While those in the HR space who are highly active on twitter may have heard about (or even attended) the HRevolution conference last weekend in Louisville, KY, there are probably countless others who heard nothing about it. The conference was born out of a random tweet several months back and quickly morphed into an unconference which was delivered with less time to plan than most conferences. In all, approximately 50 HR professionals, bloggers, consultants, and vendors participated in the event which was coordinated, planned, and executed by Trish McFarlane, Steve Boese, Ben Eubanks, and Crystal Peterson
Rather than tell you all about it, I wanted to celebrate, discuss, and learn from others who participated. To that end, please check out the following posts from others:
- HREvolution in Trish McFarlane’s words here
- Notes and Observations from Steve Boese
- Summary of the event from Crystal Peterson
- Video explanation of HRevolution from Ben Eubanks
- Summary of the event from Lance Haun – Your HR Guy
Lastly, Steve Boese and I will be hosting a special HR_Tech chat on Wednesday, November 11th at 1:00 PM EDT devoted to learnings from the HRevolution unconference. Please join us for the discussion. If you haven’t ever participated in one of our HR Tech chats, Lois Melbourne of Aquire has a terrific blog post explaining the basics and how you can participate.
I’m looking forward to everyone’s comments and thoughts on Wednesday.
