The victors in this new War for Talent will be those that have the most knowledgeable recruiters supported by the best TA technology. TAtech Live, therefore is a program uniquely designed to prepare employers for post-Covid-19 business acceleration.

The content for the sessions will be hype- and techno-jargon-free. The goal is to provide clear and useful presentations on some of the best talent acquisition technologies available today. Think of them as a curriculum of introductory courses in everything from chatbots and artificial intelligence to programmatic ad buying and pay for performance recruitment advertising.
