The HR Congress: Tech Fest - HR Tech & Innovation Virtual Summit
29-30 September, Online
Research by Josh Bersin finds that we’re experiencing a major disruption of the $40 billion-plus HR technology market as companies move from “HR tech” to “work tech” and seek ways to improve employee experiences for all areas of work.
Driven by the pandemic, every company is reinventing the way people work, radically changing technology needs and expectations to meet our new reality. This disruption speaks to the emergence of a vocally employee-centric workplace.
In recent years the entire HR technology market has been shifting from systems of record to systems of design, which enables HR and IT departments to create flexible, AI-driven, productive experiences for employees in every role.
In the modern enterprise collaboration is one of the most critical aspect of success. Person-to-person communication and interactions are vital to business success—especially when people are working physically apart and work processes are rapidly changing. Companies need seamlessly integrated platforms to make employees productive, engaged, and happy throughout their career journeys.
To answer these mighty challenges, The HR Congress created TechFest
The summit is structured in a way that enables participants to connect, engage, and get inspired about how smart HR Tech is able to enable critical problem-solving.
However, just like at an in-person conference, some of the best discussions happen in an unstructured way, therefore we have included several opportunities to engage through networking, round table discussions and lounge sessions to further discuss and connect with like-minded senior HR leaders from literally around the world.
So, we hope you can join us for two amazing days on 29-30 Sept to Connect, Engage, and Get Inspired.
