I am pleased to report the 2020 HRO Today Association Conference, held on NovemberÂ 17, had record attendance, with more than 100 participants coming together to hearÂ the latest strategies for using technology to attract and retain talent. Attendees usedÂ our interactive platform to jump from virtual table to table during the breaks toÂ network with their peers. HR leaders in attendance included chief HR officers and talentÂ acquisition leaders from across North America and Europe.
A highlight of the conference was the presentation of the 2020 HRO Today AssociationÂ Awards for North America and EMEA, hosted by Madison. I encourage you to visit theÂ association website for a recap of the event and fullÂ list of award winners. Iâd like to thank our sponsors for their support: Yoh, Pontoon, Madison, ISG, ResourceÂ Solutions, and Engage2Excel. I look forward to sharing our plans for next yearâs conference in the comingÂ months.
This past year, while filled with stress and uncertainty, also showcased just how essential HR professionalsÂ are, as well as the power and strength of the HR community. The HRO Today Association is dedicated toÂ ensuring our members can connect with one another and our professional development opportunitiesÂ virtually. One of the most effective ways to improve operations is to learn and apply the best practices of like-mindedÂ individuals. Backed by the resources of HRO Today, the association curates a menu of professionalÂ development opportunities led by HR thought leaders and delivered in convenient formats designed forÂ todayâs executives. If youâre reading this and are not yet a member, now is the perfect time to join and ensureÂ your team has the support they need as we head into 2021.
