Awesome New Technologies for HR
Participants to be announced in September
This is probably Conference Co-Chair Steve Boese’s favorite session at HR Tech. Why? Because its one
of the sessions that keeps people talking year in and year out. It’s the session where you get to see and
hear live product demonstrations of the best new technology from every part of HR that some of the major
solution providers have developed in the last year. Innovation never stops in HR technology, and the selected industry leaders will be eager to show you their latest and greatest solutions.
GENERAL SESSION | 8: 30 - 9:45 a.m.

As the HR Tech Conference celebrates its 20th Anniversary, it’s natural to take a moment to reflect on the
incredible amount and pace of change in HR technology, Human Resources and workplaces over that
time. So, if HR tech in 2017 is almost nothing like HR tech in 1997, what does that suggest for the next 20
years? Or even the next five for that matter? What current new innovations and technologies are likely to have
the greatest impact and influence moving forward? Where should HR and HRIT leaders be concentrating
their resources and efforts today, knowing that the pace of innovation and the demands of the market are
only accelerating? Finally, what not yet invented HR technology will dominate the next era of HR tech? Join
key industry executives, HR technology industry researchers and influencers, and cutting-edge senior HR
leaders for a look back but, more importantly, a look forward to what the next 20 years of HR technology may
offer, and how HR leaders can better equip themselves and their organizations for success.
