From one2ones with key investors to exhibiting the products to more than 3,000 talent and business leaders, People Matters TechHR Startup Program 2020 holds many opportunities for HR and Work Tech Startups from across the globe to fast track their way to the next funding round or more success.

The 21st edition of the Sierra Cedar 2018-19 HR Systems Survey reveals that over 70 per cent of organizations in the Asia Pacific are looking to increase their HR technology spending.

Though currently, Asia-Pacific organizations are 20 per cent lower in their overall usage of HR applications than their counterparts in North America or EMEA, it expects to make rapid strides as there are double-digit increases in the adoption of all HR Technology categories over the last three years here.

This increased demand for HR and work tech solutions presents an immense opportunity for HR and work Tech companies.

My 2020 Productivity Secret – Mindfulness

Very cliche for some.

I would think thing if someone told me the same thing a few years ago.

Spending my downtime just sitting there and focusing on my breath?

How is that more attractive than binge on Netflix or scrolling through my Facebook feeds?

So it took me a while to warm up to that idea and to give it a go.

Two things helped encourage me.

I can’t recall where I first read this.

Gamified Employee Engagement

Interview with Lam Mun Choong, Founder & CEO at SelfDrvn

Recently I made the reluctant decision to buy a Nintendo Switch for my kids.

They never had a console before and I’m afraid they would spend the whole day on gaming and nothing else.

But some relief sinks in when I got to see three of them playing co-op in Mario.

They were helping and learning from each other at the same time. They were engaged.

Which reminded me of the 2014 study by the American Psychological Association in which they concluded that video game play may provide learning, health and social benefits.

How Technology Can Streamline Human Resources

Managing human relations in a company is a big task.

In fact, employees who oversee these aspects of a company are managing a lot, like hiring, on-boarding, training, employee benefits, company culture and setting goals.

With so much to manage it might be hard to keep everything updated and in the right order. Thankfully, there are applications that can digitize this department to make it more effective.

 

The Hiring Process

The hiring process can be lengthy.

First, resumes are gathered, usually via an online portal.
