GMAC and Hogan were honored with this distinction on Monday, October 7, 2013, at the 16th Annual HR Technology Conference & Expo’s Top HR Products of 2013 Awards Luncheon at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas.
“This is a terrific honor and wonderful acknowledgement from such a leading authority as Human Resource Executive,” said Andrew Martelli, GMAC vice president, new product development. “In developing Reflect, GMAC and Hogan set out to create something not only grounded in science but also accessible with or without a facilitator, clearly presented in the language of business and directed at professionals or students looking to strengthen their soft skills to further their educational or professional aspirations.”
The Top HR Products of 2013 contest aims to acknowledge the best and most innovative human resources products of the year.
