What we're about

Agile HR offers you a mindset and way of working to help innovate your people practices.

The world of work is transforming. Business seeks agility, collaboration and a rapid response to customer needs. While our people seek a personal employee experience and great place to work. Current Human Resource practices are increasingly out-of-touch with these demands. Agile HR transforms the fundamental principles of HR into people operations leading Agile, digital and networked organisations.

All welcome

Open to anyone willing and able to innovate the human side of their workplace. Example members include HR Directors, HR Business Partners, Learning and Development specialists, Agile coaches and People and Change consultants.

The Agile HR Meetup is global and currently hosts events in London, Leeds, Edinburgh, Amsterdam and Sydney!

Our theme looks at how Human Resources (HR) and People Experience teams are reinventing their approach to HR service design by focusing on the user experience (UX) of work. Our hosts are the Ways of Working team at Lloyds Banking Group, who are currently redesigning their employee experience (EX) through Agile HR mindset and techniques. Our special guest is Yusuf Okucu, who will share Vistaprint’s inspiring Agile HR story. The Agile HR Meetup is a global learning network for HR, Learning and Development (L&D), Agile and, People and Culture professionals, on a mission to innovate HR and transform the profession for the future of work. Join us and help shape the discussion. UX = EX Delivering a great and memorable customer experience has become the modern business mantra for our digital age. It’s perhaps unsurprising to now see this drive for customer-centricity begin to reshape how we approach HR and People Practices. By tracking the employee experience (EX) like a customer journey, and redesigning each element using design thinking and Agile techniques, HR teams are not only reinventing their approach to HR service design but the whole operating model of HR itself. Lloyds Way of Working Team On the night, Natalie Bage, Head of Ways of Working at Lloyds Bank, and Luke Platt, Ways of Working Manager, will share some of their latest Agile HR work, explaining how they are mapping out and redesigning the employee journey across the organisation. The discussion and interactive exercises will shift your perspective on how to design user-friendly and human-centric HR services and practices. You’ll also be challenged to explore new ways the HR operating model can be structured to service the EX of an organisation. Talent and Experience at Vistaprint We’re thrilled to announce, Yusuf Okucu, who heads up the Talent and Experience Insights team at Vistaprint, as our special guest on the night. Yusuf will share Vistaprint’s amazing Agile HR story, and how their Talent and Experience team use Agile mindset and techniques to constantly enrich the user experience of work. The whole team is now structured to continuously deliver features and improvements to the employee experience, similar to how the business aims to continuously improve the customer experience. Vistaprint’s model is truly ground breaking. Their case study also demonstrates how HR’s operating model can be multi-functional and fully integrated with the wider organisation. Yusuf’s session will inspire you to think big about how to build a great employee experience back in your own organisation.

Agile HR Meetup Amsterdam | Host Booking.com | Agile Hybrid

** BOOKING INFORMATION: In order to reserve your place please register in Eventbrite here >https://www.eventbrite.com/e/agile-hr-meetup-amsterdam-host-bookingcom-agile-hybrid-tickets-54243060454 Please note we've already hit capacity but you can join the waitlist via the eventbrite link above :-) Finally!!! The Agile HR Meetup is back in Amsterdam this February 2019. Our hosts are Agile trail blazers Booking.com and we’re joined by speakers leading the way globally in Agile HR. Our theme explores Agile hybrid models and looks at how to navigate an organisation that is a mix of Agile and non-Agile teams, and what this means for Human Resources (HR) and people practices. The Agile HR Meetup is a vital learning global network for Human Resources (HR), Learning and Development (L&D), Agile and, People and Culture professionals, on a mission to innovate HR and transform the profession for the future of work. Join us and help shape the discussion. Agile Hybrid Organisations and One-Size-Doesn’t-Fit-All HR Agile is rapidly emerging as the new working paradigm in our VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) world. Across the globe organisations and teams are redesigning how they work in response to change or disruption in their market, as well as the need to gain competitive advantage through digital innovation or an enriched customer experience. However, Agile transformation doesn’t always mean that all teams ‘go Agile’ within an organisation. It’s also increasingly common for parts of an organisation to embrace Agile working, while other parts continue with more traditional working practices or evolve their working methods at a different pace. So, what does this mean for HR and people practices? How do we begin to service a one-size-doesn’t-fit-all workplace? Also, can we still introduce more Agile oriented and human-centric people practices within non-Agile teams? Join us to explore these themes and learn from practical, real world case studies from some fab speakers. Booking.com and HR for non-Agile On the night, Tamara Molinas, Global HR Manager at Booking.com and Agile People leader, will share insights and learning on how she built Agile HR practices within Booking.com over the last 5 years, and her recent example of introducing new people practices within a non-Agile part of the business. Navigating Agile and non-Agile at ING We’re also joined by Alize Hofmeester, from the ING Agile global transformation team, who will share her personal story of embracing Agile within HR, what she learnt from leading Agile transformation across different countries and how to embrace a one-size-doesn’t-fit-all mindset. Agile HR in a Nutshell Launch Excitingly, Natal Dank, Agile HR pioneer and co-founder of the Agile HR Community, will also be launching the new free Agile HR in a Nutshell infographic, recently designed in collaboration with the great Mia Kolmodin, from Dandy People, who crafts the fabulous Agile in a Nutshell series, and Riina Helström, fellow co-founder of the Agile HR Community.
