We know you may have some questions about #HROS, or simply want to learn more about this initiative. We've put together answers to some of the most common questions about #HROS below.
Where is #HROS going?
The long term goal of #HROS is to increase collaboration and sharing in HR and Recruiting; creating a knowledge bank of case studies, resources, and best practices across a wide range of representative industries and company sizes. By collaborating, sharing, and opening up our playbooks for success a bit more we have a real opportunity to accelerate learning, make bigger impacts in our organizations, and transform the HR and talent acquisition space together.
What does an #HROS case study look like?
#HROS case studies are designed to pull back the curtain and showcase the HR or recruiting work of an employer and their talent organization to help inform, educate, and inspire other peers with actionable examples they can use in their own organizations.
Each #HROS case study consists of the following components:
Who You Are and what your hiring processes look like.
The Problem that your HR initiative is trying to solve.
How You Did It and what others can learn from your experience.
How You Measured It through reporting, analytics and big data.
What You Got Wrong, including lessons learned and what you’d change if you could do it all over again.
What HR Can Learn and key takeaways they can implement today.
My peers are interested in contributing, but their companies don't support sharing case studies. Can they got involved personally?
Absolutely! Individuals can contribute by sharing resources they find educational and inspirational to their work on the #HROS hashtag, and promote HROS.co and case studies.
We’ll also be looking for passionate individuals who are willing to volunteer their time to help drive HROS forward (Volunteer Supporters). Volunteers can support HROS by contributing to a certain aspect of the initiative; depending on their areas of interest, availability and commitment level. To volunteer, they can sign up here.
We are continuing to spread the word about #HROS and encouraging employers and their talent organizations to get involved. We’re also beginning to speak with new member organizations to develop future case studies, so will be rolling out new case studies in the coming weeks.
This is a collective initiative. This is *our* initiative.
Some may call it a radical idea. Those perspectives are still caught up in the trenches of the war for talent. Open Source HR is a different view. A view that there is room for both competition and collaboration. A view that our responsibilities go deeper than ourselves and our companies, but to our communities. A view that if we all open our playbooks a bit more, collaborate, and share - that we can truly transform learning, innovation, and capabilities in our field. That makes us all better, and allows us to make bigger impacts in our organizations.
Thanks again for your passion and interest in contributing to #HROS! We are grateful you will be joining this movement with us, and excited to see where we take this together.
