- HR Hackathon Melbourne — Invitation Only | 10th & 21st of October
Hacking is no longer a negative word. It represents the drive to test boundaries and challenge the old ways to find clever avenues that make systems faster, easier and more efficient. So, we’re introducing a new breed of HR professionals — the HR Hackers. The Changemakers. The Innovators.
By applying the “hacking” framework of creativity, analytical thinking and metrics to the HR world, we’ll work through the design cycle in the first half-day event to create testable prototypes for projects that the HR Hackers can take back to their organisation with the goal of implementing some positive disruption in the way they source, select and engage staff.
The challenge will be to imagine and design how hiring, engagement and development would work in a perfect world.
- What if we didn’t need to advertise?
- What would make your job easier?
- What are the problems HR faces in finding, recruiting and keeping good people?
- What’s the old thinking that doesn’t work for HR anymore?
- What are the legacy systems and software that you wish worked better?
Then, the HR Hackers will return on the 21st of October for the second half-day event to share prototype experiments with the wider group, work through key problem areas for ideation focus and further development then wrap up with their next prototype to take back to their business. This time they’ll wrap things up with drinks afterward!

- The Jobs Agenda Dinner Forum — September 2016
The Workible Network, has partnered with recruitment giant Chandler Macleod to launch The Jobs Agenda, an initiative to unleash the potential of Australia’s workforce by tackling the challenges that hold people back from getting into work.
At The Jobs Agenda Dinner Forum, 46 leaders from the Government, Education, Industry and Corporate sectors as well as influencers in the HR technology, job advertising and startup spaces met at Bistrode in Sydney’s CBD to discuss the challenges Australia is facing as we move into a new way of work and the rising impact of technology on jobs.
Attendees at the event included representatives from Jobs For NSW, Data61, Westfield, Adzuna, UTS, UNSW, UOW, startup accelerator Slingshot, Right Click Capital, Dantia, Founders Institute, Yaanma Services, RCSA and major Australian employers. Attendees were asked to make a pledge to addressing at least one of the issues around jobs in categories such as Indigenous, youth, mature age or regional employment, startups, diversity or education.
A larger event is being planned for 2017. If you believe that every Australian, regardless of location, age, race, religion, ability and gender, has a right to a job. And, not just any job but a job they love, we welcome you to visit www.thejobsagenda.com.au and join the movement.

Learnt a lot.”

“The HR Hackathon was not just a most enjoyable experience – it was incredibly valuable to me as a HR Professional. The group of Hackers were diverse in their personalities, roles and experience which allowed us to approach questions and problems from completely new perspectives. The workshop followed clear simple exercises that lead us from messy possibilities to actionable items. So… wow! And – we didn’t have to wear hoodies and dark glasses to hack into a better human experience. Now – that is special!”
— Noa Eriz-Rein, National HR Manager of Max Brenner Australia
“I got more actionable information out of this webinar than I have from all the HR events I’ve attended in the past 6 months. Thanks Fiona and Alli, it was great.”
