Think you have an awesome new tech solution?

HR leaders looking to explore their options among the rapidly growing HR-tech marketplace–which has grown even more crowded in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic–often turn to industry-leading efforts like HRE’s Top Products contest and the HR Tech Conference’s Awesome New Products awards to sort out the most viable tools for their organizations. This year, the two initiatives are merging to create one seamless, streamlined experience that will honor the best of the best of new HR-tech solutions. It’s becoming increasingly clear that HR tech will play a vital role in helping leaders meet the needs of their disrupted workforces, so now more than ever, it’s important to spotlight the innovative products helping fuel HR success.

To be eligible for the joint honor, tools must have been developed within the last year and be generally available by September 2020. Submissions will be judged on the solutions’ innovation in the HR-tech space, with particular attention to how the tools are breaking new ground.

Submit your nomination here.

Solution providers can submit their applications through the HR Tech Conference website, along with a non-refundable entry fee of $99. A panel of experts assembled by HRE and conference organizers will select up to 40 leading entries to provide live demonstrations for the judges; from there, they will narrow the submissions to up to 20 winners, which will be designated “Top HR Products of the Year/Awesome New Technologies for HR.” The solutions will be profiled in HRE this fall, on and highlighted across our social-media platforms.

Conference organizers also will showcase the top-rated products at the event, Oct. 13-16 in Las Vegas. Providers will be invited to perform live demonstrations of their solutions at a special session that is expected to draw hundreds of HR and tech leaders, including potential buyers, and they will also be included in promotional materials for the event.

The deadline for submissions is May 31. Providers that move on to the demonstration phase of the judging process will be notified on or about June 30.
