HR technology trends in talent management for 2016

Integration and disruption have been two of the most critical concepts emerging from HR technology trends.

This means that organisations should leverage the web, mobile platforms, analytics and other innovative tools on managing and developing HR strategy and talent management to stay ahead of the same.

The latest technologies, software and best practices will be unveiled at Talent Management Asia 2016, an annual two-day conference in Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore in March 2016.

“HR management in the digital age is adapting and evolving but what HR practitioners should not forget is strategy,” said Aditi Sharma Kalra, regional editor of Human Resources magazine.

“At Talent Management Asia 2016, top executives from leading companies and HR technology specialists will show how HR departments can create a strategy which will allow them to keep up with the changing trends and fulfil their role in talent management and in achieving business targets.”

Now in its 4th year, Talent Management Asia will explore the most pressing issues organisations and HR practitioners are currently facing. Here is how one of the topics, technology in talent management, will be presented at the event.

How does the new world of work look like? Seasoned HR executives will demonstrate the integration of people, process and technology in a panel discussion at Talent Management Asia.

Using a case study form EDB, Eveline Noya, executive career management, vice president for human resources at Essilor, Gaurav Sharma, human resources director at Coca-Cola and Hari Menon, HR vice president at ALSTOM Transport will also share their insights on how organisations can achieve high level of efficiency and productivity.

In addition, a keynote presentation on how big data can effectively work in organisations will be held.  The session will unfold strategies on how to enable smarter workforce decisions to impact business outcomes and how HR can adapt a data-driven and customer centric mindset.

The role of technology and data in executing organisational decisions is the central theme of Jacqueline Yew’s panel discussion.

As senior vice president for organisational strategy and leadership development at Pactera Technology International, Yew supervises the company’s key strategic activities like high potential leadership development and acquisition and supporting the CHRO in steering Pactera’s international HR strategy. Bringing these accomplishments and over 17 years of experience in the industry, Yew will reveal the most effective principles and techniques on how to utilise technology in process alignment and on how to transition from system of record to system of engagement.

HR practitioners looking for cost-efficient yet high-performing tools and processes will get insights and recommendations during a keynote session on the latest technology being used in HR functions, from recruitment to compensation & benefits.

Moreover, a case study will go into the issue of talent analytics as art and science in depth. This presentation will answer questions about the use of analytics in optimising workforce planning and in talent management.

Another intense panel discussion led by highly regarded industry leaders will re-examine the expanding role of social media in talent management. Panellists will focus on how to maximise social media in advancing recruitment activities and reinforcing staff engagement.
