HR Tech has certainly come a long way. If you check out Angel List and look up every HR Tech Startup that is listed in their database, you will see almost 200 startups with almost 1,000 investors and 100 different jobs currently being offered. Since New Year’s Day, there are already four new HR Tech Startups listed. Most people have no clue that this industry is literally booming right now. Unless you work in human resources, most people wouldn’t even know that every year, Las Vegas holds a massive conference for HR technology. In fact, almost 9,000 attendees make it each year, with more than 300 exhibiting companies and over 75 new product announcements.
So why is this industry booming? What’s going on right now that wasn’t going on before? Back in October, HR Dive caught up with some HR professionals who gave us some insights on what what’s happening and what to look for.
