February People & Culture Events Calendar

February 5th-6th:

Intro to Modern HR

We all know it. Too many companies are still bogged down in legacy HR "best practices". Our People want more (you want more!) but where do you go to learn how to lead a modern company? Where can you go to future-proof yourself?

Whether you are: currently working in a traditionally operated organization; a recent post-secondary graduate; or someone looking to transition into the People & Culture (HR) world, this bootcamp will open your eyes to the inspiring People & Culture practices of modern companies around North America. You can expect a combination of lecturing, guest speakers, a mini-hackathon, and high-energy fun from start to finish!


Career Experts Panel: Career Paths in Tech

Hosted by BCjobs.ca in partnership with BC Tech and Discovery Foundation, the Career Experts series of events is aimed at preparing candidates to make their best impressions at Talent Day and as they move forward with their careers in tech.

We’ll be having a discussion with local HR and recruitment experts in tech to learn more about non-linear career paths. Learn how to move up (or across) in a company, how these paths can help you find your dream job, and how this can be a useful career strategy - especially if you’re new to tech, a new immigrant, or looking for a new challenge!
