Winning Big in Las Vegas at the 2018 HR Technology Conference

September 17, 2018 Alessandra Williams

Nestled in the middle of the searing hot desert of Nevada are the enchanting bright lights, ringing of slot machines, and towering palm trees that beckon visitors to the renown Sin City destination oasis, not only for dining and entertainment, but for exceptional world-class business events and exhibitions.

This past week, 15,000 HR and IT leaders made their annual excursion to Las Vegas for the 21st Annual HR Tech Conference, the world’s leading independent event on HR and technology. It has become the largest show of its kind to find educational sessions delivered by industry thought-leaders and seasoned practitioners on the entire HR tech landscape. 

The 2018 program offered more than 100 speakers and 70 sessions organized into these categories: AI in HR, CHRO, HR Transformation, Market Landscape, Market Visionaries, Project Success, Research Insights, Talent Acquisition, Talent Management, Technical Success, and Workplace Innovation.

During the week long event, the unbridled enthusiasm and energy was palpable. Discussions surrounding cutting-edge ideas about HR, technology, and the workplace further highlight the pivotal transition that HR is making to embrace new ideas and innovations with automation and software. Attendees had opportunities to test, compare, and evaluate a wide range of technologies that are important to their businesses and save hours of research time.

The RolePoint team appreciated the experience of networking and educating HR and IT executives from all corners of the world on Employee Referrals and Internal Mobility. The team scheduled times to demonstrate our software for hundreds of recognizable companies like Intel, GM, FedEx, Facebook, E*TRADE, Atlassian, PWC, Morgan Stanley, Visa, IBM, Buzzfeed, Tiffany & Co, and more. Additionally, RolePoint sponsored exciting employee referral program prizes, such as Amazon Echo Dots and Amazon gift cards, to help support companies in building a powerful culture of hiring and retaining top talent with robust and intuitive tools like the RolePoint platform.

We always look forward to engaging with passionate HR leaders and highly recommend this Las Vegas conference to those looking for the must-attend HR event of the year.

Be sure to save the date for next year’s HR Tech Conference back at The Venetian on October 1-4, 2019.

We look forward to connecting with you!
