What to Look for at This Year’s CIPD HR Software and Recruitment Show


The CIPD HR Software and Recruitment Show 2018 is happening June 13-14 at the Olympia London.

For anyone working in HR, it is a great opportunity to discover the latest products and services and hear from industry experts.

As always, there is a great selection of FREE learning sessions. For example, Gary Lacey, a SumTotal Senior Solutions Architect, will discuss ways to improve employee engagement with a world-class recruiting, onboarding and development solution. Gary is an experienced technical consultant with a passion for technology and supporting customer relationships.

GaryLGary’s presentation, “Improving engagement with a world-class recruiting, onboarding and employee development solution” takes place on Thursday 14th June from 13:15 to 13:45 in the Technology and Software Arena.

Employee engagement and retention are hot ticket items for nearly every company. In one study, 44% of HR directors said their biggest hurdle for 2018 is employee engagement, with staff retention and absence management and recruitment coming in at 36% and 33% respectively.

Employee engagement, or lack thereof, is not exactly a new phenomenon, and as a constant concern is a topic well researched and debated amongst industry professionals. What is new, however, is that technology is disrupting and reshaping not just employee expectations, but also how organisations handle and respond to these demands.

Deloitte acknowledges this and believes “Companies need a new approach – one that builds on the foundation of culture and engagement to focus on the employee experience holistically, considering all the contributors to worker satisfaction, engagement, wellness, and alignment.”

SumTotal offers a comprehensive integrated solution that checks these boxes. And we are keen to share just how we accomplish this. So, I encourage anyone going to this event to drop by and hear Gary explain how SumTotal can assist your organisation from the hiring to the development and retention of every employee.

The award-winning SumTotal, I’m excited to say, gives organisations the tools and technology at their fingertips to attract, retain and develop a world-class workforce.

We believe SumTotal speaks for itself. Drop by stand D28 for a demo.
