GlobalHRU is a platform for progressive HR leaders around the world to meet, talk and connect with like- minded professionals. The format is designed for individual interaction and high level of engagement, so the number of attendees is limited to 120, and tracks are more like lively discussions rather than keynote talks people hear in other industry events. GlobalHRU is followed by 50,000 people globally and runs more than 60 events every year attended by 6000 people.

GlobalHRU operates two event formats: #HRU – an event for HR practitioners and recruiters to share practical cases, discuss tools that they are using and trends they observe in the industry. The other format is HRTechTank, an event primarily for HR Technology startups and investors. The purpose of HRTechTank is to connect, educate and promote innovations in the HCM & recruitment software space. HRTechTank brings together HR thought leaders, early adopters and investors together to discover what is happening in the HR Tech space and to share their expertise with the most promising HR Tech companies.

#HRU’s vision is to be the biggest HR and recruitment community in the world. #HRU aims to organize an event in every 500,000+ habitant city in the world by 2020.
