100+ HR Technologies Worth Watching in Q4 2016.

hr-technologies-topToday, I’m excited to share my new “HR Technologies to Watch” list with the RecruitingDaily audience. As you may (or may not) know, this is the third installment in the series. In case you’re curious or bored, the previous two lists are Q2 2016 and Q3 2016.

The goal of this list is to give HR & recruiting practitioners a list of interesting technologies – somewhere to start – and the list just so happens to be the technologies that I’m tracking in Q4. This isn’t a popularity contest nor is this post intended for vendors, investors, and/or consultants.  If you’re a practitioner, find something that resonates with you or a particular pain that you’re having and check the company out. Do a demo – share what you learned with your peers.

To make this easy for you, I’ve included a link to both their corporate website as well as their Twitter account.

A few house cleaning things before we get started…

  • These technologies are listed in alphabetical order. Turns out, I love all my children.
    This list, well, like most lists, is NOT exhaustive. Tons of great HR & recruiting tech exists in the world. Tons.
  • Some of these might be firms that I’m an advisor or consultant to. I didn’t denote them within this list as some of the advisory roles are not public yet. If you’re interested, email me and I can walk you through those plays specifically. I have no problem telling you whom I care about, etc. Most of my advisor roles are noted within my LinkedIn bio.
  • The categories are mine, not theirs, meaning, the software firms on the list might see themselves differently than I have noted them. Turns out, it’s kind of hard to categorize HR software. They’ll set the record straight with you during the demo.

Recruiting Daily Presents: The 100+ HR Technologies To Watch | Q4 2016 Edition.

Without further ado, here’s the list:

Well, there you go. I’ll create a new list in January. With errors, please comment below and I’ll review / update. If you think I should look at a particular HR technology, within the comment section, give me the URL and your reasoning. Thanks in advance.

Remember, a demo a day keeps mediocrity away.

And if you love the Twitters, here is a list of Q2, Q3 and Q4 firms.
