HR Open Source
HR Open Source
HR Open Source is a knowledge sharing community bringing open source learning approaches to the global field of HR and recruiting.
Our intention is to transform the field of HR to become more impactful by democratizing access to progressive and innovative practices. Simply put, to make it easier for practitioners to access the peers, knowledge, and resources they need to thrive. At zero cost to them.
We achieve this through practitioner-contributed case studies breaking down how to execute and measure specific talent initiatives, high-value no-cost resources and templates, a global community of practitioners committed to openness and collaboration, and events.
Our long term aim is to develop a global peer network, and knowledge bank of case studies and resources, that will enable practitioners build better organizations and elevate the field together.
Every voice matters. Share yours.
