I bet you can’t even guess how many “entrepreneurs” are out there right now.
I’m sure you’ve seen countless annoying, scammy, and make-you-want-to-skip ads all over social media on how to
become an entrepreneur and make bank.
Luckily for most of us, are astute enough to think twice before buying into their one-time offer for an online course.
The Singapore government has been encouraging businesses in Singapore to transform by adopting technology in all aspects of running the business, including the Human Resources (HR) function.
New-age HR Technology (HRTech) solutions can minimize many time-consuming transactional HR tasks and free-up bandwidth for HR professionals to do more strategic work.
In an effort to accelerate the technology adoption by the HR fraternity,
hrtech.sg has embarked on HRTech Demo Hour event series to evangelize and promote the use of HR technologies.
You probably already know that the most valuable asset to any business is its people.
Without the innovative minds and hard-working teams, a business is nothing at all.
That’s why it’s so important to invest in the people in your business just as much as you do any other aspect, like marketing or research and development.
E-commerce is on the rise in Asia and elsewhere in the world, with significant profits available for those that get it right.
This makes it very tempting to get involved, but the costs of starting up a business can put a lot off people of.
Hosting, developments, marketing and communication require a budget and that can be an obstacle for some of you who would like to start a new business.
Video is a flexible and engaging content format that not only gives us a real-life picture of what is going on but also it’s easy to share and spread across a diversity of platforms.

In a fast-shifting talent marketplace, Recruiters are facing multiple challenges:
The best candidate is available in the market for 10 days
60% of candidates abandon the long hiring process.
US$ 4000 is the average cost of hire for enterprises
Finally, there is a shift in preference of professionals/millennials for “gigs”, rather than permanent roles

According to a McKinsey analysis, the average professional spends 28% of the workday reading and answering email .
This is largely due to the sheer number of messages that they received daily – 120 of them.
Email was once at the forefront of convenience.
Used as a way to quickly send messages and share files from anywhere in the world, it was — and, for many, still is — a primary tool to communicate with friends, family, and colleagues.
The HR Tech market is extremely fragmented and cluttered.
Based on my 2019 HR Tech Market Map released earlier this year, there are at least 160 HR tech vendors in Singapore alone. And 5000+ HR tech products globally.
I can imagine the confusion amongst buyers as they are reminded about the “Future of Work” and “HR Digital Transformation”.

Below is my personal shortlist of events that I feel are worth the time.
