Being an HR Manager in a Web 2.0 company

Many people have commented that there is still a session in the HR Futures Conference without a speaker, could they fill the slot. The issue has not been there was no speaker, more that I had too many speakers to choose from! Over the last month I have been working with several people to finalise who will speak and what they will speak about. I wanted a case study so that attendees could get an “in the trenches” view of HR , Social Media and Web 2.0.

I am very happy and excited to announce that Joris Luijke HR Manager from Atlassian will be speaking, and that the program is now full!

If you don’t know Atlassian you really should.

Atlassian is an Australian software company specialising in collaboration and development tools. An amazing success story, founded in 2002, they have 14,500+ customers, 195 employees worldwide, offices in Sydney, San Francisco and Amsterdam with FY08 revenues ~$35 million. Altlassian’s wiki product Confluence was listed 2nd in the 2008 Top 100 Australia Web 2.0 Applications, top in Gartners Magic Quadrant for Social Software report, and the founders Mike Cannon-Brookes and Scott Farquhar have been listed multiple times as some of top Australia’s entrepreneurs.

Now the talk.

I have asked Joris to cover what it is like leading the HR team in a fast growing Web 2.0 organisation, where all employees are encouraged to blog, policies are stored in a wiki and generally culture is Web 2.0 in nature.

More details to come.
