Arguably the hottest tech at HR Tech will be in the Talent Acquisition space. TA Tech has blown up over the past decade with billions of dollars entering the market place in investment. It seems like every single day I'm getting an announcement in my email about the launch of a new TA Tech company.
All of this has caused massive confusion amongst TA leadership in trying to keep it all straight. The common questions are:
- What does the tech even do?
- Do I need this tech?
- Doesn't my ATS do this?
- What is my competition using?
- What should we be using to attract more talent?
It's really just a never-ending list of questions because the TA Tech marketplace has been moving at such a fast pace and the innovation within the space is truly unparalleled in comparison to anything we've seen in the overall HR Tech space, ever!
Luckily, the HR Technology Conference is here to help you feel much smarter about the TA Technology space. On Wednesday at 11am PT in the Venetian Ballroom A & B (come early they tell me this will be a standing room only session), a group of brilliant TA leaders and I, will take the stage tackling the dilemma of Building the Perfect TA Tech Stack! The experts on the panel are some of the top TA Tech brains on the planet - Jessica Lee from Marriott, Allyn Bailey from Intel, and Graham Pionkowski from Bazaarvoice (and of course me!).
The session is designed for both TA leaders and practitioners, but also all those TA Vendors trying to sell to us!
Completely vendor agnostic, which is a fancy way to say, we'll be talking about the TA Tech we love, the TA Tech we use, the TA Tech we wish we could use, and maybe even a few TA Technologies we wish we could punch right in the face!
Our goal is to completely share our own TA Tech Stacks with the audience and have an open dialogue around what's working and what's not working. To help us all have a better understanding around the TA Tech that we see is foundational to our success, and what TA Tech we will need in the future to maintain our success.
It might be the most topical session of the entire show! We all need talent in a big way. Most of us will increase our chances to getting that great talent by having the perfect TA Tech Stack!
