Golden era of HR technology being held back by old, ineffective systems - experts

Dubai, UAE 12 November 2018:   HE Abdulla Ali Bin Zayed Al-Falasi, Director General for the Dubai Government Human Resources Department (DGHR) today officially inaugurated the 15th edition of the HR Summit and Expo, the region's largest gathering of human resources experts.

HE Abdulla Al-Falasi said, “The UAE is dedicated to the development of human beings within organisations which is why government agencies have taken steps to develop and implement courses and training programmes to the highest of standards.

“The human element is a cornerstone of societal development and the UAE is keen to provide opportunities that advance HR management. This is a crucial aspect as we enter into the fourth industrial revolution.

“The HR Summit and Expo is the ideal platform for exchanging views and experiences among the world's human resources experts who take advantage of the latest developments and technology within the industry.”

Following the official opening, HE Abdulla Al-Falasi toured the exhibition halls, meeting with exhibitors who have congregated in Dubai for the three-day event at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

Ankur Modi, CEO for Status Today, the world's fastest growing employee insights platform, believes the introduction of innovative technology has the potential to revolutionise HR.

He said: “We are experiencing a golden era for AI and HR technology. As companies are trying to become more data driven, many are continuing to use the old traditional HR tools such as surveys to see results. It's our duty to provide companies with the cost-effective platforms and technology they need to get faster, more reliable results.

“We are lucky to be living in a technology driven era where we have the opportunity to get rid of timely frustrating surveys, and have access to immediate and cost-efficient tools that give faster results, improving efficiency across the whole business.”

The HR Summit and Expo will welcome more than 5,000 HR professionals, who will have access to over 70 free to attend seminars and an expo floor showcasing products that span over 25 different categories and exhibit the latest in HR technology. 

Global Consultancy Company, Cubiks, designs tools and solutions for assessing and developing people. Cubiks uses software powered by artificial intelligence and complex algorithms to provide visually attractive tools that help organizations make better people decisions.  
James Raley, the company's Country Manager, said: “Systems and technologies that create efficiency are now more important than ever. In our industry we lose so much time on administration and other routine tasks that can all be automated.”

Showcasing a number of tools involving virtual reality, artificial intelligence and gamified assessments at this year's summit, Cubiks will also launch Cubiks Capture, a talent attraction tool that stretches the boundaries of traditional, values assessment with a candidate experience mimicking a social media feed.

Raley added: “We understand how it is important to stay ahead of the unstoppable wave of technological advancements happening across the world. Our tools can help support talent management during this technology transition we are experiencing in the industry.”

The HR Summit and Expo features headline gurus Julian Birkinshaw, renowned author and Deputy Dean of Executive Education at London Business School; Jason Averbook, author and industry analyst and Peter Cappelli one of the Top 5 Most Influential Management Thinkers at The Wharton School, as well as Daniel Pink, who holds one of the ten most-watched TED Talks of all time at NYT. 

The HR tech focused exhibition has attracted a speaker line up of more than 150 HR thought leaders from international and regional organisations, including Careem, Nestle, British Airways, Du, UAE Exchange, Fitbit, Oracle, Mastercard and FranklinCovey.

The HR Summit & Expo is supported by Headline Sponsors: ONPRO, CivilSoft, Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, London Business School, Aetna International, SHL, PwC, Oracle, and StatusToday; Strategic Partner: FranklinCovey; Platinum Sponsors: Financial Times - IE Business School Corporate Learning Alliance, Daman Health, Xpert Learning, Cornerstone OnDemand, Cubiks, Infor; Gold Sponsors: Saba Halogen; and Silver Sponsors: HRSG, Workplace by Facebook.
