Due to the technological movement in HR and recruitment departments, there has been a need for innovative thinking of the HR function. In addition, there is an increasing tendency for technology utilization to support recruitment, retention, development and settlement activities.

Therefore, Sylvester & co decided to host Nordic HR Tech Day 2018, focusing on the latest technology solutions and systems for HR professionals. At the conference participants learned how to make the HR function more data-driven, and eventually cheaper, better and more efficient.

Nordic HR Tech Days 2019 will take place during the spring at a centrally located venue in Copenhagen. The conference will be a two-day conference with a different agenda each day. Participants will have the opportunity to join either one or both of the two days. Read more at Nordic HR Conferences website.

The world’s best customer experience, internally as well as externally. Digitization of HR – part of the strategic agenda

More and more organizations are realizing the benefits of digitising their HR-processes and streamlining all their HR efforts, by implementing a modern cloud-based
HCM-system. CatalystOne is one of the leading Nordic providers of HCM software and HR-systems, with over 200 customers and hundreds of thousands of users
around the world. CatalystOne’s customer; Nordnet Bank, will present their journey and experiences with implementing an HCM-system in their organization.

The company’s ambition and strategy. Nordnet Bank want to provide the best customer experience in the world and HR plays a crucial role, since HR must provide the foundation for the managers and employees to execute on the strategy with speed and precision.

Nordnet Bank’s employee lifecycle. Each company have their own employee lifecycle, and Nordnet Bank will show how theirs are structured and how the employee lifecycle is supported by their HCM system and which advantages it provides in the different stages.

Examples from the system. It is always more interesting to see it for yourself, so Nordnet Bank will go through examples of how the system is implemented, how the system is set up and how it supports the everyday HR processes.

How Nordnet Bank chose their HR system. Deciding on which system/supplier to choose is not an easy task, but Nordnet Bank will describe their procurement process. How they started from a long wish list and a demand specification, to supplier evaluation and building the business case.

What did Nordnet Bank learn from the process? Jenny Garneij will give her personal advice for you that are considering investing in a new HCM-system and tell you what they learned along the way.

Kasper Hulthin (DK)
Co-Founder, Peakon

From Customer Experience to Employee Experience

Over the past 10 years, virtually all digital development was about understanding and improving the customer experience. The next 10 years will be about understanding and improving, the employee experience.

Employee expectations have changed, it has become more difficult to attract and retain talent, especially in more traditional industries, and a large amount of the workforce is leaving workplace soon. It is, therefore, urgent to understand what drives employees to grow, develop and ultimately recommend the company to others.

As HR, or Employee Experience analytics, is about a decade behind customer experience analytics, there is plenty to learn. Could you imagine a marketing department that only measures and tries to understand their customers based on a single annual survey? Or running a marketing department without using data? Can you sell a product that does not have a good customer experience? Unlikely.

How can you use data to understand what drives the employee's engagement and willingness to recommend the company as a place to work. Is it possible to predict if people want to leave the company based on data? What is the difference in engagement between a sales department and an engineering department, and in terms of roles, age, tenure etc.? Could a better employee experience ultimately change employees' views of HR?
