Some of Boston’s brightest HR and recruiting experts, including Chris McMahon from Turbonomic, Allison Churilla from Salsify, Chrissy Costello from Buildium, and Keith Cline from Desero & VentureFizz, will discuss how companies can attract the best talent and build teams that produce high-quality work while working well together.
