Usually SocialHRCamp’s take place during the latter half of the year but we’re mixing things up a little bit. We’re getting right to…

SocialHRCamp Toronto on Social Media

Last Thursday, November 13th came and went in a flash. The 3rd annual SocialHRCamp Toronto happened and it rocked.

The action not only was buzzing at Achievers but also on social media, notably Instagram and Twitter. The official event hashtag was #SHRC14. We took the liberty…

The agenda is packed with so much great content, learning and opportunities to collaborate, it’s equally important to balance this off with opportunities to socialize. With the Toronto Camp in just a few days we have been…

YES… the HR/Recruitment Community IS Adopting Tech!

At the inaugural SocialHRCamp in Vancouver on May 16, 2012 (ancient history it seems) we had a grand total of 0 speakers who were practicing HR or Recruitment in their organizations. This was not a bad thing at all because at the time it was quite difficult to identify organizations who were doing interesting and creative things in HR from a social media and/or technology perspective. No, using an Applicant…

Employee Engagement Surveys Are So Passé 2013

It’s no secret that we are in the middle of an HR Technology revolution. Yes technology has been around for a long time but we have seen unprecedented growth and development of new platforms in terms of the value they can generate for business, along with user adoption.
