HR.com, the largest network of human resources (HR) executives, resources and education for HR, has opened registration for the second annual Global HR Tech Virtual Symposium, happening October 5 – 9, 2020.
The symposium was designed to help the HR community keep up with constant changes in HR technologies. The current global pandemic has proven to require an even stronger need for the latest, most secure HR technology and software to keep teams connected, productive, and safe. All aspects of the symposium are crafted to help HR professionals feel confident implementing new technology within their organizations.
Recognized as the largest HR tech event last year, the Global HR Tech Virtual Symposium welcomed more than 16,400 registrations from around the world, with registrants from more than fifteen countries.
