Companies who home in on employees’ talents see more success. Here's a simple way to find employee strengths.
Travelstart, co-organisers together with Hi5, opened the doors of their stunning headquarters at Longkloof studios once again to host the event. With the support of sponsors Heritage Wealth Partners, Enigmeir, Riders&Elephants, Offerzen, Darling Brew & Junior Burgers, the evening was set to be another roaring success!
If you didn’t know already, the format of DisruptHR talks are a mashup of TED and Ignite, with each speaker given only 5 minutes and 20 slides to blow our minds 💥 There were some key themes that came through on the evening — some were not surprising or new, but the fact that they are still being talked about means that either change has been slow, or not enough people have been informed yet. I’ll list a couple of observations from the evening (in no particular order):
Check out the talk videos below:
Attendees could vote for their favourite speakers by giving them a Hi5 using the Hi5 App. There was also some serious tweeting happening as they spoke, with people watching on the social sidelines to get the low down of what was being said.
The winning speaker with the most Hi5’s and backing was Jen van Heerden from GradConnection with her talk, Going wild: Finding and recruiting free-range graduates. She won an amazing flight voucher sponsored by Travelstart!
Riders&Elephants, a New Zealand-based company, sponsored 2 x Emotional Culture decks — an insanely simple, collaborative card deck tool for creating your company’s values. These were given to randomly selected Hi5'ers, Elrika Ferrera & Naomi Bruwer.
Hi5 has partnered with Riders&Elephants to offer a 25% discount on The Emotional Culture Deck — check it out.
The venue was so packed that some attendees had to take ‘standing seats’ — luckily their strength was renewed by Darling Brew’s tasty craft beers and Junior’s delicious burgers 😋🍔🍻 I enjoyed Darling Brew’s Long Claw (very tasty and zesty, not too much of a bitter aftertaste) with Junior’s beef burger (wow, blew my mind!).
In my opinion, this event has been the best DisruptHR in Cape Town so far! The next #DisruptHRCPT event will take place on 7 March 2019. Get your special price Super Early Bird tickets now!
