HR employee portals, online recruitment, mandatory e-filing of employee returns – all require considerable change to the HR and payroll department and its corporate infrastructure.
Softworld HR & Payroll 2004 (3-4 March 2004, Grand Hall, Olympia, London) will tackle these issues head-on with its ‘business focus’ masterclass stream offering free expert and independent advice to HR & payroll professionals.
In addition, issues such as the effects on legislative change, human capital management, HR metrics and business strategy, and the development of a high performance workforce, will be covered with real-life examples and advice.
Softworld HR & Payroll 2004 also features an exhibition of leading suppliers of HR & Payroll software, such as Northgate Information Solutions (UK) Ltd, Peoplesoft UK, Ltd and Sage Software (UK) Ltd.
This year over 70% of exhibitors to Softworld HR & Payroll will be presenting new products, many of which are also taking part in seminars focusing on four key themes: e-HR, knowledge management / reporting, training & recruitment, and payroll. As sponsors of the event, HR Zone will be bringing you more details on the exhibitors and new product launches soon.
Over 60% of attendees to last year’s Softworld HR & Payroll event said they would like to be updated on upcoming payroll legislation and employment law, with a high proportion of those seeking to implement HR & Payroll systems to drive business change in light of these regulations.
Outsourcing ROI based processes, the adoption of an effective online recruitment strategy, employment law and payroll legislative changes are among the topics to be covered in the new business focus stream.This new business stream will run alongside the traditional ‘software selection’ masterclass sessions. These offer essential and practical advice on how to make informed software selection decisions on the show floor, featuring comprehensive case studies.
Liz Wood, Portfolio Director of Softworld HR & Payroll 2004 said: “The HR professional has to cope with massive change at this time. European and British legislative changes on employment law; the technological move to employee portals and e-filing of employee returns, have left many with a huge hill to climb. Softworld is THE forum for all HR and payroll professionals. It’s the perfect opportunity to meet new contacts, whilst also keeping up to date with new legislation.
