The HR Tech Spotlight

The HR Tech Spotlight

On The HR Tech Spotlight podcast, your host, Deanna Shimota, interviews business leaders in the HR tech market to share each company’s story behind why the technology was created, what top challenges it solves for HR and finance leaders and how it is truly different from the other options out there.
