Few events during the year rallies the HRO industry as much as the 7th Annual HRO World New York, and this year is no exception. Returning May 5th and 6th to the New York Hilton in the Big Apple, the event is expected to draw hundreds of buyers, providers, and other professionals involved in outsourced HR services.
Once again, the event will showcase best practices in HRO, case studies involving leading practitioners, an exhibition featuring some of the biggest and best providers in the marketplace, and conference sessions aimed at helping HR professionals better leverage outsourcing in their organizations. Much like previous years’ events, the 2009 conference will be one of the most important for the HRO industry, and in light of the dismal economy, the two days of sessions will be especially relevant, according to Elliot Clark, this year’s program chairman.
“HRO World 2009 is a program for buyers to address pressing needs for developing full value from HR services and outsourced operations. It will feature a variety of case studies and interactive learning sessions aimed at responding to our current economic turmoil as well as planning for the future,” Clark said.
As usual, the event will also feature the annual HROA Awards Dinner, which celebrates the industry’s leaders and their accomplishments. However, the venue, scheduled for the evening of May 5th, has been moved to the famous Russian Tea Room instead of the Hilton. The event will recognize unique buyer-provider relationships as well as executives who have made the biggest impact on the industry during the past year.
Focus on Talent
While HR professionals may have their attention diverted from talent management in light of the economic times, this year’s conference will help refocus on the role of talent management on organizations. From recruitment process outsourcing to learning BPO, the program addresses how organizations can better improve talent management and position themselves with the right talent for when economic recovery occurs. Also, while big-box HRO deal-making has declined, it hasn’t gone away totally, and case studies around how outsourcing continues to aid global enterprises will be front and center at the conference. Similarly, other point solutions will be explored as well.
A key panel session will again feature the industry’s top provider executives offering insights into how the current market will affect outsourcing practices and how HRO will be able to help some companies caught in a bind during these difficult times.
This year’s conference will also offer attendees free sessions to meet with experts from around the world specializing in outsourcing practices. HR professionals can book a free 30-minute meeting with some of the top minds in the field and get answers to questions that are unique to their organization.
