QnA plans HR tech event in Saudi Arabia

RIYADH, June 26, 2017

Dubai-based QnA International, a B2B event specialist, is set to host a first-of-its-kind summit to discuss the unique challenges the Fourth Industrial Revolution will place on HR and IT departments in Saudi Arabia.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution continues to transform the workplace with artificial intelligence (AI) and automation becoming increasingly prevalent across industries.

The only event dedicated to HR technology in the kingdom, the HR Tech Saudi Summit, will run from November 20 and 21 in Riyadh. It will unite HR executives with the IT industry in Saudi Arabia at a time when the country is making significant investments in leading technology solutions, in line with Saudi Vision 2030.

The summit is the only initiative that brings together HR and IT professionals from the unique business landscape of Saudi Arabia, on a singular platform, to discuss the newest trends, ideas and disruptions over a period of two-days exclusively dedicated to and focused on HR technology, said the organisers.

Sidh NC, director, QnA International, said: “The debut of the summit comes at a time when Saudi Arabia is moving towards digitisation and hence uniquely placed to welcome the collaboration between the HR and IT capabilities.”

“The summit is the first of its kind in the country to address the technological revolution underway in the workplace and debate how best to harness its capacity for the success of business in the public, private and government sectors,” he said.

In line with Saudi Vision 2030, the kingdom has pledged to increase investments in technology in order to continue leading the digital transformation of the region.

Under the King Salman Program for Human Capital Development, 500,000 government employees will receive training to upskill by 2020.

All ministries and government institutions will be required to adopt best practice in human capital development and other organisations will be tasked with enhancing engagement and the employee experience.

Enabled by mobile, remote and real time connectivity, digital HR processes now reach beyond payroll and data capture to incorporate functions such as interviewing, performance management and KPI review.

The technology exists for employees in larger organisations to share concerns and feedback, or even complete training remotely, through mobile video.

“With discussion focusing on the latest HR technology trends, innovations and disruptive ideas, the event will help leaders from the HR and IT departments to collaborate on effective solutions to modern human challenges,” the official added. – TradeArabia News Service
