    HR Happy Hour - Live from Chicago

    Day 2 of the HR Technology Conference was full of interesting sessions, meetings with vendors, and a fair bit of meeting and getting to know some old and new friends.

    I have lots of ideas and comments about the state of HR Technology in general, and about some specific technologies in particular.  But before I start in on that, I want to talk about the HR Happy Hour show we broadcast live from Chicago.

    Simply, this was the best HR Happy Hour show yet. Not only because of the fantastic insights from Mark Stelzner, Jason Seiden, Laurie Ruettimann, and Lance Haun, but because of the fantastic and inspiring presence of the many friends and gifted HR and HR Technology professionals that wanted to participate and be a part of the show.

    We thought we were going to be putting on a little show with a three or four of us in a small hotel room and we ended up having to scramble to find a big enough conference room to hold everyone.  Many, many thanks to Jason Seiden for organizing the location and keeping cool the entire time.

    The show covered a wide range of topics, from making HR more strategic, to the adoption (or lack thereof) of technology in HR, and even a bit about generational differences in the workplace.

    But more important than any specific topic that was discussed was the vibe, the feeling of connection and sharing the absolutely surrounded the room and the show.  It was really remarakable to have such a diverse, talented, and passionate group of professionals in one room, taking time out of the conference festivities to participate in the show.

    For that I am truly thankful, and very much humbled.

    Take a listen to the show, and I hope you feel the energy and excitement that was in the room.

    Hi, listen, I try to read your posts every time I can and I found this pretty new to me, so I did my homework and searched for "HR Technology", I found a site and I'd like to know what HCM stands for? The article was speaking of generic viagra conference, so I'm not sure if that has something to do with it or if I just took it totally out of context!

    The idea behind this article is excellent, and for me the first item ("Create your own damn content!") is the real gem here: most of the people spend their entire lives only consuming what is created by others, and creating nothing themselves--or never sharing what they create, which is better than not creating at all, though not the best they could do.
