Curious about a future fully catered to the candidate?
The shrinking pool of available talent is making it difficult for companies to attract and retain top talent. Quit rates are up, and employers are being forced to raise wages, perks and benefits in an effort to better attract candidates. But it should be no surprise to find the companies themselves may still be their own worst enemy.

The events last week in Las Vegas have weighed heavy on my mind as HRTech begins this morning. Honestly, I am struggling with wrapping my arms around it all. My Lyft driver last night was sincerely "raw" as she talked about how the events unfolded and what has weighed over the hearts and minds of the city's residents since then. I feel guilty, actually, as I sit here drinking my latte and going on with my life as if nothing has happened, but that's another blog for another day, I suppose.
