CoreHR at the CIPD HR Software and Recruitment Show

Next month, CoreHR will be at the CIPD HR Software and Recruitment Show at Olympia, London on 13th-14th June. Not to be missed, technology sits at the heart of this premier show where thousands of HR professionals grace the halls every year and that’s exactly why we’ll be there.

From award-winning payroll to talent management software, smarter HR technology is our game. Make a note in your diary now to come see us and discover CoreHR’s new app alongside our latest and greatest solutions at stand E54. We’re sure it’ll be a highlight of your show!


We’re especially excited this year as our very own Chief Human Resource Officer, Sharon Looney, and CEO, Dean Forbes, will be holding their own insight sessions. Speaking ahead of the event Sharon said, “I’m looking forward to getting in front of a room full of the UK’s HR leaders to talk about a real passion point of mine – and that’s empowering leaders in a digital era”.


Sharon will argue that leaders – be they of individual teams, departments or organisations as a whole – are critical for creating a culture of openness, collaboration and engagement, so it’s important we support them in that role. By outlining three pillars of HR-led change – culture and innovation, leadership development and smarter HR technology – Sharon will explain how by keeping a focus on these crucial factors, HR leaders can get ahead of the game.


Meanwhile Dean has the exciting job of presenting on a topic which he’s been exploring and researching in the last few months – unleashing the full potential of smart talent! Characterised by their ambition, their go-getter attitudes and their desire to drive positive change, smart talent exist in every workplace. Dean explained how “we’ve dug deeper into what this group of incredibly talented – and ultimately profitable – group want and expect from their employers so organisations can better understand how to attract and retain them to inspire others and spark transformative change”.


He went on to say that “the nature of employment has undergone a seismic shift in the last five years, from the rise of the gig economy to portfolio careers. Add to this the fact that many industries are facing a shortage in the supply of workers with relevant skills and we’re faced with an incredibly competitive environment for top talent to thrive in. That’s why I’ll be using this opportunity to rally the current generation of HR leaders around smarter technology that can help them ignite the potential of their talent and unleash people power”. Stay tuned for the research results, which will be released towards the end of this month.


Dean and Sharon, along with the team at CoreHR, will be at stand E54 at the CIPD HR Software Show on 13th-14th June at Olympia London. Dean’s talk is on the Technology and Software Showcase Stage on Wednesday the 13th at 11.45am, and Sharon’s on Thursday the 14th at 11am on the same stage. You can follow #HRSS18 or the website for updates on talk times and exhibition details.
