Even before the pandemic it was a challenge to shop and learn about HR technology and services. COVID throws another wrinkle into things even with conferences and events opening up in the near future. At Workology, we reach 700,000 HR and workplace leaders every month with our newsletter, podcast, and online resources at Workology.com. I’ve been getting requests from many of you asking for ways to connect with different companies that will give you the opportunity to research and learn about them BEFORE signing up for a demo or answering your phone. 

Episode 300: HR Tech Insights Featuring Andres Blank, Scott Bissessar and Ben Herman 

 

This interview is part of a new series called HR Tech Insights for the Workology Podcast. It’s an opportunity for you, the HR leader, to quickly learn about different companies, their solutions, the company sizes and verticals they serve, and a quick case study of the problems they solve. Think of it like walking an expo floor, but without the free swag and cocktails. The good news is there is no travel or expense involved. Each episode in the HR Tech Insights series features three 7-10 minute interviews with different HR tech and service providers. 

Meet Andres Blank

Andres Blank is the co-founder and CEO of Fetcher, a full-service, recruiting automation platform that helps hundreds of companies hire diverse, top talent faster. He was previously the founder and COO of Pixable, a consumer mobile company with over 5 million users that sold to Singtel for $30M in less than 3 years. Andres started Pixable while he was pursuing his MBA at MIT, and before moving to Boston, Andres started three companies in his home country, Venezuela. Andres Blank on LinkedIn.

Meet Scott Bissessar

Founder & CEO of ChangeVU, a 20+ year leader in global change implementation, Scott is the driver behind ChangeVU’s SuccessFactors analytics database and automated change platform proven to radically improve implementation success rates. Scott Bissessar on LinkedIn.

Meet Ben Herman 

Ben Herman is the founder and CEO of Canvas, the Diversity Recruiting Platform that companies like Lyft, Headspace, Airbnb & Dropbox use to understand the diversity of their recruiting pipeline, source underrepresented talent, and measure the ROI of their diversity recruiting initiatives. Ben grew up in London, dropped out of high school, became a recruiter and was running his own agency by the time he was 21. After growing the company to 15 people and $11M in annual revenue, he realized that there must be a better way to match great companies with great people and started Canvas. Ben Herman on LinkedIn.

I’m all about arming HR and workplace leaders with resources and information to help them support their organizations. That includes finding great HR tech and service providers. You can visit the show notes of this episode at Workology.com where I’m including each person we’ve talked to’s LinkedIn profile and company information. Feel free to reach out to them directly. Make sure you tell them you heard about them on the Workology Podcast! This episode is part of our HR Tech Insights series and is sponsored by UpSkill HR and Ace the Exam.
