Live-Stream at HR Tech 16: intrepidHR

intrepidHR was BACK at HR Tech ’16


intrepidHR featured 43 live interviews from Dovetail Booth at the 19th Annual HR Technology Conference and Exposition in October in Chicago.

We’re excited to bring you these incredible conversations with brilliant individuals and experts who work in HR & the services or technologies that support the HR industry.



Special thanks to the intrepid.MEDIA team for, once again, joining us for this outstanding event.

Wellness and #HRfit

Dovetail Software and intrepidHR decided to gain a greater understanding of wellness: how it impacts employees, the employers, and the bottom line. What, ultimately, brings personal, departmental, or organizational success for both employees and employers? Finding answers is our goal. We will uncover thoughts and ideas about wellness during out livestream broadcast at HR Tech, sharing initiatives, thoughts, successes, failures, challenges, technologies, and numerous ideas of what it means to be #HRfit – what it means to have your human resources department part of that success, part of a well-run department, part of employee satisfaction, part of the human engagement at a successful company.

We still believe that any organization’s greatest asset is its people, its talent. There is no product or service ever created or provided that is better than the human heart or human mind.
