As I mentioned the other day, one of the sessions I’m looking forward to at next week’s HR Technology Conference & Exposition is “Awesome New Technologies for 2014”. Another not-to-be-missed session is “Awesome New Startups for HR” which will be held on the morning of Friday October 10th. This is the first-ever session of its kind at the conference. The session is described as one that highlights innovative HR solutions that disrupt the status quo and, according to conference organizers “The “Awesome New Startups for HR” session will introduce attendees to the best of the best of these organizations, as each company will demonstrate its solutions and show how they can make an impact, push the envelope and force the bigger, more established players to stay on their toes.”
The organizations selected to present at this session are:
Ajax Workforce Marketing Ajax Workforce Marketing’s BrandAmp shows employees how advocacy benefits them as individuals, gives them the opportunity to opt-in to the company’s brand and uses their choices to get HR and marketing the feedback they need to know which parts of the brand resonate with employees.
