April 10, 2024 at 11:00 AM PST/ 2.00 PM EST


Your HR tech stack can either be your best friend or your worst enemy. 

Modern HR professionals make use of various software solutions for everything from managing benefits, to learning and development, to increasing engagement. But how do you make sure you have the optimal solutions for your company? How do you avoid choosing vendors that don’t fit your needs, don’t deliver quality service, or just don’t give you the best deal for your budget?

In this webinar, our Senior People and Talent Manager Julia Fulton will be speaking to Alison Hunter, HR Tech Editor of Select Software Reviews, about the most common mistakes People Leaders make when choosing HR software, and how to avoid them. They’ll discuss how to define your needs with your internal stakeholders, vet vendors properly, negotiate contracts, and more.
