Last Thursday the majority of the Willory team headed to The Flats (Downtown Cleveland) for the third installment of the incredibly popular DisruptHRCle. The evening was full of drinks, disruption, and some daring word choices.
You see, at DisruptHRCle a bunch of HR pros get together and rip the current state of HR apart. It’s a no-holds barred session full of optimism for change and pessimism for what people experience right now. I should have known that it was going to be unlike any other HR event I’ve ever attended by not only the titles of the presentations, but by the joke Lauren Rudman shared to get the evening started.
Kris Dunn of Fistful of Talent and HR Capitalist kicked off the evening with F bombs, making fun of Cleveland sports, lies, and using assessments. He really opened up the crowd and allowed us to take the rest of the night to look at HR in a whole new perspective.
I was incredibly surprised about how many of the presentations dealt with technology. Prior to the event I thought the tech and social media presentations would cast a negative light on two subjects I love, however, I was very quickly proven wrong. As opposed to writing down everything I saw during the event, I’d rather share what people were saying on social media. This is just a very small snippet of the conversation. To read what everyone was saying, head on over to Twitter and search for #DisruptHRcle. It’s a wealth of pictures and quotes.
