SocialHRCamp is self described as an “UnConference meets experiential learning workshop.” It’s a grand gathering of HR Professionals where the goal is to provide thought provoking workshops, discussions, and networking opportunities while maintaining a casual, free flowing atmosphere. SocialHRCamp occurs in cities all over North America like Boston, Chicago, Toronto, Vancouver and most recently, Omaha. You can find a complete list of past SocialHRCamp locations here.
As one of SocialHRCamp’s Omaha Sponsors, VentureTech helped to bring the conference to Omaha to further develop the state’s thriving tech startup culture. Josh Berry, managing director at VentureTech gave a presentation on some exciting new HR Technologies.

Other sponsors include: Quantum Workplace, a platform to measure and improve employee engagement and “workplace awesomeness.” And ConnectUP, an application that connects email/messaging accounts in one place to drastically facilitate the communication process.
