About #HRU

The HR Gazette is proudly supporting HRU events in 2017. HR Unconferences are designed to bring good value to both participants and partners by:

  • assuring high level, progressive and future-oriented content for attendees
  • and relevant people at the right time for sponsors.

Aki and the #HRU team believes that the real value happens outside the keynote sessions, exhibitions and formal discussions. That’s why they created the Unconference style HR events where everyone can influence the content and have the own voice for shaping the future of HR.'
