For those who work in or regularly interact within the HR technology space, it may be tempting to assume that all HR practitioners are well-versed in and understand both the value and limits of workplace technology. That in the year 2018, when we all interact with all sorts of technology platforms in our daily lives outside of work, that we would all be fluent in technology inside the workplace, and that the importance of embracing how technology can transform the workplace as we move toward the future, balanced with a keen understanding of and respect for what it can and cannot do would be top of mind for all HR professionals.

Organizations spend a lot of time and resources creating a winning employment brand and candidate experience. But once an employee tenders their resignation … well, they’re toast. It’s time for companies to view former employees differently and create an offboarding experience that will benefit the company’s talent acquisition and development strategies. This talk will explain why organizations should consider developing formal offboarding programs along with five activities to get your program started.

Even in this day and age, numerous job seekers — and even your own employees — remain digitally disconnected. They either don’t have email addresses, cannot navigate the internet or eschew SMS. It’s true! This digital divide crosses generations, geographies and industries and it’s about much more than tech-aversion. Sharing real-world examples from her experience in various industries, Robin Schooling will discuss how HR technology innovators can understand the needs of the often-forgotten worker and effectively disrupt those who have not yet been disrupted. Find out more about her discussion "Bridging the Digital Divide in the Workplace" on Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at 11:30 - 11:50 AM and on the HR Technology Conference website: http://ow.ly/1Ef730kt173
HORSHAM, Pa., April 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Acknowledging the significant innovations and funding trends in the HR tech category, this year’s HR Technology Conference & Exposition® is adding its first annual “Pitchfest” event. From the founders of the HR Global Alliance® that extends to more than 45,000 HR executives across three continents, the world’s largest event dedicated to HR technology will take place September 11 – 14, 2018 at The Venetian Las Vegas.

HR departments are under more pressure than ever before to attract qualified talent, keep employees engaged and provide career development opportunities. As a result, a new generation of HR technology companies has emerged and with them, substantial investment dollars. The proliferation of artificial intelligence and other technologies are further accelerating innovation.

The extent of product and services innovation from startups worldwide is staggering. Our Pitchfest event gives them the chance to showcase their early-state solutions in front of HR Tech’s audience of angel investors, VCs, HR leaders, industry influencers and more, giving them unprecedented exposure at an early stage.”
