And the InfluenceHR Award Goes to …

One of the benefits of conducting so much market research is that we’re exposed to a lot of brands in the HCM software and solutions space. The Starr Conspiracy knows what brands are gaining traction in aided and unaided recall questions and functional association questions. We routinely see the data across all categories of HR technology.
