Live updates: HR Tech Interactive 2017, Singapore

Welcome to HR Tech Interactive 2017, Singapore – the fifth annual edition of Asia’s most innovative, invite-only specialised conference on managing HR in the age of digital disruption, produced by Priya Veeriah. We’re reporting live from InterContinental Singapore, with Human Resources’ Wani Azahar and Aditi Sharma Kalra on-site.

The most recent updates will appear first:

With that, we come to the end of HR Tech Interactive 2017, Singapore. Human Resources would like to thank all speakers, panelists and table hosts in pulling together facts and case studies for insightful presentations. Thanks also to all delegates for their active participation in the event and leveraging on the various networking and interactive opportunities. Finally, but not the least, we thank the following sponsors and partners:

  • PageUp
  • ManpowerGroup

Coming in to the last segment, Gary Lee, chief human resources specialist, global talent development of Grundfos takes charge of moderating a panel discussion focussed on cognitive analysis.

Joining him are a capable pool of panelists:

  • Cindy Dermawan, head of talent and learning management, diversity and inclusion, Citi
  • Reddiam Raghu Ram, head of human resources, Shell
  • Aparna Kumar, regional human resources lead, Monsanto

We next have a case study on amplifying HR technology to support transformation. Our speaker is currently spearheading regional HR transformation covering 14 countries across Asia Pacific. She is setting up a fundamental platform to not only increase talent and people capability but enhance cross-country collaboration.

The head of regional rewards and HR programmes management from Fuji Xerox, Jacely Voon Hui Mien, will share how Fuji Xerox has built a business case to reform HR, as well as driven transformation.

"We want to leverage the right tools for the future of HR," she says. "To drive the business in the future, we were clear that we needed some kind of intelligence to provide details like employee turnover to the company. So we adopted the three principles of linking process, people, and technology."
