#HRUHelsinki 2017 – Data-Driven HR & Proactive Hiring


HR Unconferences are a global series of events where the emphasis is on conversation, cross-level communication and free exchange of ideas and experiences. Aimed at HR practitioners, recruiters, and corporate executives the events focus on the latest innovations and technologies used in HR. These events are organised in more than 50 countries across the world and attended by over 6 000 people globally. No keynote speakers, no presenter looking down on you from a big stage and no similar standards of the events. Instead, we provide free, flexible, informal environment for the HR & Recruitment folks in the market to discuss their challenges and find real practical solutions.

This year the event in Helsinki will be two days: 

– Thursday 4th of May will be focused on the Data-Driven HR… 

and its influence of changing business models, processes, structures, perspectives. Today data-driven approach in business refers to distinct qualities that allow organizations to respond rapidly to changes in an internal and external environment. This often means knowledge over intuition and different process and tools to collect and assess relevant information that is helping us to do better decisions faster.

– Friday 5th of May will be dedicated to Proactive Hiring…

and how we can move from reactive hiring models to modern recruitment from workforce planning to recruitment lead nurturing and sourcing.

Let’s discuss above and more at #HRUHelsinki – Data-Driven HR and Proactive Hiring on 4th and 5th of May, 2017. 

Join us for an opportunity to network with top level executives from the most forward thinking organizations in Finland and beyond, meet the best HR technology vendors and startups from around the world and enjoy the spirit of an unconference.
