More and more, innovative HR practitioners are reshaping the way they work in terms of adopting, rather than avoiding, powerful new technologies such as recruitment chatbots, database mining and social recruitment. With frequent advances in areas like robotics, automated communication and the Internet of Things, the pressure is on for HR teams to diversify their knowledge and keep pace with the digital disruption curve. For those prepared to get hands on with the future, the current value of the HR software and tools market is said to be around $14 billion.
In partnership with Careers24 and in association with SABPP, the annual Future of HR Summit draws together forward-thinking CEOs, Directors, tech gurus and business specialists, to share strategies for the workplace of tomorrow. From 18 – 19 July 2018 a roster of high-profile speakers will once again address the exciting, ongoing transformation of HR in the business environment, forecast trends for the near-future, share innovative approaches to overcoming challenges and discussed practical methods of employee engagement and talent acquisition in the hyper-digital age.
The ancillary Awards, on 19 July, will recognise and applaud the ingenuity and agility of companies, business leaders and HR practitioners who are already riding the waves of change and defining the way South African organisations will manage their human capital into the 2020’s. Their stories, shared in the wake of the awards through the media, social media and word of mouth, will inspire peers across business and industry to emulate their success, in being both people-first and digital-first.
