"As an attendee who participates in lots of virtual events, the HR Tech Roundtable was the smoothest attendee experience I’ve had, by miles! It allowed attendees to truly immerse themselves in the event. I’d highly recommend that other organizations who are pivoting in-person events to virtual events follow a similar format."

    • Case Study: Using Conversational AI to Create Hyper-Personalized Experiences that Drive Transformational Results
      • Speaker: Jacob Kramer, Vice President of Talent Acquisition, U.S. XPress | Josh Zywien, Chief Marketing Officer, Paradox
      • Abstract: Imagine your business is a major player in a hyper-competitive industry, where almost everyone is fighting over a relatively small, shrinking candidate market and those candidates are almost constantly being recruited. U.S. Xpress is in this business, and they knew their recruiting strategy would need an innovative overhaul to overcome these daunting challenges.

        So, U.S. Xpress turned to AI — implementing conversational assistive intelligence to deliver recommended positions based on candidate details, capture and screen candidates in real-time to fast-track applications and provide answers to questions as soon as they are asked. But they also took the experience further by embarking on a first-of-its-kind feature that leverages hyper-personalization to instantly present a diverse group of AI assistant personas to applying drivers. These personalized experiences, coupled with a simplified candidate journey, presented transformational results for those that applied and also removed the immense burden from the recruiting process.
