Leverage Technology as a Strategic Lever for Transformation, Not Just Automation.

“Technology is a strategic growth driver. HR teams should focus on technology as an opportunity to transform business, and not just for process automation. ”

by  Sriram Iyer, Founder & CEO, hrtech.sg

 hrtech.sg's TechTalks focus on engaging with HR & HRTech Subject Matter Experts to unearth latest trends & insights in the realm of HR Technology.

In this edition, we talk to Sudarsan Ravi, Founder & CEO, RippleHire.

During our conversation with Sudarshan, we discussed the following aspects:

  • Business and talent challenges faced by companies
  • Why are organizations hesitating to invest in technology for the HR function? 
  • How does Ripplehire help client HR teams get buy-in from the leadership for the investment in HR Tech?
  • Future of the post-pandemic workplace
  • Advice for enterprises looking to embark on their Digital HR Journey


Here are some key takeaways from the TechTalks discussion:

  • Technology is a strategic driver of growth. HR teams should focus on technology as an opportunity for growth and business transformation, and not just for process automation.
  • Post-pandemic workplace is going to be hybrid. Leadership teams have to invest time in clearly articulating the immense value to employees on why they should “return-to-office”. 
  • “Implementation go-live” is not the end of the journey, but actually the beginning.
  • Referrals drive better retention; reduces cost per hire and helps in distributing rewards within the organization.
