The leaders of HR technology run in a tightly knit circle, and together, they are constantly shaping the way technology impacts everyday HR practitioners. The following four leaders in HR technology dominate the social sphere through their active blogs, columns, and talkshows, and they all guide and influence the ways we think about technology in HR.
1. Bill Kutik
Bill Kutik is a veteran in the HR-technology sector with almost 30 years of experience. Kutik is currently the host and managing editor of Firing Line with Bill Kutik, host of the Bill Kutik Radio Show, and the tech columnist for Human Resource Executive magazine.
Kutik’s social media influence in HR technology comes from his experience in reaching audiences through all forms of media outlets, including, print, radio, video, and digital.
Fun fact about Kutik: He scored a 799 out of 800 on the English section of the SATs. Kutik, we’re curious which one you got wrong, too.

4. Bryon Abramowitz
Bryon Abramowitz, cloud solutions director at PwC, boasts 18 years of experience as an HR technology consultant who has helped companies implement technology solutions in their recruitment process. Abramowitz’s social influence comes from his blog, The HR Technologist, where he discusses pressing topics in HR technology. Although RIVS doesn’t play favorites, Abramowitz is a Chicago native — so we think that makes him pretty cool.
These social influencers in HR technology serve as resources from which organizations and HR departments can learn quite a lot. Be sure to follow these thought leaders going forward — you definitely won’t regret it.
