"Awesome New Technologies for HR" has consistently been one of the most popular and widely anticipated sessions of the HR Technology® Conference. New for 2014, it will be divided into two sessions for two distinct categories: as announced on September 9th, one highlighting startup companies and the other to showcase solutions from more established providers. The "Awesome New Technologies for HR" session highlighting these six established companies will take place on Thursday, October 9 at 1:30 p.m.

HR Technology® Conference Co-Chair Steve Boese commented, "The HR industry is characterized by constant change and shifting market demands, necessitating that even the most established providers continually develop new solutions and enhancements in order to remain competitive. The companies featured in the 'Awesome New Technologies for HR' session have shown their ability to keep up with this evolution and create cutting-edge solutions that promise to improve every aspect of HR."

"Selecting just six participants from the many established HR technology companies that have brought new solutions to market this year was no easy task," said Boese. "However, based on their usability, level of innovation and potential to solve some of the biggest HR challenges, the six providers to be featured in the 'Awesome New Technologies for HR' session have developed technologies that truly stand out and promise to change the industry for the better. We look forward to showcasing these solutions in October and seeing them in action."
