CB Insights has recently gifted HR tech with its very own periodic table. The periodic table of HR tech covers 131 privately held HR tech companies, along with the most active HR tech investors and the top 10 exits since 2012.

Companies in the periodic table were chosen based on CB Insights data on total funding, recency of funding, quality of investors, and strength of Mosaic score, which is CB Insights’ predictive algorithm for measuring the health of companies using financial and non-financial signals.
