It’s back again! disruptHR returns at HR Tech World London to showcase innovative start-ups who want to disrupt the status quo of HR.
Our esteemed judges (Marta Domańska, Máté Palicz, Peter Russell, Andrew Spence and yours truly) have narrowed the many entrants down to the top 5 who on Tuesday 21st at 11:30 will need to prove to the judges that they have what it takes to take on the status-quo of the HR tech industry. The winner takes away a £10,000 of sponsorship package for use at any of the HR Tech World shows in 2017. So who has made the cut?
In no particular order, except in how I submit them for posting, here are the individual narratives on the 5 finalists…
First disruptHR finalist blog - read on for my interview with co-founder Daniel Bodonyi on how FLOW aims to understand your employees culture fit from screening to engagement to churn.
Here’s the second interview with disruptHR finalist Andrew Marritt. Andrew shares with me how Workometry has developed over the last year and why he’s looking forward to attending HR Tech World in a couple of weeks time
The third interview features a fellow fearless female CEO and co-founder of Textio, Kieran Snyder.

As much as we’re all looking forward to HR Tech World in London, we all know (perhaps because yours truly is emceeing) the fizz, bang, pop will be at the disruptHR area. With such an assortment of businesses and concepts, we’re sure to be witness new ideas around the future of work. Coming from diverse backgrounds, disruptHR attendees will all be looking for something slightly different – maybe your needs and their services will be a match? You’ll only know if you swing by and get a flavour of what’s going on.

To acknowledge International Women’s Day, I also wanted to champion women’s entrepreneurship at the upcoming HR Tech World London event.
