The 2018 HR Technology Conference is now in the books, having wrapped up about two weeks ago. As I usually do, I’ve spent the time since then mulling over what I heard and saw there, reviewing my notes and tweets and thinking about the show as a whole. The one thing that stood out to me this year is that although the show, of course, still very much focuses on specific technologies and how they are being used to enhance the HR function, there seemed to be an attempt by conference organizers to capture a larger audience beyond the “HR IT” folks and vendors, and maybe try to appeal to what I would refer to (for lack of a better term) as “regular HR folks and practitioners.” This seemed to be evidenced by keynotes and general sessions that included “Dirty Jobs” Mike Rowe, whose message focused more on the value of all types of work rather than on anything specifically tech-focused, and the “Most Admired Companies” panel which, although did speak to workplace technologies, also touched on bigger themes like the need for HR to become more “human” again.
The twitter stream four the conference this year is always chock full of interesting views and tactics. I try and jeep any eye on it daily to see whats happening. If you aren't able to attend, the hashtag #HRtechConf is an excellent way of being there virtually.
