CEO Interview with Shankar Krishnamoorthy

Synergita - Award winning Continuous Employee Performance & Engagement Software

Do you know how much it costs to replace a headcount?

It isn’t just the salary alone.

You have to account for the non-wage costs such as the costs of on-boarding, recruiting (headhunting fees), honeymoon period, acclimatisation (for both parties), and the list goes on.

If the headcount you are replacing happens to be a sales person, the damage would be much bigger given that a portion of your clientele might go with him or her.

This event combines Asia’s top HR executives with the industry’s top speakers.

The event is an elite networking opportunity, with 3/4 of a day of working sessions, followed by an evening of networking to relax and talk with your peers.

I will be speaking at the event about the trends of HR Tech.

This is coupled with an extremely low unemployment rate of 1.1%.

Coaching is one of those highly under-rated things that can have huge impact across an organisation.

CEO Interview with Witansa Angwidjaja

Co-Founder of Go-UP.Work - Employee Engagement Platform

A search for employee engagement on Google would return 172,000,000 results.

It is no coincidence that this space has seen an explosion of new innovative HR Tech.

Go-Up.Work is one of them. With office in Singapore and Thailand, their employee engagement platform help companies to optimise their people experience to uplift, engage and retain them better

The whole gist is a happy employee is a productive one.

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.

With speakers from the Yoda of HR Tech Josh Bersin to Senior HRs from the likes of Microsoft, Nestle, Accenture and you name it, the event really opened my eyes to the world of HR Tech.

10 Tips to Successfully Bootstrap Your Startup

“Bootstrapping is a way to do something about the problems you have without letting someone else give you the permission to do them” – Tom Preston-Werner, co-founder of Github

After six years of bootstrapping at Villa Finder, I entirely agree with this quote. Starting a company solely with your own dime has its merits and some setbacks.

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.

Getting Digital with HR

HR and Digital. Two worlds that in the past had either never collided or were conjoined in ways that ended in more pain than productivity.

Today, the digital transformation of HR is a growing topic of discussion.

While it is possibly a by-product of my filter bubble, particularly on LinkedIn, the reality is that there has been an increasing number of posts about HR Tech conferences, people analytics, artificial intelligence (AI) in HR, organisational network analysis, Agile HR, and many other related topics.
