theHRshow 2009 Goes Virtual

April 15, 2009

 

HRchitect, the leader in HR systems strategic consulting, and the premier Human Capital Management (HCM) and Talent Management systems consulting firm, has confirmed that theHRshow 2009 is going virtual and has been extended to a three day event.

 

“As we continue to be in one of the most challenging business environments in recent memory, we’ve decided to postpone theHRshow on-site conference until early 2010 AND create a virtual event in place of the currently scheduled 2009 event,” stated Matt Lafata, Conference Chair for theHRshow and the Vice-President of Sales and Marketing for HRchitect.

 

Today’s economic conditions are forcing people to make smarter HR technology decisions than ever before. As a result, theHRshow was created by industry experts and senior level practitioners who know what kind of challenges HR and HRIS professionals face on a daily basis. theHRshow will include 18 virtual sessions and four moderated panel discussions of invaluable information on the puzzling world of HR Technology over a three day period. Best of all, this will all be made available FREE of charge to the HR community through the generosity of our sponsors.

Multiple tracks of sessions will take place on June 11 and June 12 around:

 

·         Talent Acquisition including Onboarding, Assessments, Background checking, and more

·         Talent Management including Compensation, Performance Management, Workforce Planning, and more

·         Emerging Trends and Technologies including Social Networking, Web 2.0, HCM portals, and more

·         HCM Strategy

·         Managing HR Systems

·         Professional Development

 

Four panel discussions will take place on June 10 from leading vendors in the areas of Onboarding Systems, Talent Management Systems, HR Systems, and Learning Management Systems.

 

“HRchitect has attended three HR related trade shows this year and each has had a fraction of the attendance they had in 2008, added Tiffany Appleby, Director of Marketing and Corporate Communications for HRchitect and theHRshow. “In looking forward to upcoming shows, we are hearing the same thing that attendance is expected to be down by 50% or more. We want to be sensitive to HR professionals in these trying times while providing a tremendous resource at the same time.”

 

theHRshow 2009 virtual conference will sessions are innovative, thought-provoking and will appeal to many different groups of people who play any role in the use of talent management and/or HR systems. The world class list of presenters and leading vendors participating in the panels have been carefully selected over the past few months. HR professionals can visit www.thehrshow2009.com to see a list of sessions and register online.

 

As the HR community knows from your past dealings with HRchitect, we don’t settle for second best in anything we do,” stated Lafata. “There are simply too many organizations cutting travel budgets for shows in 2009 so we believe it is in everybody’s best interest to provide a first-class virtual conference this June and delay the on-site conference itself until early 2010 so it can truly be the largest regional HR technology conference in the industry, as advertised.”
