human resources. Now, for the first time ever, HR Tech invites human resources leaders from four of
the 50 companies featured on the 2017 list to share the HR strategies and practices that earned their
organizations this elite recognition. You’ll hear how they have raised the bar in areas such as performance

Still So Hard?

Moderator: Kris Dunn, CHRO, Partner, Kinetix
In 2016, organizations were facing a challenging, competitive and tightening labor market. Despite amazing
technology advances, most organizations were reporting longer times to fill open roles and an inability to find
people with the right skills and experience. Fast forward two years and not only do these hiring conditions
persist, in many ways they are becoming even more challenging for organizations. Newer and better
technology solutions continue to evolve to help meet this modern day recruiting challenge, and making
investments in these advanced technologies may just make recruiting easier, faster and more efficient. You’ll
hear from a group of TA tech leaders on how this evolution can help your organization meet that challenge,
and how to best leverage your investments in recruiting technology to achieve better outcomes.
