#HRTechChat is here!

Tomorrow actually — Friday, December 2, at 2 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. PT — where we’ll tackle the question, What are the biggest advantages for HR with HR technology today?

HR practitioners, vendors of HR technologies and services, analysts, journalists and industry observers alike are welcome to participate in the chat and follow the Twitter hashtag #HRTechChat each week.

The questions we’ll cover tomorrow include:

  • Q1: What are the top “technologies” that revolutionized HR the last decade and why?
  • Q2: Is HR behind the technology curve still or catching up? Why?
  • Q3: What are some key technology trends that HR must embrace today and tomorrow? Why?
  • Q4: Who should HR be partnering with internally to drive tech adoption and utilization?

A special thanks to Rob Garcia, VP of Product Development at UpMo, a SaaS-deployed HR system that focuses solely on internal mobility, who helped us with the first round of questions.

#HRTechChat will be a bimonthly Twitter chat focused on human resource technology and its impact on business today brought to you HRO Today’s sister publication, TalentManagementTech (TMT), in collaboration with us, B2B marketing software and services firm HRmarketer.com.

We decided to launch #HRTechChat because out of the dozens in the great HR B2B space, there wasn’t one dedicated to HR technology and business today. More and more HR practitioners, business executives and HR vendors alike are connecting in social networks like Twitter. Twitter chats provide an online forum that all professionals can easily participate in from their Twitter client of choice, and all in 140 characters or less.


What’s exciting for us is that the chat topics will be drawn from SocialEars, our groundbreaking algorithm that captures and analyzes the tweets, blogs and online articles by thousands of HR journalists, analysts and thought leaders. In its first few editions, #HRTechChat will focus on timely trends identified by SocialEars during the month of November, including:

  • Screening and assessing applicants
  • HR outsourcing
  • Mobile recruiting

Co-hosting #HRTechChat with me will be Brent Skinner, regular contributor to HRO Today and former contributing editor to Executive Recruiter News.

So join us tomorrow for #HRTechChat on Twitter or your favorite Twitter client of choice (use TweetChat because you can slow the stream), Friday, December 2, at 2 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. PT.
