HORSHAM, Pa., June 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The HR Technology Conference & Exposition® first annual “Pitchfest” event continues to gain significant momentum, especially given a new sponsorship from the Randstad Innovation Fund. Designed to recognize startups that are contributing to the future of work, Pitchfest has partnered with Randstad Innovation Fund to offer a single $25,000 prize to the winner of the first annual competition, as well as a $5,000 diversity prize.
One of my favorite parts of the HR Technology conference is walking the expo floor with Steve Boese before it opens and taking pictures. It's a treat to spend time with Steve and hear his take on how HR Tech is evolving each year. I especially love watching the expo go from an empty shell to a vibrant display of people and possibilities.
The 2017 edition of the HR Technology Conference wrapped up about a week and a half ago, and other than transitioning back to my real world day-to-day responsibilities, I’ve also spent the time since then processing what I heard and what I learned. When I attend a conference, I usually like to hold off writing about it until a little while afterwards because I like to take a look back at my notes, scribbles, and tweets and see if there is some sort of theme that emerges, especially from an HR practitioner perspective. And when I did so this year, the one thing that came across loud and clear can be summed up in a quote from Friday keynote speaker Josh Bersin – “People Still Matter.”
Kris Dunn, partner and CHRO at Kinetix, shares his perspective on HR technology selection and adoption, video recruiting and predictions for the future.

Although it’s still the middle of the sultry summer and it seems like the cooler days of the Fall are still a long way off, like it or not they’ll be here before we know it. And when I think of Fall, that always brings one thing to mind….the HR Technology Conference. This year’s show is scheduled from October 18th-21st, at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
