#HRUSanDiego – Sourcing & Technologies

GlobalHRU & California Staffing Professionals


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.


The event in San Diago will be focused on the Sourcing & Technology and its influence of changing business models, processes, structures, perspectives. Today different technologies in recruitment businesses allow recruitment organizations to respond rapidly to changes in an internal and external environment and be more effective. 

Let’s discuss above and more at #HRUSanDiego – Sourcing and Technology on 3rd of May, 2017.
