Announcing HR Tech Central

Posted by Mark Bennett on April 1, 2009

The TalentedApps team is excited to be participating in and announcing the beginning of:


HR Tech Central


This is a community of people who have come together to help find and organize the best content from blogs, news sources and other web sites all around the intersection of technology and human resources. The goal is to create a place where it’s easy to find current and highly relevant content and perhaps to stimulate new connections.318805351_40cf33160f_m Already, some standout bloggers such as Josh Bersin, Steve Boese, and Michael Specht are participating. This is an excellent way for you to get a wide diversity of high quality content in one place as well as discover new sources. You can find the badge that links to HR Tech Central and a keyword widget on the right sidebar of our blog.


You can get a sense of the power of the site by visiting the HR Tech Central site and clicking a keyword on the left.  For example, if you choose Productivity, you find:


=> The most recent posts, announcements and web pages on the top of the page that relate to Productivity.

=> Below that, the best (according to social signals across the network) content, such as:

=> The keywords on the left are ordered according to their relationship to the current term.  So you can see that

are all considered relevant to “productivity”. 

These will grow much richer over time as more people join the community and the content base grows.

You can find Featured participants listed on the right hand side of each page. When you choose one of them such as Michael Specht, you will see the keywords are now based on what Michael discusses more than most. You can see that he talks about: HR Management, Recruitment, and Engagement. It’s interesting to look at some of the other Featured bloggers and see what concepts, tools, etc. they talk about the most.

All of this technology comes from Tony Karrer. If you have ideas on how to improve the site or want to do something similar, Tony would like to hear about it.


Here’s a sample of the blogs that are participating:
