Fall forward with Technology

The impact of technology on HR continues to grow and change the industry at an exponential rate. HR manages the workforce and whatever makes it more efficient and improves HR functionality will be a topic of conversation at PIHRA’s HR Talent & Tech Conference. Covering the latest trends, we’ll delve into the intersection of talent and technology as it’s relevant to your role as an HR professional today. Obtain real-world lessons and key takeaways to help you bring your organization into the new world of work.

Tickets are selling out for the inaugural HR Talent and Technology Conference on October 13, 2016, 8:30-5:00p in Culver City. The primary objectives of the #HRTTech Conference are to help HR professionals be at the forefront of technology, and use it to anticipate the needs of their organization. Instead of being seen as the last holdout this program will provide ways to implement new technology strategies now, rather than waiting until they are forced to adapt.
