It's hard to believe this year's HR Technology Conference is already over. The 19th annual conference brought together the best and brightest innovators and companies in the HR world to explore the latest trends, demo new products and compare best practices. It was a great four days in Chicago, and we're already looking forward to next year.
This year's sessions covered everything from social media to data analytics to women in tech. With 400 vendors in attendance and 65 different sessions spanning 4 days, it was impossible to see it all. So, whether you attended the conference or didn't have a chance to make it this year, we wanted to share a recap of our favorite moments and major themes coming out of the conference.

The Future of Recruiting
It's going to take more than good talent management to keep employees engaged and committed. Embracing "talent mobility" could be the difference between success and failure. William Tincup, President of Recruiting Today, sat down with our own Jason Cosello and Mike Bollinger on Wednesday to discuss how to convey a culture of growth to candidates and use technology to improve the recruiting process.
Advancements in technology have created a whole new world for HR professionals to improve talent management. The problem? According to Barry Libert, CEO of Open Matters, 98 percent of today's organizations are neither truly digital nor networked. In his session, Liebert explored how digital transformation is driving change in IT and how HR leaders can take part in the discussion.
Women in Tech
This year's conference marked the inaugural 'Women in tech' panel attended by an overflowing crowd. The speakers, including our very own chief operating officer, Kirsten Helvey, spoke about how companies can better align the HR process to cultivate, develop and support women in tech.
We hope to see you at next year's HR Tech Conference!
