HR Tech Kōrero Series 'Toru'

We are super excited to announce our next Kōrero Series ‘Toru’ event will focus on AI with a twist! Scheduled for early 2024, here is a sneak peek of the event to get a taste of what you can expect

We have invited three Kiwi owned, globally successful HR tech organisations to sit down with us and discuss the impact of AI on their products, stories and then blow through the ceiling and together work through the impact to our Kiwi organisations, HR roles and how skills might change as a result. 

Also, as we are supporting Kiwi success stories, we want them to share in their respective journeys navigating HR tech and appearing to global customers from Aotearoa  – inspiration for us all!  The format will be a fireside chat with an MC and of course we will open up to the audience so you can ask relevant questions.  Post the fireside we will break out for networking drinks powered by EvokeHR.

We are pleased to announce our next HR tech kōrero series focuses on HR analytics and we are very pleased to welcome one of the foremost leaders in this space within Australia – Adam McKinnon (PhD)

Adam is currently responsible for people data and analytics at Reece Group across Australia and New Zealand. Prior to returning to Australia in 2020, he worked internationally for 13 years delivering advanced people analytics and HR Innovation for a variety of organisations. Drawing upon a multi-disciplinary background in Psychology, IT, Epidemiology and Finance, Adam is an advocate of asking three questions in his work: 1. says what? 2. so what? and 3. now what?

The presentation explores the critical necessity of data for HR organisations to be successful in the future. Practical topics of exploration will include when to use data, types of data to employ, and ways of quantifying impact and financial ROI in a bid to drive evidence-based decision making. Practical examples will be provided relating to employee churn, referral programme impact, M&A, and training ROI—utilising various HR, Finance and public data.

We Are Pleased To Announce Our First Event Will Be Hosted By Sydney University Showcasing Their Recent Journey With Robotics And Who Have Deployed 4 Bots To Help Them Manage Discrete High Volume HR Processes.

There are some challenges however so we are pleased to announce that Drew Williams, HR Director at the University of Sydney, and a few team members are offering an hour of their time to explain their journey and showcase their existing bots covering some of the scenarios below:
