HR Tech Conference Summary

This year we attended the 2017 HR Tech Conference. After carefully reviewing our notes, we are excited to share what we’ve learned with you! 

Looking back at the HR Tech Conference

HR Tech 2017 is now in the history books. The Benefit Technology Resources (BTR) team is still reflecting on what we heard at the conference. Moreover, we’re thinking of what it means for our broker and employer clients. In our industry, HR Tech is the industry event of the year. There are four days of expert speakers, panels, product demos, networking sessions and a product exposition of more than 400 providers — all focusing on HR technology. This event is attended by most major providers in the industry. Because of this, it’s the go-to place to learn about up and coming start-ups.

We sent our team to gather as much information as possible about new and existing applications, industry trends, and best practices. Our goal was both to learn and to connect with the leaders and teams of the solutions we work with to identify the right technology to address our clients’ HR administration needs. We look forward to sharing detailed information with you in January.
