Organised by Dubai-based QnA International, the third edition of the HR Tech MENA Summit is set to run from the 16 - 17 May, 2017 at The Westin Dubai in Al Habtoor City.
Hosting numerous industry experts from the HR and IT sectors, the two-day event will feature a number of keynote presentations, panel discussions, and roundtable sessions. Focusing the latest advances in HR technologies, the Summit is well-attended with both global and regional organisations, such as IBM, Oracle, Aramex, Chalhoub Group, Emirates NBD, Emaar, GE Power, and Hamad Medical centre, to name a few.
The event's welcome address was delivered by HE Dr. Omar Al-Nuaimi, Assistant Undersecretary for Communications and International Relations, Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization, UAE.
Sidh N.C, Director, QnA International, said: "The way in which we work, and the workplace as we know it is changing daily. Keeping up with these changes in itself is a difficulty, much harder is the implementation of the appropriate tools.
"Some may wonder if these new methodologies and technologies co-opted into the workplace is applicable to this region, to answer this, anyone needs to just look at government policies across the GCC which promote on the one hand technological adoption, and on the other hand localisation of their workforces.
"This change, in combination with the onset of economic policies such as the implementation of VAT, poses tough challenges for the HR sectors in the region. An answer to these oncoming challenges is technology, and at the third annual HR Tech MENA Summit, we will hear from market leaders and experts on how to best incorporate them into our workplaces," he concluded.
