While OFCCP compliance, recruiting, and leadership are typically a part of a human resource professional’s role, technology also plays a part in the development of strategies and initiatives. This year we’ve made some exciting additions to the DirectEmployers 2013 Annual Meeting taking place October 21-24 in San Diego, California. To take our conference full circle, we’ve added an entire educational track dedicated to technology. This not only gives attendees more options when choosing sessions, but also exposes them to the latest innovations and best practices implemented by employers of all sizes and within a variety of industries.
