It took me over a week to write this blog, I was a bit overwhelmed by what I saw at last week’s HR Tech conference in Las Vegas and I wanted to let it all sink in. This conference has gotten so big and, in many ways, so much better than other conferences for background screeners. I remember going to my first HR Tech conference in Chicago so many years ago, there were only a few rows of booths and maybe a few hundred people at most. Last week, if I had to guess there were over ten thousand people and an exhibit hall that was as large as any other conference I’ve been to in the past 20 years. From a screening perspective I can’t say that all our customers were there, but if you didn’t attend you missed out on a huge networking opportunity. Technology and innovation are the future of the industry. If you are sitting on the sidelines and waiting, now would be a good time to get on the bus, or maybe a fast car because you have a lot of catching up to do.
