Before 2020 the word 'webinar' was not part of our vocabulary (thanks COVID-19) but this invaluable online resource has quickly become widely used by HR industry leaders to share industry news, trends, best practices and case studies.
Participants register their interest online, and are subsequently invited to a virtual event where hosts and invited speakers explore key issues and trends concerning HR and people development professionals. There is usually an opportunity for interaction via a chatroom, and participants can submit their questions or simply sit back and enjoy the webcast.
Regularly attending HR webinars allows you to stay current in the rapidly evolving world of HR. They also allow you to fine tune your people processes and hear from industry leaders whilst growing your network. Webinars are really convenient as there is no need to travel. Register for your virtual event of choice online, plug in your headphones and you're ready to go.
Better still, if you cannot make the live date, there is an option to catch up on demand. Some webinars will even earn you credits towards your HRCI or SHRM certification. And the icing on the cake? Most HR webinars (including every single one on this list) are 100% free to register and attend.
