Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has announced its 3rd HR Technology Conference & Exposition SHRM Tech 2017 is taking place on 20-21 April, 2017 at Hotel Novotel, Hyderabad.


Being the most powerful confluence of people, business and technology, it is also going to be the biggest ever HR Tech Meet in the country, by bringing together more than 850 delegates from organizations across all sectors this time.

The conference will be attended by HR professionals, CHROs, CTOs, CIOs, CXOs, Business Heads, Technology professionals, Technology providers & Innovators, Startups, SMEs and Entrepreneurs, Industry thought leaders, Strategists/ Consultants and Solutioning experts.

Achal Khanna, CEO, SHRM India Operations, said, “Today technology plays a critical role in various HR practices for companies across the globe and the role of technology in shaping HR policies will only get bigger in the future. In the face of rapidly evolving technology, it is important for HR practitioners to connect with each other, share experiences, and engage in meaningful discussions to further harness and adopt technology for better execution of HR responsibilities.”


The two day conference will include highly engaging knowledge sessions, panel discussions, keynote addresses, and study/Report launches, wherein industry experts will share their thoughts and discuss ways to bridge the gap between HR and technology. The ‘Sierra Cedar HR Tech Landscape Study’ report will also get launched at the conference for the first time.

“SHRM Tech aims to be just that - a platform for experience sharing and discussions on the road ahead. Expert led sessions and workshops will deliver greater understanding of the role played by technology and suggest ways to derive maximum benefit. It is through such discussions and experience sharing that we can hope to become a trend setter rather than a trend follower in the HR tech space,” she said.

Speakers for the conference this year are Henry G. Jackson, President & Chief Executive officer, SHRM; Josh Bersin (Principal, Bersin by Deloitte, Deloitte Consulting LLP); Abdul Jaleel (VP, People Resources India, Adobe); Gaurav Ahluwalia (MD & Head of HR, JPMorgan Chase); D.
