Mark Stelzner of IAHR on HR Tech Implementation

Mark Stelzner popped by our booth, taking time out of his busy schedule to share some insights and advice regarding the implementation of HR Tech – “It’s never over!”

Mark presented, “How Do You Build an Entire HR Technology Roadmap” at the conference and took a few minutes out of his very busy schedule to teach us a bit about the changes that are happening and need to happen in HR Tech – we need to see a return to great customer service as more and more HR suite solutions move to the cloud, as “This is about people.”

“With the ferocity of change,
good client vendors are releasing new functionality
at a pace and cadence that is unprecedented.” – Mark Stelzner
