HR Leaders Summit Recap

Posted on 23 Nov 2016 by Rick Seymour

Last week Xref had a fantastic showing at the HR Leaders Summit and what an event it turned out to be! Graced with a wonderful turnout, the Summit was attended by many HR directors who were keen to get a taste of the latest and greatest HR technologies available.

Adding to the enthusiasm from our North American team, was both Xref Co-founders Tim Griffiths and Lee-Martin Seymour, as well as Laura Bolton, one of our Customer Success Managers whom had flown over from Australia to be part of the action.

The event was full of companies of all industries and sizes, with a shared appetite for learning. The Xref branded coffee cups, napkins and water bottles made for some great introductions to our brand and conversations surrounding our platform. A definite highlight was the numerous keynote speakers who shared a wealth of knowledge on not only recruitment but all functions of Human Resources.

The Xref Challenge was a big hit with all the attendees and especially with Aman Randhawa from Canadian Tire, who was the eventual champion. She walked away with a $500 Best Buy gift card and a 1 month free trial of Xref.

It was particularly amazing to witness the Xref Challenge in action as the general consensus was that many attendees thought the way they were presently conducting thorough reference checks was effective and efficient. After our challenge, they quickly found out that their traditional manual process was both extremely time consuming and prone to inconsistencies, which have the potential to harm their business from governance and fraud.

The HR Leaders Summit was a fantastic event that was beneficial for both attendees and sponsors and we will be one of the first companies to register again next year.
