Selecting
and implementing the right HR and payroll system for your organisation

This

within organisations. It will offer a practical framework for decision-making
when selecting and implementing applications. It will suggest some probing
questions to help ensure an organisation selects, implements and develops
technology to provide maximum return on investment.

Steve

Leveraging
self-service applications to provide greater employee empowerment

The
concept of self-service is not new, but are organisations using it to its full
potential? This session looks at how organisations in the UK and the US have
managed to integrate self-service. It will also provide insights into gaining
employee buy-in, managing both cultural and general change as well as
integrating self-service into intranet HR portals.

Jane
Voisey, senior manager, PricewaterhouseCoopers

Using
electronic document processing to improve staff services and drive down costs

Companies
are adopting the PC as the norm for generation, but not distribution of
documents. HR is at the centre of employee/employer communication. Form
processing, document management and workflow are at the heart of improving both
the effectiveness and service levels in staff relationships. This session describes
the technology and benefits of developing "electronic processing" for
delivering HR services through local and web-based systems.

Martin
Waldron, founder of In-Form Systems

Integrating
HR and payroll: let battle commence!

This

shared and individual processes and the wider community.

Ian
Lithgow, PricewaterhouseCoopers

Exploiting
intellectual capital for greater knowledge management and competitive advantage

As
one of an organisation’s most valuable assets, collective knowledge can provide
excellent competitive advantage. This session will provide some of the latest
