THE HROS OPPORTUNITY
The common denominator to every organization is people, yet investments in
people function development is minimal.
Faced with rapidly accelerating innovation expectations in the field, most
practitioners lack resources, budgets, or networks needed to keep pace.
The legacy of HR and “war for talent” mindset slows progress and leads to
knowledge hoarding, silos, lack of progress.
This has left a widening gap between leaders and laggards which impacts the
organizations we are building and eventually the bottom line.
HROS brings together global practitioners to “work out loud”, collaborate, and
share practices to better the field.
Transform the field of HR to become more strategic and innovative by
democratizing access to ideas, education, and inspiration.

GOAL OF HROS CASE STUDIES
The goal of HROS is to move the field of HR
forward by supporting practitioners to become
more innovative and impactful in their roles.
Each case study features a company willing to
open their playbook on a specific HR or
recruiting initiative, sharing their work to advance
the conversation and the profession.
They can be informative, educational, or
inspirational. Sometimes they’re all three, but
either way, they’re designed to stop talking about
theory and showcase the organizations getting
innovative HR and recruiting right in practice.

Head of Resourcing &
I love the concept of HR Open
Source. Learning and sharing
honest accounts of how to
succeed in our profession is
incredibly valuable. There is a
lot of preaching from thought
leaders out in the market, and
not enough real-life accounts of
how to succeed in
practice. HROS plugs this vital
gap, and is an excellent forum
for knowledge sharing and

As talent acquisition continues
to transform, practitioners in the
trenches creating change need
resources to inspire and inform
their work, and they usually
come with a price tag. The
beauty of HROS is that
practitioners around the world,
many with similar challenges,
are openly sharing how they
overcome them. HROS not only
gives me the platform to learn
from my peers, but provides a
venue to share my team’s work
and recognize the amazing
work they’ve pioneered
