Here's some HR tech vendors making headlines.

ERIN, a provider of employee referral technology, today announced that the company was named a winner of the 2024 HR Tech Awards by leading analyst firm Lighthouse Research & Advisory.

The company was recognized as a "Best Innovative or Emerging Tech Solution" in the Talent Acquisition category based on the problems the platform solves in the market, customer satisfaction, and an overall evaluation of the company.


Symphony Talent, a global leader in recruitment marketing technology and employer brand services, has been named a Strategic Challenger on the 2024 Fosway 9-Grid™ for Talent Acquisition for the third consecutive year, demonstrating Symphony Talent's consistent dedication to providing cutting-edge solutions that drive game-changing results for talent acquisition teams worldwide.

"From rapidly evolving technologies to shifting candidate expectations, the TA industry faces many challenges," says Sven Elbert, Head of Analyst Services at Fosway Group. "A full-funnel talent acquisition solution — that seamlessly aligns employer branding, technology and data analytics to the candidate journey — is essential to address these complexities. Symphony Talent provides a robust framework for meeting the diverse needs of complex, global enterprise-scale clients."


Acclaimed actor & author Alan Cumming, currently the host of the global cultural phenomenon The Traitors, is joining PowerToFly's Pride: Championing LGBTQIA+ Leaders & Allies summit for an exclusive fireside chat about his career, his advocacy and the current state of LGBTQIA+ representation in art and media. As dozens of states enact anti-LGBTQIA+ legislation and LGBTQIA+ representation in media has fallen, Cumming and PowerToFly are eager to inspire the next generation of queer entrepreneurs, content creators and activists to take action.

Cumming joins a diverse lineup of speakers hosting workshops covering such topics as "Working Remote While Trans", "Authentic Storytelling for Allyship" and "Navigating Identity in a Corporate Setting".


Borderless AI, the world's first AI-powered HR platform, has partnered with Cohere, a leader in providing large language model (LLMs) solutions to enterprises, to provide tailored AI agents for the HR category. At a time when investors are grappling with the high prices of LLMs, Borderless AI and Cohere are deploying AI to industries with existing business models and customer bases, where the need for AI is clear.

Borderless AI and Cohere are solving this problem in several ways with today's announcement:

  • Borderless AI has announced they are launching an AI agent for Canadian employment agreements – Startups across Canada can access Borderless AI and create compliance agreements for their teams – an industry-first
  • AI-powered Real-Time-Payments and Treasury functions - unlike Deel and, Borderless AI does not require salary deposits – a major improvement on the customer experience; and one that puts more money in the hands of customers
  • Proprietary HR Knowledge Base - powered by Cohere's RAG technology. HR professionals across Canada can now get domain-specific knowledge about HR best practices and employment law through Borderless AI's proprietary AI agent.

AI is disrupting sectors like HR, legal, customer service, payments, and retail with the introduction of AI Agents. Leading companies like Harvey for legal and Sierra for customer service are putting a spotlight on the critical need for AI agents across verticals. With the recent launch of Borderless AI, the company is taking the same verticalized approach to the HR industry to solve complex challenges that HR teams face daily when scaling global teams.
