Description

Winter is here, close the gates…the AgileHR Meetup goes North!

Leading AgileHR pioneers, Sky Betting and Gaming (SBG), are hosting our first Northern UK AgileHR Meetup on the evening of 15th Feb 2018 at their cool tech office in central Leeds.

The SBG People Operations team are sharing their story of transformation, that saw the team grow from a group of HR Business Partners into an Agile, self-organising collective, working across the different tribes that make up their dynamic SBG business.

On the night our Meetup special guests are Kirk Vallis, Global Head of Creative Leadership Development at Google, and Matt Bolton-Alarcon, Creativity Expert from Special Sauce, exploring what it means when people work at their best and how to continuously harness this vitality within your organisation.

Then to wrap it all up we will deep dive into the AgileHR mindset, with the aim of helping you translate this new way of working into everyday practice.

What is AgileHR?

Transforming the fundamental principles of Human Resources (HR) to into People Operations leading Agile, digital and networked organisations. AgileHR aims to build a shared value between your customer, business and people by embracing:

  • A mindset, that applies the Agile values, normally associated with ‘tech', to HR
  • A deliberate move away from HR ‘best practice’ and blueprinting one-size-fits-all solutions
  • User experimentation to validate what works and what doesn’t
  • Agile work practices, like Scrum and Kanban, to get things done
  • Design principles to develop human centric people practices and solutions
  • Evidence-based decision making, that uses data and insight to drive each iteration

What to expect on the night?

  1. An opportunity to meet and mingle with fellow HR professionals and leading AgileHR practitioners
  2. Group discussion, two-way dialogue and sharing of stories
  3. Drinks and snacks to keep you nourished
