People Matters TechHR: A look at Asia’s largest HR & WorkTech conference

Over the last nine years, People Matters TechHR India has transformed into an important movement in the HR tech landscape, providing a platform for businesses, thought leaders, HR professionals, and tech wizards to connect & collectively map the course of the future of work as we know it.

Zappyhire’s experience at TechHR 2023

With an impressive turnout of over 2450+ attendees, 150+ speakers, 80 + sessions, and 110+ HR and  WorkTech solution providers, the event undeniably achieved monumental success.

Featuring distinguished personalities such as Dr. Shashi Tharoor, Papon, and Ankur Warikoo, alongside industry experts like Dr. Tomas Chamorro Premuzic (Chief Innovation Officer, Manpower Group), CK Venkataraman (MD, Titan Company), and Divya Kumar (Group Digital CFO, IKEA Retail, INGKA Group), the event exceeded all expectations.

Across the two days, attendees were treated to an array of enriching masterclasses, engaging Fireside Chats, and thought-provoking Think Tank Panel discussions.

Day 1’s highlight was our Co-founder Jyothis KS moderating a Think Tank Panel discussion featuring Anupama Kaul, Payal Nambiar & Ganesan P.  They delved into the future of talent assessment, leaving the audience with valuable insights:

  1. Emphasizing the need for action: While we talk about AI, the actual adoption is relatively low.
  2. Striking the AI-human balance: Harmony between AI & humans is essential, creating an improved experience that’s ideal for all stakeholders involved.
  3. Discerning AI Application: It’s crucial to identify where AI can add value and where a human touch is irreplaceable.
  4. Refining AI through feedback: The consensus was that collective insights shape the evolution of AI. Gathering feedback from various stakeholders helps fine-tune outcomes.
  5. Addressing human bias in AI: Recognizing and eliminating biases, to make AI a fairer tool was unanimously acknowledged.

Zappyhire’s experience at TechHR 2023 unfolded with impactful & unforgettable experiences- inspiring speeches, captivating performances by artists like Papon, and a bustling booth where our disruptive tech resonated with attendees, especially our innovative Robotic Video Interview feature, which created quite a buzz at the event. 

Conversations & discussions revolved around enhancing company interactions with job seekers, utilizing AI and generative AI, and automating pre-screening

Amidst these enlightening sessions, attendees had the chance to network over dinner and drinks, forging potential partnerships and connections that promise growth and innovation.

  1. Skepticism around AI: Generative AI garnered significant attention, sparking curiosity about how it fits into HR practices. There was interest in its role, but also some skepticism.
  2. Gap in AI adoption:  It was clear that AI is underutilized within the HR community. There’s a need to educate and empower people to use it better.
