That’s a tall order for a cool unconference called HRevolution. Hanging out in Chicago with all kinds of nifty, neat, amazing people was an awful lot of fun. This was a place people wanted to be. Me too. I learned some things.
I was happy that I brought my camera.
I spent a session with Jennifer McClure and Lisa Rosendahl facilitating the topic Can HR be trusted? It was an interesting and at times, uncomfortable topic. Everyone in HR wants to be trusted. We are good people. We like to think we are. Most valuable for me was listening to some of my colleagues share stories and feedback about how people have been burned; people who have divulged information; people who are afraid to share specifics about illnesses, people who would go anywhere but HR. I walked away with a healthy reminder that we are stewards of sensitive and delicate information. We need to be transparent in our dealings but airtight with the sources.
