HR Technologies to Watch – Q2, 2016
Recently I told a group of HR and recruiting professionals that they should keep up with the ever-changing HR technology market by participating in 3-4 software demos a week. You might wonder why I said this… well, partly for professional development, partly because I don’t want them to be blindsided by advancements in HR tech, and, partly because I’m a geek and I want them to bear witness to the cool things that are happening in our market. I told the group that if they had trouble determining where to start to email me, and I’d build a list for them. Well, then 40 emails happened. Turns out, when you offer to do something like this, people take you up on it. Weird. So, I built a list of firms I’m tracking in Q2. This is a fraction of the nearly 21,000 HR & recruiting software products in the world. And, I’ll probably add to the list from week to week in Q2. 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 categorise HR software. They’ll set the record straight with you during the demo.
Without further ado, here’s the list:

If you think we (Royal We?) should look at a particular HR technology, within the comment section, give us the URL and your reasoning. Thanks in advance.
And if you love the Twitters, I’ve built a list of these firms.
