Who's Got Next in HR (WGNinHR) is for the tired, the bold, the innovative and ambitious HR professional. It's a Movement born out of a weariness with the status quo that puts HR leaders and doers in a box. WGNinHR is busting us out of those boxes, and breaking all paradigms. It's for those who dare to ask 'what's next?', expecting to be challenged to new levels in HR - or even outside of it...to the C-Suite and perhaps, eventually, to the top seat. After launching as a (virtual) membership organization (www.wgninhr.org), WGNinHR is now ready to establish a NY presence. If you'd like to meet like-minded HR pros looking for creative ways to advance their careers, join this growing Movement - and become a part of our Meetup. The Meetups will include networking, light refreshments and interactive learning opportunities!
What’s in a Name?
On playgrounds across the nation, and maybe even the globe, someone is screaming out a familiar question – ‘who’s got next?!’ The question is asked of the person confident enough to step onto the court or playground, grab the ball – and then do something amazing with it. That’s where the name for this organization came from. Its focus is on the HR professional who dares to not only ask the ‘what’s next?’ question, but to shape the answer!
This is a Movement looking to challenge your thinking, and that of the folks who surround you who may be suffocating your career aspirations, perhaps unintentionally. The fact is, too many HR pros are convinced that they can’t aspire to more – in their fields, outside their fields, to the C-Suite and even to the CEO seat.
This Meetup is for you. Whether you’re the aspiring HR pro having just graduated and in your first HR gig, or the more seasoned among us with 20+ years of HR and business experience. This is for you if you truly believe that there’s more to your career story.
The goal is a monthly meetup like no other. Yes, there will be networking which is awesome. Yes, there will be refreshments to give us the energy boost at the end of a day. But, we’ll strive for even more. Creativity. Innovation. New – and quirky – thinking about old issues and hot topics which impact HR leaders aspiring for more. Interactive learning sessions will serve as incubators for ideas that may ultimately position HR leaders as the smartest people in the room….whether it’s the conference room or the board room.
Want to Join?
If this group resonates with you, we’d love to have you! But we ask that you engage wholly and completely. When you RSVP, keep your commitment and show up. If you can’t, just let the organizer know at least a couple of days in advance whenever possible. If you volunteer in this powerful Movement, it means that your colleagues are one step closer to reaching new levels because of your efforts. We don’t take that lightly and ask that you don’t either. The world of business needs you and we believe that your life will never again be the same as you connect with like-minded others.
