Want to stay connected with the HR tech community? Meet HR reps from other local tech companies? Join others for coffee in a smaller setting to share hot topics? Then join a Special Interest Group (SIG), free to all members of the HR Tech Group!
Typically SIGs meet about every 4-6 weeks. They each have 2 or 3 volunteers who coordinate the location, time and topic, and invite others to attend. All SIG meetings are posted on our events calendar, or please reach out to one of the SIG Leaders and ask to be added to the distribution list. Join one of the following groups or all of them:
HR Generalist SIG
Provide professional development and mentorship to new and intermediate HR practitioners on a variety of topics.
Leaders: Cheryl Gifford (Hootsuite) Natania Mathany (AThinkingApe) and Jill Charlton (Tasktop)
For HR practitioners who are recruiters or who have Recruitment as part of their responsibilities. This SIG also invites some non-tech companies who have dedicated Recruiters as part of their team - making for a broader discussion around recruitment topics. Non-tech companies can pay $150 annually to be included in this SIG.
Leaders: Saleema Chaudhry (PayByPhone) and Shane Moore (Stemcell)
Emerging Practitioners SIG
For new HR practitioners (0 to 3 years), either to the HR field or to the tech industry. This SIG enables participants to network with other newcomers and is a great professional development opportunity. This group will focus on the fundamentals of a variety of HR topics.
Leaders: Kaitlin Graves (PageFreezer) and Rachel Kramer (ACL)
The SIG rep on the HR Tech Group Steering Committee is Lindsay Jongbloed. For general info, to provide feedback or suggestions, or for starting up a new SIG, please contact her at email@example.com.
