The Future of Work Is Here… Are You Ready?

Whether it’s progressive company cultures, distributed virtual workforces, or experimental benefits packages, the workplace, especially in the startup world, is changing by the day. Leaders in every industry are using workplace innovation to attract and retain talent, engage their customers, and ultimately drive business.

Charleston’s business community is no different, from the surging tech scene to the booming manufacturing sector, business is great in the Lowcountry. But we can’t get comfortable. We need to always push forward. The time to embrace the future of work is now!

We’re excited to announce DisruptHR Charleston, presented by Catch Talent, Echovate, McLaughlin & Smoak, and Teamphoria, will be bringing new ideas, concepts, and visions to Charleston this Fall!

What is DisruptHR Charleston?

DisruptHR is a groundbreaking Human Resources and Talent Attraction movement built on the belief that people and workplaces are constantly evolving, so the ideas and methodologies we use to engage, energize, and inspire them should adapt and change too. Now an International event with groups from New York City to London, DisruptHR is progressive thought leadership event that will change the way you approach your people and talent forever.

On Wednesday, October 19 from 5:30 to 8:30 PM, we’ll gather at the American Theater for presentations by ten HR professionals who’ll share their disruptive ideas on how to move our collective thinking forward when it comes to the workplace.

DisruptHR takes the brilliance of TED Talks, adds a pinch of energy from Ignite/Pecha Kucha events, and finishes it with a dash of “talent” giving each speaker 5 minutes to blow your mind on topics relevant to the human experience and how we work! Each presenter will get 20 slides for 15 seconds each: That’s it! Presentations can be about anything so long as they pertain to talent and the future of work, and the audience is encouraged to interact, clap, laugh, cry, tweet, text, and share their experience with each other and the world.

Networking, showmanship, and learning are all things we all need more of in our professional lives. DisruptHR delivers all of that in a high-energy idea forum designed to inform and empower executives, business leaders, and people in the HR field who are passionate about talent. And to top it off, the presentations will provide recertification credits for HRCI and SHRM certifications!

Join us for networking before and after the presentations, some libations, snacks, and plenty of opportunity to be inspired. We’re pumped… and we hope you are too!
