Mark Your Calendars! 14 HR and Recruiting Events to Attend in 2016


Welcome to mid-January!

This is the sweet spot—that period of time where it’s far enough into the year that your holiday-vacation-what-day-is-it-again mode has worn off and you’ve swiftly transitioned back into the swing of things at work—but it’s also early enough into the year that you’re still settling on your annual goals and plans to make 2016 the best year yet. Right? Right!

So, as you map out your journey for the next 12 months and make those critical decisions on what to do and what not to do in order to soar your team and company to new heights, make sure that you take a step back for a moment and think about you. What do we mean here? It’s important that as you plan for your company’s triumphs, you also plan for yours. You need to be strategic and proactive about advancing your skills and continuing to grow and develop as an HR professional. This should be an ongoing pursuit. So, we implore you: make time for learning!

As a first step, expose yourself to a wide-array of perspectives and opinions in the HR space and become a more well-rounded thinker by following inspiring industry influencers on social media. This will enable you to easily stay on top of news and trends from the convenience of your own phone or laptop. (Hooray for learning on-the-go!).

Secondly, make the investment to attend a couple of in-person events (think: conferences, seminars, and the like) where you can gain incredible insights from influencers first-hand, all in a comprehensive and jam-packed educational setting. Not only will your brain switch the flip to turbo-drive learning mode, but you will also reap the additional benefit of networking with those who do what you do, which can help you make the right connections, leading to possible collaborations and further opportunities for skill development down the road.
