On-Demand WebinarThe IT leader's top 3 HR-tech priorities for 2022

Why HR data management and HR-tech is business critical

This webinar will highlight the findings from the newly released “The Scandinavian HR-IT Report 2021”, showing that the importance of collaboration between IT and HR has been pushed to the forefront following the pandemic.

Industry experts from Microsoft, Advania, and CatalystOne will discuss and share their insights on what Scandinavian IT leaders have ranked as their top HR-tech priorities for 2022;

  • On- and offboarding (identity and access management)
  • Integrations
  • Data security 

What are the risks of not having full control over HR data? How can you make sure that your employees have the correct access rights – no matter from where they log on? How can you make sure that all accesses are changed or revoked at the correct point in time of a role change or termination?

Our experts with decades of expertise within access management and data security will explain how all of these important questions circle back to HR data management and HR-tech and why it is so business critical.
