The Role of Video Content in HR

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.

People like it because it’s easy to perceive, entertaining and engaging, and it is one of the reasons why video content is highly demanded on the market now giving a potentially high return on investment via the usage of different channels. 

How PeopleStrong Onboarding Helps To Retain New Hires

Imagine you’re going into a new shop. What do you see?

Sure, you look at the brand. You look at the display on the shop windows.

Now, imagine the first time you walk into that shop.

What do you see? What do you feel?

You look at the lighting, the sequential placement of items, the ergonomics in the arrangement and the first hello that the serviceman says to you.

Accelerate your hiring with Talview

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

Talview helps to address these challenges by reaching out to & screening more candidates using lesser time than traditional hiring processes.

Secure your business communication with Zippi

Intelligent, Secure Collaboration at Work

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.

SolveCubeHR – The Intelligent Global HR Marketplace

An interactive, exclusive to HR, intelligent matchmaking platform to procure, provide and transact all HR Freelancers and HR technology solutions

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”.

Upcoming HR Events to Attend in 2019

I was curating a list of HR events for the rest of this year and was blown away by the number of them.

There are at least 20 of them over the next 6 months and this is just in Singapore.

Obviously, not all would be of the same quality.

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


  • A showcase of the world’s best HR and workplace learning technology solutions
  • 60 “how to” presentations from Asian HR experts
  • Live demos where buyers can fully assess solutions in just 2 days
  • 2,000 attendees from across Asia

The HR & Learning Show is co-located with the Accounting and Finance Show Asia, which attracted over 2,800 attendees in 2018.

Date: October 8, 2019—October 9, 2019

What does the future of work look like?

The workplace is changing rapidly.

Every day we hear about new technology disrupting industries and how work is done. Attracting and retaining talent is also becoming more challenging as organisations compete for employees.

It is against this backdrop that HR professionals need to continue to find new ways to add value to their organisations and gain executive support for people initiatives.
