2018 TekTonic Award Winners

Meet five game-changers that are staying ahead of the HR technology curve.

By Taylor Thompson

With the rise of artificial intelligence (AI) and robotic process automation, HR has faced a year of adaptation and innovation in their business practices in order to keep up with a rapidly changing field. Technology has not only become an integral part of everyday HR processes, but an expectation, especially in regards to organizations’ recruitment efforts.

Jersey Girl and Proud

By Debbie Bolla

Frrr – Agility
