This month we’re highlighting technologies across the TA and HR landscape that we think exemplify the innovation happening across HRTech.  This space is changing rapidly, and allowing People teams to better build best in class organizations through the smart use of the right tools.

The companies below hit our radar in one of two ways.  First off, we do a lot of research into WorkTech and try to always stay on top of what’s happening in this ecosystem.  This means demos with vendors, meetings with VCs, and lots of research!

More importantly, we run into stellar HR/TA software through our connections with various People leaders.  We rely heavily on the advice and insights from forward thinking practitioners who are on the front lines every day doing the hard work to build industry leading organizations.

Here’s our latest list of the best HR software vendors that need to be on every People leader’s radar:

Greenhouse: Greenhouse’s applicant tracking system has grown into one of the industry leaders since their founding in 2010.  They’ve raised $110 million from top tier VCs, which has allowed them to build an ATS that combines traditional applicant tracking with a CRM. Additionally, Greenhouse’s best in class APIs mean hundreds of other HR vendors have built integrations into their solution.
