BASF, Danfoss, and Johnson Electric disclose HR tech strategies

The impact of technology on the human resources spectrum is best understood through real-life case studies, the perspectives of different industries, and expert insights from highly accomplished HR professionals.

These will all be delivered at HR Tech Interactive, the regional invitation-only HR technology event for HR leaders and senior HRIS specialists, through its speakers who represent the smartest users of HR tech across Asia Pacific, such as BASF PETRONAS Chemicals, Danfoss, and Johnson Electric.

HR Tech Interactive 2016 is a one-day conference for HR business and technology specialists happening in Hong Kong on 30 September, in Kuala Lumpur on 6 September, and in Singapore on 15 September.

“The success of HR Tech Interactive every year can also be attributed to our speakers’ credibility, competence, and commitment to support their peers in exploring HR tech possibilities,” said Aditi Sharma Kalra, regional editor of Human Resources magazine. “In addition, the conference is a rare opportunity to network with industry leaders, idea generators, and decision-makers in the fields of technology and human capital strategy.”

HR Tech Interactive will tackle issues the latest HR technology research has found to be affecting the HR community and businesses in general, including big data analytics, workforce management systems, mobile-enabled processes, social media campaigns, and talent management applications.
