Laguna Niguel, California – (HRVendorNews) October 26, 2020 — Fuel50 is thrilled to announce that FuelMarketplace™ has been selected as a Top HR Products winner for 2020 by Human Resource Executive®. This contest spotlights the most innovative new solutions on the market that are helping business leaders meet the ever-evolving HR needs of their organizations.

Larry McAlister, CHRO of NetApp says “There is no going back to the way talent looks at how they experience work. My vision in working with Fuel50 is to enable through technology and leadership to have everyone feel they are doing their best work of their career at NetApp from their kitchen table.”

Here’s what the judges had to say about FuelMarketplace™

Why we like it: With straight line, up the organizational ladder types or career paths largely disappearing in the modern, leaner and flatter organization, employees need to have more creative and alternative methods of finding opportunities, developing skills, and visualizing their own career journeys. The Fuel Marketplace from Fuel50 brings together a set of capabilities that allow employees to leverage AI to be matched with opportunities and gigs and suggests ways in which they can navigate their career plans. With a modern, easy-to-use, and fun interface, employees can clearly visualize where they are on their journey and how they can best move forward to reach their goals.

This year around 110 submissions were received and narrowed down to the winning 16 solutions that illustrate the HR tech innovation on the horizon. The expert panel decided on the best of the best following a rigorous process of submission reviews followed by participating in deep-dive demos and reviewing again.

“Submissions were judged on their innovation in the HR tech space, with particular attention to how the tools are breaking new ground, how much value they add to the HR function, how intuitive they are for users and whether they deliver what they promise.”

New for 2020, the Top HR Products contest by Human Resource Executive® merges the two longstanding, most prestigious awards and recognitions in the HR technology industry: “Top HR Products of the Year,” selected by the editors of Human Resource Executive®, and the “Awesome New Technologies for HR,” recognized at the HR Technology Conference.
