QnA International Announces OnPro as a Platinum Sponsor for GOV HR Summit 2018. OnPro, a regional leader in cloud-based HR solutions will participate in the highly anticipated summit hosted under the theme of “Because People Matter”
Dubai based QnA International is pleased to announce OnPro as a Platinum Sponsor for the two-day Summit taking place on October 23-24 at Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, Abu Dhabi, UAE. The Summit, now in its sixth year, is the biggest and the only GCC- focused platform which gathers top HR leaders from the government, semi government, public sector and state owned entities. Hosted under the theme of “Because People Matter”, the summit aims to discuss the latest trends in human capital development, meet the best HR solution providers, benchmark HR practices, learn from one other and stand as “ONE” GCC Community. The summit is designed with an agenda that is not only relevant to the region but also highlights practical examples & successful case studies by leading global & regional organizations on how we can effectively tackle the challenges that lie ahead.
Developing GCC countries’ digital skills and capabilities could lead to 1.3 million extra digital jobs being created by 2025, according to new research by LinkedIn and Strategy&. As the region transforms from oil based to a knowledge based economy, the summit provides an opportunity to discuss latest technological trends and how organizations can deliver a truly digital HR experience.
Speaking on HR technology trends in the Middle East for 2018 & beyond, Alexis Chiotis, Founder, OnPro, commented “From our experience, HR departments are increasingly seeking to embrace new technologies that will enhance their business processes and more importantly engage their workforce. Technology is an amazing tool which used well can bring the workforce closer to the employer’s brand, culture and ethics. Specifically, we are seeing a trend towards Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Chat generally as a more effective channel of communication either one-on-one or within a group environment. Effectively, AI chatbots and live chat are the same except for the involvement of only one or more humans! With natural language and machine learning technologies advancing at a great pace, the user will hardly notice the difference in the years to come”
“At the 6th annual GOV HR Summit, we are excited to hear from the best in the industry on how technology is being applied in HR functions and the breakthroughs expected to shape the future of work. As government and public sector organizations of the region embark on their journey towards digitization and workforce development, the discussion on how technology can be used to increase operational efficiencies will be a key aspect addressed at the summit,’’ said Mr Ackash Jain, Director, QnA International.
To compete in a world that is increasingly witnessing technology-led industry disruptions, HR departments need to be agile and flexible, Alexis further states “We still see cloud-adoption as a medium to long term acceptance strategically but we are committed to delivering solutions on the cloud, After all when blockchain is fully here the cloud may be our only option for a truly digital HR experience”
The two-day conference will be followed by the region’s most prestigious award ceremony, The GCC GOV HR Awards 2018. The event recognizes, promotes and rewards excellence, professionalism and outstanding achievement of governments, business organizations and individuals who have raised the benchmark of people performance across the region.
