T-2 Sleeps to SocialHRCamp Vancouver 2016

We are just days away from SocialHRCamp Vancouver 2016, the 15th SocialHRCamp since it started in mid-2012. Not only are we sold out (125 attendees) we have an awesome group of speakers and sponsors who will be rocking it out at the BC Tech Association on Saturday, November 26th. One of the cool things about SocialHRCamp is its commitment to diversity. Diversity in sponsors, speakers, venues, attendees and session topics….

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…

FINALLY… Version 1 Agenda for SocialHRCamp Vancouver 2016 is Live!

We know we know… it took some time to get version 1 of the agenda published for SocialHRCamp Vancouver 2016 (click on the “Agenda” button). For those of you who know how we curate the agenda, it’s a work of art to say the least. We ask all attendees a set of short questions during the registration process for a specific reason. No it’s not to bombard and spam them all…

And just like that, as fast as a blink of an eye the 10th SocialHRCamp in the city where it all started, happened. It was an extraordinary experience for several reasons – the venue at Hootsuite‘s HQ1. Hands down it was the best venue SocialHRCamp has taken place in. Not only the physical space but the Hootsuite employees that volunteered to help make it a raving success. The speakers were awesome,…

The Interesting Story of Hootsuite Growing Up in a Social Media World

The Interesting Story of Hootsuite Growing Up in a Social Media World

We talk regularly about social media being a significant business platform, and that it needs to be fully embedded in everything we do… EVERYTHING! From recruiting to employee engagement to performance, everything is inherently social. Why? Because people are social, and we spend most of our time being social. Now imagine for a second that your core business is social media, so not only do you have to build awesome products…

The 10th Camp came and went in a blur (as they usually do) this past weekend at Hootsuite in Vancouver. Approximately 110 HR/Recruitment pros participated and I think it’s safe to say that the general consensus was they found value in attending and enjoyed themselves. We were able to introduce a couple of awesome emerging HR tech platforms (Jostle, WIRL and Riipen), understand how the Ironman connects to HR technology adoption,…

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

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…

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,…
