“There has been more money invested in HR Tech in the last three years than the last twenty years combined!” says Bret Starr, Founder and CEO of The Starr Conspiracy. This is evidence that the market has been evolving, and the conference provided numerous insights into what HR professionals must do to adapt.

Among these insights were statistics provided by the latest Sierra Cedar HR Systems Survey. This survey is the longest-running and most widely published research in the HR industry. This year, some of the most significant data to emerge included how HR technology has evolved across all sectors and how vendor satisfaction rates have increased by 5 percent over the past year.

When asked about the major trends of this year’s conference, BTR’s own Jamie Hawkins said “Innovation played an important role in this year’s presentations. In the HR Hack Lab, we learned that employees are constantly surrounded by the opportunities to innovate. We just need to learn to identify and take those risks when they arise. There is a difference between management and leadership. At this point in time, HR tech needs great leaders to correspond with the increase in demand for viable and sustainable systems solutions.”
