Background of the Association

Originally founded in 2003 as the HROA, the association has been open to anyone in the HR Outsourcing and Transformation industry, including practitioners, buyers, providers, technology firms, advisors, consultants, attorneys, and academics.  The primary objectives of the association were to provide networking and a marketplace for buyers and providers at a time when outsourcing was in its infancy. Today outsourcing is one of many service delivery vehicles available to HR leads and has resulted in the next iteration of the association and its progression to a new level with a broader remit of services and technology.

In November 2013, the then Trustees of the Association representing Practitioners, Providers, and Advisors voted unanimously on a plan to evolve the HROA to broaden its reach and scope under the leadership of SharedXpertise, owners of the HRO Today brand. On January 1st, 2014, the HROA was renamed HRO Today Services and Technology Association.

On May 6, 2019, the HRO Today Services and Technology Association officially became the HRO Today Association.
