Recruitment Automation Conference (RAC)

1697 people attended
Welcome to the Recruitment Automation Conference (RAC)!

The RAC brings the global recruitment community together to learn, grow, and connect. RAC is for recruiters, sourcers, executives, builders, and industry experts: the people that are driving the evolution of digital recruitment - and the people that want to learn more about it.

What's happening at the RAC?

  • Hear from top HR executives and some of the most prominent thought leaders in talent acquisition: including talent leaders from companies like Comcast, Johnson & Johnson, Uber, Intel, AT&T, Randstad, Siemens, Accenture, and more. They'll cover topics ranging from implementing new technologies to bias and diversity in tech-first hiring to the landscape of innovation in today's TA world. 

  • Watch case study sessions from technology solutions across the TA ecosystem and see how teams are actually implementing innovative tech solutions out in the wild.

  • Connect with the recruiting community! This is truly a virtual conference meant to be a real experience for everyone: see everything from a magician to a relaxation room to a happy hour mixology contest, and more fun surprises. If we are going to come together virtually, let's have some fun doing it!

    And keep checking back! We're adding more each day :)
