Two very clear trends stood out at this year's SHRM Annual Conference: First, there is the clamor for HR to be more strategic -- a call which has now reached a fever pitch. The second is that technology solutions are flooding the market. As HR professionals roamed aisles and aisles of vendors vying for their attention, many appeared to very much at sea -- without direction, not sure where to turn next.

That's what this program aims to do: help guide you through the sea of solutions out there. Rusty Lindquist from BambooHR and Chris Webber of Centrify will provide a framework you can use to prioritize the problems you're trying to solve and guide you on what to shop for and how to choose wisely. And, they'll steer you away from bad decisions by alerting you to warning signs that the products you're considering don't fit your needs.

This one-of-a-kind program will help you navigate the ocean of technological possibilities, with a focus on those that can help lift you out of operational roles and into the strategic ones.
