Founded in 2012 SocialHRCamp started as an experiment that aimed to accelerate social media and emerging HR technology adoption in the Human Resources industry. We already know that the value technology offers HR is infinite yet the industry lags behind in adoption. SocialHRCamp aims to solve this problem by bringing together HR and Recruitment practitioners, emerging software companies and industry thought-leaders to learn “how to” use social media and emerging HR technology in the workplace.
The concept of SocialHRCamp is to deliver a highly experiential and hands-on learning platform so attendees can actually implement ideas, strategies and tactics in their workplaces immediately. To date, in-person Camps have been run in Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Kitchener-Waterloo, Toronto, Montreal, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Omaha and Boston, and a handful of virtual SocialHRCamps.
The platform will continue to evolve as it strives to push the HR Community towards fully adopting social technology. Disruptive you might say? Absolutely. Ambitious? Of course. Is this approach the right one? Well, if people are not pushed outside of their comfort zone, how will they change?
