Gurgaon: People Matters, a leading knowledge and media platform in the HR space in India, presents its flagship event – TechHR16 on 4 – 5 August at The Leela, Gurgaon, where the industry experts will converge to discuss how HR Transformation leveraging the power of technology can be the edge for business digital transformation.
The company in a press statement HR leaders in the two-day event will be talking to about 1000+ delegates about tech-HR amalgamation. Commenting on the third edition of TechHR, Ester Martinez, CEO and Editor-in-Chief, People Matters shared, “Many analysts have coined that the digital economy is the 3rd industrial revolution, comparable in scale and impact to how electrification affected life and work. The potential of digital is clear to business leaders, but organizations are struggling on how to practically execute a digital vision.”
Further commenting on the importance of tech in HR, one of TechHR16 speakers, Laurie Ruettimann, former CHRO, Author and Strategist said, “I believe technology will provide organizational clarity and enable leaders to make faster HR decisions. Without technology, we’re making assumptions instead of recommendations. Social media has created an interconnected HR community, but I look forward to networking with global colleagues at TechHR.”
People Matters also mentioned that it will reveal annual HR-Tech Study 2016 at the conference, which was done in partnership with SAP India. People Matters – SAP HR Technology Study covers a sample size of 170 industry leaders, which showed that although as many as 98% organizations have some HR Technology in place, the technology is only being leveraged still for the administrative function.

Theme Theatre will be on the broad conversation on key themes and trends on business, digital and transformation; the Insight Theatre is about Case Studies, practical masterclasses, and engaging conversations; Lab Theatre is about exploratory sessions, provocative keynotes and hands-on experience to bridge the gap between theory and practice.
