Albert Camus said that autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. For me, autumn is all about sweater weather, pumpkin spice lattes and apple picking here in America. Honeycrisp apples are supposed to kick major booty this year. Who’s thrilled?
Unfortunately, I developed an allergy to apples while I worked as a recruiter in Chicago. I am also allergic to horrible human resources technology and the complicated ways we are asked to sort through what works and what doesn’t.
Bad HR tech gives me a headache!
There are a proliferation of solutions on the market — that promise to help companies do everything from acquire great talent to create diverse talent pools — and it’s tough to know where to start. How do HR consumers evaluate all the talent acquisition solutions out there? Where do you find unbiased resources that you can trust?
Those are important questions, which is why the month of October is all about technology for our esteemed group of talent advisors. The world-famous HR Technology® Conference & Exposition takes place in mid-October. We will feature articles from seasoned talent advisors and leaders who understand what it’s like to use technology from the moment you acquire a resume to the minute you extend a job offer.
Our writers know the talent acquisition space. They will advise on how small teams can use HR technology more efficiently, and how your company’s culture can be enhanced by using talent pools and cloud-based solutions to win the war for talent.
I’ve also asked our writers to break down HR technology concepts — from analytics to contextual search — and talk to you about significant trends using manageable and concise language. We promise to help you understand why HR technology matters and see the sexiness behind payroll software without having an allergic reaction to buzzwords and jargon.
It’s our collective goal to help you learn more about the best trends in HR technology. Are you stressed about the seemingly endless tech solutions out there? Are you allergic to HR tech drama? Are there other headaches as an HR professional that you need to get out of your system?
To gear up for the 18th annual HR Technology Conference, we’d love for you to share your biggest HR problem with us on Twitter and include the #HRHeadaches hashtag. You’ll feel better, and you’ll be eligible to win some sweet prizes during the conference.
The more tweets you share, the more chances you have to win!
