About HR Tech Insights
When it comes to planning our own development and growth opportunities, the past year feels like a wash, as many planned conferences and expos were either canceled or quickly pivoted to online sessions.
This event is a part of our demo series for HR leaders 100 percent online and will feature a virtual interactive demo from Ultimate Kronos Group (UKG).
Built from a merger that created one of the largest cloud companies in the world, UKG is a leading global provider of HCM, payroll, HR service delivery, and workforce management solutions that help organizations drive better business outcomes, improve HR effectiveness, and make work a more connected experience for everyone.
