AHRI Victorian HRIS SIG Discussion Forum

The Victorian HRIS Special Interest Group is running a discussion forum to review HR systems over the next 10 years. Discussion forums provide an informal and flexible face to face environment for people who are interested in HR systems to meet, discuss and network around a specific topic. We will not have keynote speakers, presentations, and so forth. There is no distinction between presenters and audience; every participant can contribute to the conversation. Members of the SIG organising committee will be on hand to lead groups covering four difference aspects impacting the future of HR systems, during the discussions please feel free to move among the groups as you see fit. The different topics will be:-

  • Globalisation

How is globalisation impacting on HR Systems and what can we do to prepare for these changes? How should HR Systems be developing to meet the requirements of business globalisation?

  • Culture

Deployment of HR systems can’t be successful without an accepting, innovative, flexible culture that embraces change. How do we drive cultural change and the embrace of new systems and processes? What works? What doesn’t?

  • Business

Integrating HR data with key business data provides powerful evidence of viability and sustainability. Over the coming years to what degree will your business viability/sustainability be dependant on your HR System? Is it relevant now?

  • Technology

HR systems by their very nature are heavily reliant on technology; this technology seems to be changing at an increasing speed. How do changes in technology impact your HR systems? Should you be paying attend to the current trends such as Open Source, Software as a Service, and Mobility in making purchasing decisions?
