DigitalHR Middle East Africa (MEA) in Dubai - January 2020
This conference, DigitalHR Middle East Africa (MEA), will focus on driving results through data and technology for HR practitioners across the Middle East and Africa by presenting and discussing global best practice and reconciling it with local market know-how and insights.
We will hear from seasoned HR industry leaders from across MEA on what forward-thinking organisations are currently doing to optimise talent acquisition and enhance the 'employee experience' by utilising different technologies, digital platforms and leveraging data.
We will be joined by CIPD, a professional body for HR and people development with hubs in the UK, Ireland, Middle East and Asia and over 100,000 members globally.
In the CIPD presentation, 'The Future of Work is Human', Ramy Bayyour, General Manager, CIPD - Middle East, will share insights into the pressing need to revisit the role of humans at the precipice of great technological disruption.
