#CMGRHangout presents: Community within HR (Preview)

February 4, 2016 — by Brew1

HR is full of community. If you think about it the workplace could be looked at as a community, and there’s quite a bond between HR professionals who learn from each other both in person and online.

Join us for this week’s #CMGRHangout panel on Friday, February 5th at 2pm EST/11am PST to discuss the types of communities surrounding HR.

Jonathan Brewer will be hosting the hangout with Maren HoganJessica Miller-Merrell and Rayanne Thorn on panel. Christin Kardos and Carrie Keenan will be moderating the Twitter chat using #CMGRHangout.

Discussion Questions

  1. What does community mean when related to HR?
  2. Could the workplace be looked at as one large or several communities and why?
  3. What does the HR community look like? Is there someone managing it?
  4. How are HR communities connected online?
  5. What’s a talent community and how are they being used?
  6. What types of challenges are there in managing a talent community?
  7. Can you share a story of a time when the HR community has come together to accomplish something amazing?
  8. What tips do you have for someone looking to manage an HR community?
