Welcome and opening remarks from the chairperson

Tech Talk 1: Bridging the talent gap through tech
As local skills shortages impact several labour markets, companies must take a more creative and innovative approach to solve the talent gap. Thanks to technological advancements, international recruiting can be done quickly and compliantly — and with the continued adoption of remote work, global hiring is proving to be a sustainable means of attaining qualified talent. But how exactly can employers leverage tech to stand out in the competitive talent market and overcome the difficulties of hiring in unfamiliar jurisdictions? In this session, Ali will discuss:
Sales Executive, Globalization Partners
Tech Talk 2: Identity fraud and verification: Identifying and mitigating risks
More than ever, our digital identities are our gateway to the world. From the comfort of our desks and couches they allow us to work, play, connect and transact. But this superpower is not without its kryptonite. Fraud, cybercrime and imposture threaten our individual security and the security of our organisations. This session will explore concerns such as:
Vice President, Head of Australia and New Zealand, First Advantage
Tech Talk 3: Recession-proof your workforce with a Zero Wasted Potential people strategy
There are growing fears the world is teetering on the brink of a recession, with rising inflation levels and increasing interest rates painting a concerning picture.

Tech Talk 14: Strategies for a successful HR tech implementation
Whatever the HR tech initiative, success or failure will largely be determined by the implementation process. Get it right, and all is well; get it wrong, and you could be in a world of financial and reputational pain. Planning a successful HR tech implementation begins before you select the tech solution. In this session, we will look at some of the keys to a successful HR tech implementation:
- Defining the WHY and WHAT of the initiative
- Identifying and informing key stakeholders
- Honestly determining the resources required for implementation
- Objectively selecting the implementation team – who’s right, not who’s available
