Community Over Everything

We’re living in the golden age of community in HR and recruiting. Gone are the days when we believed in a zero-sum game of recruiting and kept our practices locked away with a black box mentality. The rise of open-source practices is propelling the field forward at an accelerating pace. Community will be the foundation of this new world of work we’re building - together.
In this interactive keynote, Amplify Founder, Lars Schmidt, will share lessons, stories and failures from over twenty years of community building from offline to online spanning the Entertainment Human Resources Group (EHRN), HR Open Source and the Amplify Accelerator communities.
