Register by January 7 to Save $300.00

HORSHAM, PA--(Marketwire - December 7, 2010) - Human resource technology is much more than just software to house employee information and benefits; it is now the fuel that helps to keep all cylinders of an organization running. The Second Annual Human Resource Executive Forum®, happening March 14-16, 2011, at the Grand Hyatt New York, is the place for high-level professionals to find strategies to re-fuel their HR systems. The event, produced by Human Resource Executive® magazine, features open and insightful discussions on HR Technology, HR Leadership, Talent Management, Recruiting and Benefits.

From the latest approaches for identifying future talent gaps to best practices in global collaboration, HR technology is the new arsenal that enables HR leaders to contribute to their organizations in a more strategic and meaningful way. And with social media growing as a driving force in branding and engagement, every option should be explored.

On day two of the Forum, Patricia Milligan, president of human capital at Mercer, will steer a probing discussion on new technologies that are transforming the way HR does its job and effective methods to get all organization leaders on board.

"Like it or not, the HR leader of today needs a deep and broad understanding of how technology impacts and connects not only the HR function, but the entire organization," said Milligan. "We have assembled a terrific panel of technology thought leaders and practitioners who can help HR leaders understand this crucial dynamic in the business world of today and tomorrow."

On day one, Cornell professors Chris Collins and John Hausknecht will present the results of a new Center for Advanced Human Resource Studies partner survey on the state of HR analytics from a cultural, technological and skills standpoint. They will lead a discussion with guest HR executives on overcoming organizational challenges to the effectiveness of workforce analytics.

"Our session will go beyond the 'why' and 'what' of HR analytics, giving attendees tools around the 'how' of true analytics success -- getting people to value, use and integrate it into the way they work," Collins said.
