In recent years, the one major digital disruption revolutionising the way businesses assess and recruit talent has come through HR technology and the use of automation to improve HR processes.\r\n\r\nBusinesses have started utilising solutions that help them automate human resource functions such as employee payroll, talent acquisition and management, workforce analytics, engagement and more. These solutions help save costs, improve efficiency, retain talent while enhancing performance and productivity, ultimately leading to growth for the organisation.\r\n\r\nHR Technology has proven to be a boon for startups especially as they expand. Typical startups use technology across operations, so they also need a sophisticated mechanism for talent assessment, management and employee training. And with the growing startup landscape it is important that new businesses are up to date with the latest in HR & Work Tech.\r\n\r\nOne platform facilitating this is the annual TechHR Conference by the People & Work Tech focussed media platform People Matters. Organised annually, the conference focusses on providing talent leaders an opportunity to understand solutions that would suit the needs of their organisations.\r\n\r\nWith themes such as Digital Leadership, HR Technology Strategy, Future of Analytics among other HRTech areas of innovation, the conference has been an amalgamating ground for discussions that matter. These initiatives are both coming once again to the city of Gurugram on August 1 & 2, 2019.\r\n\r\n\r\nTechHR 2019\r\nContinuing the six-year streak of hosting two large events, one in India and one in Singapore, this year too People Matters will bring the most relevant products to provide the participants with an immersive experience like no other conference.\r\n\r\nTechHR 2019 is bringing together leaders, HR practitioners, startups and investors to discuss the future of work tech and providing a platform for meaningful conversations among professionals and experts. The biggest benefit for attendees is the opportunity to interact with new-age service providers in the domain of work technology.\r\n\r\nThis event has a special programme focussing on the needs and benefits of startups, named TechHR Startup Program.\r\nTechHR Startup Program 2019\r\nEver since its inception, TechHR Startup Program, has strived to bridge the gap between early-stage startups, and investors and buyers.

With the integration of AI and data analytics in human resource management systems, the human capital investment in this segment is also falling. In fact, Indian companies can save an estimated $600 Mn each year by integrating HRTech into their business. And, with the projected growth of economies especially in Asia in the coming years, HRTech could go a long way in being the agent for the speedy growth of businesses and the economy at large.\r\n\r\nPeople are the pillars of every organisation and if next-gen HR technology solutions are well integrated into businesses, a heavy weight is lifted off the business leader\u2019s shoulders, and the focus can be shifted to innovation in other spheres. Platforms such as TechHR have proven to be the right environment for all stakeholders to explore HRTech and see the latest innovations up close, and learn from experts, successful HRTech companies and startups and get inspired by their success stories.
