JOHANNESBURG, January 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- "Survey findings of the 2010 State of Global People Management research, released by Massachusetts-based international people management software company Softscape, reveals that organisations that integrate talent processes, systems and data on performance, succession planning, compensation, learning & development and recruitment have outperformed those organisations that have yet to integrate by 41%," reveals Leon Mouton, Director of the Leadership Academy at Nelson Mandela Business School.

At the same time, in Africa's accelerating business climate, executives have set their sights on HR integration to revolutionalise the traditional HR function to become a strategic component in driving profitability. As companies are gearing towards selecting and implementing specialised solutions, industry experts from AngloGold Ashanti, Standard Bank, Vodacom, SNC Lavalin, Safal Group, Nestle and Du Pont will be gathering at the HR Technology Africa conference to discuss how to make the most of the current versatility and depth of technology available today.

Facilitated by Hatem El Houshy, HR Advisor at SNC Lavalin, the conference will examine solutions and strategies to help organisations align IT with HR transformation strategy. Paul Hatch, Manager for Global HR Systems at AngloGold Ashanti will present a case for implementing a global HR Information System (HRIS) to deal with a continuously growing global workforce. As conference Chairman, El Houshy will deliver a practical insight to creating a value driven business case for efficient HR transformation and project life-cycle planning and implementation. The second workshop will address the more niche and highly topical Human Resources Outsourcing (HRO) opportunities presented by globalisation.

HR Technology Africa will take place between 11-14 April 2011 in Johannesburg, Sandton Sun, South Africa.
