Something is happening in the field of HR 2.0 (the use of web 2.0 / social media in HR). After the last couple of years being one of a handful of bloggers talking about this, there are now signs that this is going mainstream.
Are we at an inflexion point?
For example, today is the start of the International Forum on Enterprise 2.0 in Milan. I’m not going to be able to go unfortunately, although I’d have loved to do so, particularly having spent a few months working there some years back. And I think what’s particularly noteworthy about this conference is that there’s a pre-conference workshop and then a full workshop stream focused on HR 2.0:
HR 2.0 track
Chairman Emanuele Scotti
And then next week, it’s the Enterprise 2.0 conference in Boston, which also includes a session on HR 2.0 and I’ll be blogging that live:
Session: Human Resources and Workforce Collaboration
Moderator - Oliver Marks, Blogger, Sovos Group, ZDNet
Of course, not all references to HR 2.0 have anything do do with what most people associate with 2.0 ie web 2.0 / social media. For example, this HR 2.0 conference with Jac Fitz-Enz that’s been running for the last couple of days has got nothing to do with HR 2.0 at all really! (and I’m not sure about this session at SHRM’s national conference either).
But I still think something’s stirring. What about you?
