On March 9, #HRUSeattle delved into the changing world of HR and Recruitment technologies and how they are being adopted by the workforce.
The event brought together a group of around 45 HR pros who were looking to engage and discuss topics related to sourcing, recruiting, and staffing.
People may not realize that when HR professionals gather, a good time is (generally) had by all. The recent #HRUSeattle was no exception. Maybe that’s because the U in #HRU stands for “un-conference”?
The unconference format meant that dialogue was relaxed yet rich. The emphasis placed on conversation and free exchange of ideas meant the event did a great job in educating the local HR community about the latest innovations and technologies used in making HR easier.
Sessions were led by an impressive line-up of analysts, leaders and HR pros from such companies as CXC Global, AmazingHiring Global, Providence Health & Services, Providence Health & Services, Amazon, Lockheed Martin and Brightfield Strategies.
As an attendee, deciding which discussion was difficult, with an amazing list of presenters who covered:
