HR Open Source case studies prepare you for the future of work by taking you behind the headlines to provide a window into the real work that goes into successful HR and recruiting initiatives - how they pitch and championed support, how they executed, what they got wrong (every good win has an equally good failure story), metrics and ROI, and technologies used. Our case studies are written by practitioners for practitioners, and are designed to stop talking about theory and showcase the organizations getting HR and recruiting right in practice.
