The HRD Connect community has expanded organically over the years, meeting both face-to-face and in virtual environments. In the past few years, activity has flourished on our online platforms and our people leader community now boasts over 500,000 annual users.
As hybrid and remote working styles bloom, we have further enhanced this approach with the launch of the HRD Collective series. This series features Digital Incubators, Lightning Talks, debates and discussions on the latest hot topics in the HR sector. Our purpose is to engage every member of our community in shaping a future of empathetic, people-oriented leadership.
HRD Connect was launched in 2017 as a headline event for HR professionals. The platform provided a nurturing space for senior industry leaders to share and exchange knowledge, collaborate on creating solutions and connect over real concerns and challenges. Together we’ve gone through market disruptions, technological advancements, in-person and virtual gatherings. We have grown, adapted, and supported each other along the way.
