Introducing PeopleHeRoes by PeopleGoal

At PeopleGoal we talk to HR professionals every day and discuss their unique experiences and challenges that make them “PeopleHeRoes” in our eyes. However, our conversations happen behind closed doors and we thought it would be a great idea to bring all the fascinating experiences and knowledge-sharing to one of you have in one place.

The PeopleHeRoes community was built to help HR and People Professionals across the world who deal with known and unknown grounds to share their experiences, practices and tactics around key HR topics and help each other adapt better to the new world of work that is fuelled by myriad challenges. Especially since the shift to remote working, People teams need to come together to help and support each other to create the most productive environments for their newly dispersed teams. We highly encourage creativity, participation and involvement that drives HR evolvement for all of our members!
