurs and new-age startups in particular. More announcements and announcements, product releases about new features, mergers and acquisitions, finest wines, latte and VIP lounge meetings, all about HR interestingly, we have to admit. HR would completely overhaul the entire workforce processes to acquaint better for future generation workers needs.

Here is our best pick:

  1. Transformation- Today’s HR is on a transformational journey towards a more strategic role rather than just being a payroll function. In words of John F. Hansen, vice president of HCM, HR needs to be a bigger part of Enterprise resource planning, moving to shared service centres having specialized functions. HR now has to contribute to revenue discussions, output enhancements and ideas about the companies growth and prospects. HR should also face towards the challenges, stopping company to grow. The whole idea is to identify the key employees for the company and keep them for long.
  2. Social Media – The waves of change have come and probably Social is the biggest thing for today’s generation. We tend to spend more time online than to sleep and even look for work over there. Recruiters need to have a better understanding of target audience via social and see what they are looking for. The best way today to capture millennial’s interest is to improve visibility online. The cheapest way of Employer Branding today is undoubtedly online, and that’s where companies can save millions and builds a name of its own.
  3. Standardized Processes- Hiring managers and Recruiters today seek strong collaboration to source candidates online and streamline hiring workflows but that can’t be done till the time processes are streamlined. Today HR applications should be extremely easy to use and integrate, modern in terms of approach and ideal addition to candidate experience.
  4. Predictive- Companies are getting smarter and making informed decisions based on data accumulated over the period. Do you know? HR can benefit from data-driven insights that will help businesses solve important issues and enhance productivity on a large scale. If machine learning and artificial intelligence can provide us insights, then we must use it for deriving business outcomes easily. We must get people, processes, and technology for improving the landscape of our organizations and Predictive help us achieve that.

  5. Matching Software- LinkedIn recruitment new product closely matches profiles of people they already know and like, job matching software has come to its prime most importance now. Recruiters can become more competitive by being specific in their search and using semantic for latest advances in searching. We need a host of algorithms to get critical information first in front of eyes while keeping the talent standards high.

With more people changing jobs next year, this can be a pretty handsome tool to watch-out.

The best thing about these conferences is, you are displayed how technology is being used to solve real-world problems and how they impact business businesses with what’s next expected. A must-have for every HR practitioner.

Indeed, HRtech is the event you should look for if you want to get up-to-speed about everything on HRtech. Be ready to delve into the future of technology in HR and network with industry stalwarts, practitioners and experts. The event was huge success with 20% more attendance in 2015 leading to record-breaking attendance for the sixth year in a row.

Looking forward to the next year conference on October 4-7, 2016 at MCCORMICK PLACE, CHICAGO. Till then, let’s meet and discuss trends in tech, culture, and tools within the HR space.

Wow, you sure got a lot more out of that than me. Maybe I should stop taking briefings and start actually checking out stuff without 5 PR and product guys in suits talking me through it in theory. Great post.
