From breakthroughs to business opportunities, HR technology continues to prove its role in human resources. However, with the deluge of options and ever-expanding concepts today, how should HR pick the technological options that match their organisations and deliver targeted results? At HR Tech Interactive, Asia’s only invitation-only HR technology event for HR leaders, senior HR professionals from Fuji Xerox, Merck, and Motorola will examine the latest HR tools and address the most critical issues in user adoption.

Organised by Human Resources, HR Tech Interactive 2017 is a one-day conference happening in Kuala Lumpur on 12 September, in Singapore on 14 September, and in Manila on 28 September.

“Technology implementation is a major factor in handling new waves of innovation for HR operations and people processes,” said Aditi Sharma Kalra, regional editor of Human Resources magazine. “What HR Tech Interactive 2017 promises is a set of top-notch speakers who will present intelligent discussions, credible studies and proven methods of managing technology.”

HR Tech Interactive 2017 will explore the topics HR research has found to be the most critical for the HR community such as talent analytics, mobile HR strategy, HR cloud, social media, and hiring tools. Some of the speakers joining HR Tech Interactive 2017 are:
