About the conference

IILM is organizing a National Conference ‘Empowering HR through Technology: The Way Forward’ on September 30, 2016, at its Gurgaon campus. Through this conference IILM aims to create a platform where HR professionals can share their insights on the sweep of technology in the field of Human Resource.

The world of human resources has experienced something of a revolution over the last decade. Much of that change is due to advances in technology and the opportunities found when hiring managers began embracing the Internet as a new tool in their toolbox rather than just an interesting way to pass the time. The World Wide Web has forever changed the way we do almost everything — and change is good.

Change is the only constant force in this dynamic and competitive world. The theme of this year’s HR conference is based on the need and methods of such change in the HR scenario. Companies are spending huge sums on trying to engage employees, acquire talent, retain employees, optimize performance, and to promote the employer brand. The conference will deal with innovative HR practices through the use of latest technology to empower the HR function and create value for the organization.

The conference is a confluence of corporate speakers and academia experts to merge the practical and the theoretical spectrum together. This will aid in better understanding of the changing HR arena and how converging HR and technology can create value. The sessions will be power packed with the theme to bring forth the clarity of concepts and actionable steps for the audience.
