And other things I learned from People Matters TechHR 2018

150+ speakers, 200+ partners, 25+ startups and 3,000+ attendees. People Matters TechHR 2018 has been a blast.

Australia HR Tech Market Map 2018

The Australian HR tech market has proven itself to be one of the most vibrant across Asia Pacific.

Not surprisingly in a $12bn internal market there is a significant amount of potential for new tech players to disrupt or service existing incumbents.

In a world where once Seek reigned supreme from a technology standpoint with its monopoly on APAC job boards, a number of new players are springing up and finding means of connecting candidate to company.

How to Recognize and Reward Employees

Employee recognition means much more than the occasional acknowledgement that somebody did a good job.

When employees are recognized for their contributions at a deeper level, it does wonders for morale and helps your workforce to measure progression within their roles.

Rewarding employees for their achievements serve as a demonstration that you truly appreciate them.

Why Skills Matter So Much

And how Skills Framework can help

Saying that the nature of work has changed is an understatement.

Digital technology is disrupting business models and radically changing workplaces and how work is done. Organisations are becoming flatter, and millennials who make up more than half of the workforce, are redefining employer loyalty, amongst other things.

And we have not even discussed the impact of AI and Robotics on jobs.

17 Incredible Employee Perks of Successful Companies

Businesses no matter how large or small they are are taking employee perks into consideration when looking for ways to improve the employee experience.

According to a 2015 Glassdoor report, employees are prioritizing them over money, saying they would rather receive stronger benefits than a pay raise. This is a significant and new way of thinking about our jobs that can no longer be ignored.

Review of RecRight

Video recruitment tool

Recorded video interviews are a bit of a new concept in the recruitment space. For decades, companies relied upon the face-to-face interview to find the right employee.

It’s the go-to method in terms of pulling the trigger on a hire as an employer will want to have a deep and meaningful conversation before they offer a candidate a job.

Starting a HR Tech in Singapore?
