Year after year, People Matter’s flagship event TechHR has broken the traditional molds and has moved beyond being just a “conference” to being an ecosystem of creativity, inspiration, knowledge, and a toolbox for leaders to design the best of tomorrow, today.
The event focuses not on following the trends but anticipating the future and creating unique appearances.
LOS ALTOS, CALIF. (PRWEB) OCTOBER 22, 2018 – Convo the company that unifies the workforce, announced today that multinational, fast-fashion retail leader H&M has selected and successfully deployed Convo’s Retail Social Collaboration Platform across its U.S. organization of more than 15,000 employees.

Picture this: you walk into work one morning and realise there’s a robot at your desk, who hands you a box of your things and then escorts you out the door.
With all the talk about technology jeopardising our jobs, it’s hard not to wonder whether your job really could be replaced by technology.
Singapore, 30 Oct 2018 – Can AI predict what your career should be?
101.Careers, the first globally oriented career exploration platform for students from age 13 and up, have done precisely that in partnership with SoMin.ai

According to a recent tweet from Josh Bersin, founder of Bersin & Associates, there has been a 10% increase in HR Tech spending over the past year.
Feeding this trend is a wave of new HR platforms powered by artificial intelligence (AI). It’s no doubt that we’re living through the golden age of AI and now it’s disrupting the way we approach human resources.
My HR Tech market map came about quite accidentally.
I remember receiving an email from CBInsights which shows a map of HR Techs categorised by functions. That intrigued me and led me to research for a more Asian or local equivalent.
Unfortunately, that couldn’t be found and I did the next best thing – I created my own map.
30+ HR Tech vendors, 50+ HR Tech startups from the region, 20+ investors, angels and VCs, 30+ world-class speakers, facilitators and session leaders, and 1,000+ delegates from the HR and technology domains.
All in a single event in the form of People Matters TechHR 2019.
It will also be their first time holding this event outside of India over the past five years (check out my review of their TechHR 2018 New Delhi).
That’s hello (for man) in Thai. For ladies, you are supposed to replace Krab with Kup.
Something that I was reminded of over my recent visit to the city of the land of smiles.
It had been more than 3 years that I haven’t visit Bangkok – an abnormally for most Singaporeans given how much we typically enjoy that place.

I was having a coffee with a founder of a HR Tech recently.
He was in Singapore to sniff out the market as he has plans to open an office here, after Finland and Italy.
As usual, I started sharing with him on sites to check out and organisations to speak with so he can have a better pulse of the scene.
China is the world’s largest country by population standing at 1.3 billion as of 1st of June 2018.
From 1979 until 2010, China’s average annual GDP growth was 9.91%, reaching a historical high of 15.2% in 1984.
The growth has propelled China onto the world’s centre stage with the likes of Alibaba, Tencent and JD.com
The sheer market size of the country represents huge opportunities for businesses and the people that they hire.
