Navigating the workforce evolution. Together.

HR Tech Festival Asia is set to be the biggest ever conference for the professional HR and tech communities in Asia.
By: | November 27, 2019

Millennials in the workforce. Digital Transformation. Innovation Mindsets. Organisational Culture. These are much more than just buzzwords and catch-phrases for the modern HR professional navigating the workforce evolution in Asia-Pacific in 2020. Rather, they are specific challenges and opportunities; industry-wide ambitions and business risks – all at the same time.

It’s a complex business environment, and HR professionals need to guide their organisations through the storms of continuous change. They need to be at the top of their game, constantly adding value and building the long-term capabilities of their workforces.

The carefully curated content behind the HR Tech Festival Asia conference programme is designed to help the workforce leaders of today achieve exactly these goals and more. With some of the world’s foremost minds on management, digital disruption, and HR technology, alongside the best of the Asia-Pacific region’s local case studies and practical advice, the stage is set for the biggest HR Tech Festival ever hosted in 2020.

Manpower policies unpacked

The event is also supported by a wide range of public sector organisations from markets throughout the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region. In particular, the ASEAN Future of Work stream, in partnership with the Singapore Ministry of Manpower, will see senior leaders from all sides of the employment equation (Governments, Employer Groups, and Labour Unions) from throughout the ASEAN region, as well as Australia, New Zealand, India, China, South Korea, and Japan,  discussing skills studies, employment facilitation, and HR capability building across the region.

Other streams at HR Tech Festival Asia 2020 will highlight specialisations and content focused on each of: HR and Digital Transformation, the Smart Workforce and Innovation, Recruitment and Employee Engagement, Talent Management and Development, and HR Tech.

And the extremely popular (sold out in 2019) CXO Symposium will feature high-level strategy and workforce planning content for all those at the top levels of business.

Region’s biggest HR and Tech expo

The seven stages set across the entire fourth floor of Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre (20,000 square metres) are complemented by what is set to be the region’s biggest HR and Tech exposition. With more than 200 booth spaces, and interactive elements across the floor, delegates will be able to share in some of the latest products, services, and technologies that are taking HR to the next level in 2020.

The Expo floor will also host a special zone exclusively for the vibrant startup community in Southeast Asia, dealing in HR products and services across the region.

HR Fest Awards

HR Tech Festival Asia 2020 also takes time out to celebrate the outstanding achievements and efforts of the region’s top HR leaders, companies and teams.  With nominations now open, the winners across each of five HR Fest Awards categories will be announced on the HR Tech stage at the close of presentations on Day One.

That will help transition the entire expo floor into a twilight fiesta celebration, with cocktails, networking, live entertainment, and all of the winner presentations.

The categories for this year’s awards are:

  • Employer of Choice
  • HR Team of the Year
  • Best Use of HR Technology
  • Best HR Leader (individual)
  • Best C-Suite Leader (individual)
  • Best Workplace Culture and Engagement (for organisations with fewer than 500 employees)
  • Best Workplace Culture and Engagement (for organisations with 500 or more employers)
