Our Top 3 Sessions from HR Tech 2019

For over 20 years, HR Tech has connected HR and IT professionals from businesses of all sizes at its annual conference. This year, the 2019 HR Technology Conference & Expo featured 450+ vendors, saw over 10,000 attendees, and hosted over 100 informative sessions. Over the three day conference, numerous speakers shared their expert advice and predictions for the HR industry’s future.
