Introducing the Sponsors for SocialHRCamp Vancouver 2016

Introducing the Sponsors for SocialHRCamp Vancouver 2016

We’re getting closer and closer to our 15th SocialHRCamp in the city where it all began, “Silicon Valley North”. Version 1 of the agenda was published last week (check it out here) and our speakers are locked down (will be introducing them next week). This post is about introducing the small but mighty group of first-time sponsors. We tend to use “first time” a lot, which we like by the…

Many of you close to the HR Technology scene have likely heard of WorkTango. If you haven’t you need to check them out NOW!…

Aaaaannnd We Are Back… SocialHRCamp Toronto in May 2016

Aaaaannnd We Are Back… SocialHRCamp Toronto in May 2016

It has been awhile since our last SocialHRCamp, which was on June 18, 2015 in Chicago. Not much has really changed since then from a social media and technology adoption perspective within the HR industry. Well, that’s not really true because adoption continues its upward trend, the HR technology continues to grow and we have seen a slight shift in core focus within HR. If you’re wondering what this shift…

From Vancouver to Omaha, Nebraska — It’s “Go Time”

From Vancouver to Omaha, Nebraska — It’s “Go Time”

It’s been a crazy start to the year for SocialHRCamp. This is technically our 4th year (wow time flies), and it seems things are just starting to heat up. We kicked off the year by hosting our 3rd Camp in beautiful Vancouver at Hootsuite, which absolutely rocked! Now we turn our attention to a completely different part of North America in Omaha, Nebraska. On May 15th we’ll be kicking it at…

Last But Not Least… Speaker Wave #6

Last But Not Least… Speaker Wave #6

We are just days away from the 10th SocialHRCamp in our existence, and of course it couldn’t be taking place in a better city, Vancouver. We have assembled another fantastic group of speakers that possess the degree of diversity and unique expertise that we strive to achieve with each Camp. Speaker wave #6 is about showcasing 2 Vancouver-based emerging HR technology platforms, Jostle and PaySavvy. Jostle is part of the…

Introducing Stress-Free Cloud-Based Payroll & Workforce Management Software

The 10th SocialHRCamp is taking place on January 31st at Hootsuite in Vancouver. We couldn’t be more excited about this event as we have so many interesting people attending, sponsoring, volunteering and speaking. One of the unique things about SocialHRCamp is that each event takes on a different flavour. The 3rd Camp in Vancouver will be defined as “HR Tech Start-Up,” with a diverse sponsorship group of innovative tech companies…

SocialHRCamp Partners Again With Big Rock Labs & Their Reach Networking App

SocialHRCamp Partners Again With Big Rock Labs & Their Reach Networking App

We introduced the Reach Networking App at SocialHRCamp Toronto in November 2014 (see “Take Networking to the Next Level with…“). We really like the app as it’s simple, easy to use and has a really clean user interface. Plus, we were intrigued by the product roadmap from Toronto-based Big Rock Labs, the creators of this tool. We’re excited that they’ve signed on for their second SocialHRCamp, in Vancouver this coming weekend…

Upcoming Vancouver Camp Brings a Start-Up Tech Flavour…

You likely know by now SocialHRCamp values diversity and community. Each Camp is different, and each aims to bring together the local HR Community to learn, experience and network. Each facet of each Camp fully represents this — agenda, speakers, volunteers, partners, venue and sponsors. SocialHRCamp Vancouver 2015 is literally just around the corner, and timing could not be better to formally announce the Camp sponsors. When we looked at this group,…

Take Networking to the Next Level with…

One of the cool things about SocialHRCamp is it’s… well… a social event. There are lengthy breaks built into the schedule that are aimed to give attendees opportunities to connect, network and socialize. 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…

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. We still have a long way to go but I am personally encouraged by what I am seeing in the industry. One…
