HR conferences are a fantastic way to learn what’s new in the industry. Luckily, many HR and recruiting organizations have pivoted to hosting online events this fall.
Virtual conferences offer many of the same educational and networking benefits as in-person events — but from the comfort of your own home office.
We created this roundup of seven virtual events worth checking out.
#HRTX Virtual, Sept. 9-10, 2020 — Hosted by RecruitingDaily, #HRTX Virtual is a free two-day virtual training event that flips the expected conference model on its head. The event includes sponsored traditional sessions, but #HRTX primarily consists of training sessions hosted by experienced recruiters. These super-recruiters will be requisitioning candidates in real-time — and you have a front-row seat. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from the best!
Resources for Humans Virtual Conference, Sept. 16, 2020 — The Resources for Humans Virtual Conference highlights the “human” in human resources. The event offers sessions in three tracks: Perform, Engage and Grow. Sessions for each track are broadcast simultaneously, but don’t worry — registrants will also receive access to recordings. The day-long event features fun breaks for a puppy cam and culminates with a conversation with Daily Show host Trevor Noah.

HR Technology Conference, Oct. 27-30, 2020 — Hosted by Human Resource Executive, this four-day conference features eight keynote sessions from heavy-hitters such as Josh Bersin. Whether you’re looking to optimize your current tools or invest in new ones, the HR Technology Conference has you covered.

The future of work is here, and the folks at Human Resource Executive want to show you how to use technology to support meaningful change.
We’ve experienced months of prolonged disruption, and there’s no sign the pace of change is slackening. Virtual conferences help you stay up to date in a constantly changing world, and networking opportunities allow you to forge connections that propel you forward. And most of these events are pre-approved through SHRM and HRCI so you can collect recertification credits along the way.
There will always be new best practices and technologies on the horizon. Stay ahead of change and put these virtual events on your calendar today.
