2015 iTalent Competition November in Amsterdam will Reward Innovation in HR Technology

June 2, 2015 – HRO Today Forum Europe announces the launch of the 4th annual iTalent HR Technology Innovation Competition, to be held on November 12th during the Forum event in Amsterdam.

Designed to reward innovative HR technology companies that are leading the way in helping businesses recruit and retain employees, the competition is open to any technology company operating within the HR sector, including payroll, recruitment, talent management and learning, among others. Start-ups, new businesses and new offerings from established companies are all equally welcome, as long as they offer services in Europe, or plan to in the very near future.

Entries to the competition are being accepted until Friday 25th September. A shortlist of five will be announced in early October, with the top five entries competing in the iTalent competition at the HRO Today Forum Europe on Wednesday 12th November. Each of these shortlisted entries will give a timed, seven-minute HR innovation pitch before the event audience and a judging panel of HR experts and practitioners, industry analysts, and technology investors. Each iTalent pitch will be assessed by the judges, and both they and the audience will vote to select the overall winner, who will be announced at the event. They will receive consultations with the judging panel of experts and investors, one-to-one meetings with HR executives attending the HRO Today Forum, as well as a profile in HRO Today magazine.

Last year’s winner was Chequed.com. VP of Business Development George Ehinger said: “Thanks to HRO Today Forum, the panel of judges, and the in-person and online audiences for recognizing Chequed.com. Chequed.com provides cloud-based tools for predictive pre-employment screening technology. Our solution combines behavioural science with automation to streamline the pre-employment process so we can live up to our slogan of ‘No Bad Hires’.”

This year’s event in Amsterdam will bring together over 250 senior HR practitioners during two days to discuss and debate the most pressing HR issues, HR innovation and how to better link HR performance to business outcomes. Event sponsors include Graebel Relocation Services, Futurestep, AdvantageXPO, Pontoon, Cielo, WilsonHCG, Alexander Mann Solutions, Accenture, PeopleScout, SevenStep, and Career Builder.
