"HR People + Strategy provides remarkable thought leadership and relevant information that helps my team stay on the top of business trends and future practices.”

Liz Huldin, Executive Vice President
People + Organizational Capability The Heritage Group 

“There are many reasons to attend conferences, but, with limited time and resources, we all have to choose which we will attend. For me, content is king at professional events. While I love connecting with colleagues, if I don't learn, am not challenged to think, I am not interested. HRPS is an organization that places a high value on research and thought leadership and that is a consistent value to me."

James Papiano, Consultant


“HR People + Strategy offers me the opportunity to be part of an invaluable network of HR leaders focused on the intersection of people and strategy. HRPS is my go-to resource for HR innovation and thought leadership, and is truly committed to the advancement of the profession.”

Kim McEachron, Chief People Officer
Genomic Health, Inc. 

"If you are an emerging leader engaged in the crux of people and strategy, HRPS is THE organization to join. There are few professional HR organizations that engage beyond the basics in HR – except for HRPS. Three things set this group apart: the level and quality of strategic HR content; the amazing, committed and influential people you get to meet; and the vibrant community you become part of."
