What You Missed At hrtech.sg Demo Hour

The first edition of the Demo Hour series brings HRTech service providers and the HR fraternity on a single platform to accelerate the adoption of HR technologies. The event stuck to its tagline of “No preachy presentations. Just high-quality demos of HR Technology solutions

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.

What makes the event different from others is that instead of the problem the audience gets a chance to witness live demos of the products that solve their problems, rather than the presentation of concepts.
