2017 InfluenceHR Award Winners Named for Creative Excellence in HCM Tech Marketing

Benefex Awarded Best in Show by Panel of Industry Experts

San Francisco, Oct. 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InfluenceHR — a disruptive, chaotic, and exclusive two-day event for human capital management marketers who want to stay on the bleeding edge of B2B marketing — announced winners of the 2017 InfluenceHR Awards. The InfluenceHR Awards recognize HCM brands and campaigns that play above the marketing status quo.

“InfluenceHR is proud to recognize the highest level of creative excellence in HCM tech marketing. We congratulate the 2017 InfluenceHR Award winners and commend them for breaking through creative barriers to produce extraordinary work,” said Mark Mitchell, partner in charge of sales and marketing for The Starr Conspiracy, which hosts InfluenceHR.

Judged by an independent panel of industry experts, these brands showcased work that proves they’re not just surviving in HCM tech marketing — but distinctly standing out. This year’s panel of judges consisted of Sarah-Beth Anders, LinkedIn; Rob Catalano, WorkTango; and Jack Skeels, AgencyAgile.
