Why You Should Attend the “disruptHR Colombo” May Event


disruptHR Colombo is back in May. Read what happened in our last editions in December & March.

What is disruptHR?

Main goal of the event is to informing and empowering HR specialists.

The global HR sector is exploding. Dramatic changes, driven by cutting edge technology and innovation are transforming the way HR works and recruitment happens.

The Sri Lankan recruitment and people management market is also changing and there is a lot to learn from international experiences. disruptHR will feature speakers to share their experiences and answer questions, and provide an opportunity to network and build a sophisticated community of HR professionals in Sri Lanka.

If you’re an HR professional, a CEO, a technologist, a community leader – and you’ve got something to say about talent, culture or technology – Disrupt is the place.

Why should I attend?

Whether you are new to the HR profession or a seasoned professional, we are in a time when Human Resources… a.k.a. HR …is becoming more and more involved in being a game changer in today’s business world. We are at a crossroads, so to speak, where the tried and true methods of the past aren’t working as well anymore when it comes to recruiting, employee relations and retention but so many other methods are still in the “test and see if it works” period for the future. This is most important to those companies that don’t have an established HR department internally.

So, what better way to find out if some of these “test and see if it works” methods are really working than to listen to others in the field that have already tried it! Or, maybe your company is struggling to find new ideas but what others in your same industry are doing doesn’t apply or won’t work for you. Many times, we shut off from new ideas because we assume that – on the surface – they won’t work. The speakers at DisruptHR not only share ideas but action steps for you to try right away…or, better yet, make spark an idea in your head for something new to try!
