Hotting up for HR Tech
After an amazing four days in San Francisco, Salesforce’s annual extravaganza, Dreamforce, is almost over for another year.
The expo was the biggest yet, with a cruise ship being brought in to accommodate the huge crowds without hotel rooms and an incredible finale from the Foo Fighters. But for us, the most exciting part of Dreamforce was meeting, listening to and learning from thought leaders and pioneers across the cloud industry.
It’s these new ideas and exciting insights that we’re looking forward to building on at the HR Technology Conference, which kicks off in Las Vegas one month from today.
Last year, more than 4,000 delegates attended the 17th Annual HR Technology Expo, and this year looks set to see huge numbers of HR professionals flocking to the conference once again. HRTech is the world’s largest technology and services exposition, providing cutting edge information and huge product announcements for exhibitors and visitors alike.
The Sage People team will be there in full force, and joining us on our stand this year will be Jen Alessandra, Senior Vice President of HR at SolarWinds. Named by Forbes as one of the top 10 fastest growing technology companies in each of the last three years (2012 – 2014), SolarWinds revolutionized its workforce management with Sage People’s cloud HRMS. Jen will be on hand at HRTech to talk about her experience as a customer of Sage People, and to offer her advice on how we can help transform business practice.
Our CMO, Paul Burrin, will also be speaking at InfluenceHR on the 18th October, a conference and panel discussion that lifts the lid on modern workforces and HR today. Paul will be joined by executives from other leading companies to discuss launching HR technology built on the Salesforce platform; offering key insight on opportunities and challenges, it’s one not to be missed.
We’re also lined up to meet several top analysts from Aberdeen Group, Brandon Hall, Gartner, Forrester, Bersin by Deloitte and many more, and are looking forward to talking to them about how we’re helping organizations to deliver great workforce experiences around the world.
All in, then, it looks like HR Tech will be a fantastic event, and a brilliant opportunity for mid-market organizations to get to grips with the latest issues and innovations. HRTech is always a great experience, and will hopefully deliver some new ideas on how to improve the workplace experience for employers and employees alike. We can’t wait to take the lessons we’ve learned from Dreamforce to Vegas, and continue the dialogue in the ever-innovative, ever-developing world of HR Tech.
