DisruptHR

I think it’s funny when HR people are irreverent. Mostly because we have to be so buttoned up all the time, but also because it proves we are humans….who cuss….and get angry….and hate our jobs. Well, some of you may hate your job, I love mine.

DisruptHR offers HR and recruiting professionals a chance to be irreverent. Or reverent but in a out of the box thinking kind of way. I, and my cohort James Kinney, run the Los Angeles chapter of DisruptHR and will be hosting our second event on Wednesday, April 12th.

#DisruptHR Los Angeles is happening 4/12. Find out more at http://bit.ly/disrupthrla Click To Tweet

The event will happen at the beautiful Haworth showroom in Downtown Los Angeles. Globally, Haworth improves workplaces with award-winning furniture, interior architecture and technology solutions to help customers achieve business goals and transform culture, as well as support collaboration and innovation. Research and design drive a deep understanding of agile workplace needs and are at the center of the company’s strategy. Haworth is committed to protecting and restoring the environment, creating economic value as well as supporting and strengthening its communities. Founded in 1948, Haworth remains family-owned and privately-held, serving markets in more than 120 countries through a global network of 650 dealers and over 6,000 employees.

Haworth is our main sponsor and we are excited to partner with them for this event.

Other companies partnering with us to make this happen include ADP, Miller Farm Media, United Agencies Insurance and Ceridian.

We couldn’t make it happen without our partners and we appreciate their support.

Speaker lineupDisruptHR wouldn’t be what it is without an amazing speaker lineup. We have a few repeat offenders in our lineup this time round, Alan Fluhrer, Scott Hamilton and Candice Gottlieb-Clark have all presented before. We also have a few first timers who I’m really excited to hear.

DisruptHR has really taken off over the last couple of years and is now in 75 cities around the globe. Attendees really love the format, 5 minutes, 20 slides that auto advance every 15 seconds and a topic that makes people think. Bite sized pieces of information that are packed with a punch.

If you haven’t attended a Disrupt event, you should add it to your to do list. If you are in the Los Angeles area, we would love to have your join ours. You can get your tickets here!

I would love to see you on the 12th. If you make it, be sure to come up and introduce yourself.
