Reflections from the Strategic Talent Acquisition Event

I look forward to the HCI Strategic Talent Acquisition conference each year. It truly is the perfect storm of event elements. First, there's the Montage client panel up on stage with four very different companies with different brand identity challenges that tie nicely to video interviewing. Second, there's the exhibit hall with the Montage team and other "A" players from within HCM and HR Technology.

Montage clients shared their branding stories at HCI's recent STA event.
