As an HR or business leader who understands the value and importance of HR technology in helping your organization meet its talent challenges, you probably have plenty of ideas about your “dream” or ideal HR tech solution that just hasn’t been created yet. You know, that ideal solution you could use to advance your organization forward. What would it be? Well, here’s your chance to push that dream a little closer to reality. Building upon our popular HR Tech Conference Hackathon Reveal, the HR Hacklab will help you better understand and conceptualize how your “dream” solution might be manifested. Plus, you’ll get to partner with this year’s Hackathon participants as they design and develop your solution to present at the HR Tech Hackathon session on Thursday. Jason Lauritsen and Joe Gerstandt, creators of the “HR Hacklab” concept, will demonstrate how some of the core tenets of “hacking” are applicable to HR and the continued evolution of the organization, and will facilitate a conversation designed to frame your ideas for a new, “dream” HR technology into a set of challenges for the Hackathon teams to attack. The Hacklab gives you the chance to work collaboratively with fellow HR leaders and some of the most talented technical teams in the industry to design the next great HR solution. And the best part? In less than 48 hours you’ll get to see your vision come to life when the Hackathon teams demonstrate your shared creation.
