Checklist to maximise delegates’ time at CIPD HR Software Show

Checklist launched to maximise delegates’ time at CIPD HR Software Show
As the CIPD’s 2014 HR Software Show draws ever-closer, an insightful checklist has been launched to help delegates maximise their time at the event.
With dozens of exhibitors to see and a jam-packed two-day programme of seminars to attend, it can prove difficult for visitors to accomplish everything they set out to achieve at this popular show. That’s why leading industry resource GPAcomparison has joined forces with experienced exhibitor Cascade HR, to devise the HRSS 2014 crib sheet.
Available for free download, this 6 -page document is designed to make the best use of every minute of this industry-leading exhibition. With so much to typically cram in to only a few hours, the risk of forgetting something or not asking the right questions is incredibly high, believes GPAcomparison’s CEO Denis Barnard.
Commenting on the importance of this helpful checklist, he said: “Every year, hundreds of delegates flock to Olympia London to investigate how technology can revolutionise their departmental efficiencies and, ultimately, their contribution to wider organisational performance. But with the exhibition hall crowded with dozens of suppliers it can be difficult to make best use of valuable time away from the office.
“We therefore want to encourage attendees to do their homework beforehand, so that they remain in control at HRSS and leave with the information they need to make informed business decisions.”
Delegates are being encouraged to download this complimentary resource in the weeks leading up to the show. They will then have access to a wealth of advice-led information and recommendations, including:
·         What preparatory tasks to undertake before the event takes place
·         Ways to optimise time and glean maximum relevant information, whilst at Olympia
·         What to do next, upon returning to the office, to make best use of the information obtained
Cascade HR’s Head of Marketing, Andy Court adds: “The majority of exhibitors at the HR Software Show are there to help, but equally there are some who will simply deliver a generic sales pitch. This is of very little value to HR professionals so we are urging delegates to make their time at the HRSS count. Be specific in your queries, ask for tailored demonstrations and know your requirements inside out before you arrive at Olympia. And if in doubt take this helpful checklist with you, to tick points off as you go around.”
