Hire Velocity Sponsors HRO Today Forum in Washington D.C. for 2nd Year
Tuesday, March 27, 2018 – Atlanta, GA: Hire Velocity, a leader in total workforce solutions and recruitment process outsourcing, has announced that Chairman and entrepreneurial investor, John West, will be a speaker at the 2018 HRO Today Forum in Washington D.C. on Tuesday, May 1st. John draws upon a distinguished 30+ year career in technology entrepreneurship and investing to lead a fast-paced and dynamic presentation on “Will Technology Replace RPO?,” emphasizing the impact of next-generation technology, including Machine Learning, AI, and Blockchain, on the future of RPO.
With the promise of self-driving cars on the horizon, we’re in the age of AI, Machine Learning and Blockchain technology, where these technologies ‘learn’ from us to mimic human behavior. Will the rapid deployment of these technologies mimicking human behavior replace RPO, or will they create a different approach to RPO solutions? Can we merge the multitude of new technologies into one ‘super recruiting solution,’ or will RPO evolve to become the focal point of integrating multiple technologies to offer better solutions and overall customer experience?
“I am continually impressed by how quickly new technology concepts are changing our world,” said West. “This is especially true in recruitment and the overall human capital space. These are exciting times for entrepreneurs, investors and the progressive innovators that adopt these new ways of doing business. We’re excited to partner with HRO Today to share our insights on how new technology is impacting the way we do business every day as Talent Acquisition and HR experts.”
In addition to John’s presentation, Hire Velocity will sponsor not only the HRO Today Forum Awards Gala but also the HRO Today Forum as a whole. The HRO Today Forum will take place at the MGM National Harbor, out of Washington D.C., from April 30th – May 2nd Hire Velocity is sponsoring the HRO Today Forum Awards Gala on the evening of Monday, April 30th. The Awards Gala honors and recognizes the top Chief HR Officers in North America and culminates with announcing the winners of the coveted HRO Today CHRO of the Year awards in several categories.
